Balancing is the key.
It is good if you know how to balance out your shot perfectly. Constant practice and smooth precision play equal part along with balancing your subjects in the frame.
One Saturday morning in October last year, I went to my roof to capture some sunrise snaps. An old, rusted nail gave me an idea to capture a shot with sun being shown right on top of it. Since I use a smartphone for my photography, I don’t have much control over the settings of the camera, which are mostly auto.
I placed myself at the right spot and was looking directly into the rising sun through my smartphone screen when I captured this shot. After I looked at this snap on my laptop, I realized the mistake of my haste. I didn’t placed my smartphone at the right point, creating a tiny gap between the nail and the rising sun.
As I look into this snap now, I realize that of all the known shapes, how much perfectly accuarate a circle is. It starts from a point, travels all the way through in a linearly circular path to reach back the same point from where its journey started.
Just like that, all you need for your one amazing snap is the balancing of your subjects in a perfect circle, along with constant practice and smooth precision.
