How to take a good photo? (Photographer of Amish, Doyle Yoder)

Get the word out!

Doyle has been capturing the essence of Amish Country and the Amish lifestyle all over Amish communities in the Eastern US for decades.

I asked him what it takes to capture a good shot.

“It’s hard to say. Depends on what you consider a good shot,” he replied.

I re-asked—”For the general viewer, what does it take?”

“I don’t know. It’s like—did you ever take a perfect picture? It’s hard to say. Some people like it a certain way, and others like it another way.”

Then his recommendation: “I recommend you just play around. Take anything you can think of—idea-wise. And try it. See what happens. Doesn’t cost anything on a digital camera.”
