Tips on Making a Great Photo.

  1. Lock the Focus:
·         Center the subject.              
·         Press the shutter button half way down.
·         Re-frame your picture (while still holding the shutter button.)
·         Finish by pressing the shutter button all the way down.
  1. Watch the Light:
·         Great light makes great pictures. Study the light in your pictures.
·         For people pictures, choose the soft lighting of cloudy days. Avoid overhead sunlight that casts harsh shadows across faces.
·         For scenic pictures, use the long shadows and color of early and late daylight.
  1. Be a Picture Director:
·         Take an extra minute and become a picture director, not just a passive picture-taker.
·         Add some props, rearrange your subjects, or try a different view point.
·         Bring your subjects together and let their personalities shine. Then watch your pictures dramatically improve.
  1. Use a Plain Background:
·         Before taking a picture, check the area behind your subject.
·         Lookout for trees or poles sprouting from your subjects head.
·         A cluttered background will be distracting while a plain background will emphasize your subject.
  1. Move in Close:
·         To create impactful pictures, move in close and fill your picture with the subject .
·         Move a few steps closer or use the zoom until the subject fills the viewfinder. You will eliminate background distractions and show off the details in your subject.
·         For small objects, use the camera’s macro or flower’ mode to get sharp close-ups.
