Improve your photography skills with our top tips

It’s time to get to #Work2020 on your best photos for our newest Contest launching this Friday 17.01.20!

Read our top tips on taking Top 50 worthy photos now and get your preparation underway.

Keep your distance!

Try not to interfere with the work of the subject(s) you’re photographing. If you remain simply a spectator the result will be a lot more natural and authentic.

Patterns, patterns, patterns

If the work you’re shooting is manual labour or manufacturing of a product make the most of the patterns that may result from the repetition. Finding scale of production like the captured in the photos below can create images that are extremely visually appealing and interesting.
