Quality, appearance and lighting matters
If something is beautifully presented, it is widely accepted. So framing and presentation of a picture are very important.

In 2018, an experiment in this field with the help of technology is expected to increase and more equipment are hoped to be introduced to make this easier.
Technique matters the most
You can learn visual aesthetics and quality of photography but the technique of clicking a picture is something which comes from within. It is the technique of clicking a picture which makes them eternal. A touch of storytelling behind every photo with a tinge of emotions, value, and reality helps the viewer connect with it more. The old trends in this realm like the “film look” is believed to diminish and the focus can be more on selective coloring and vignettes in 2018. As the number of budding photographers is increasing, to make your click timeless is the biggest challenge in this year and the time comes.
