10 tips for better photos

You may get overwhelmed with all the features and options on your camera. You may not even know how to make adjustments to get the types of results you are looking for. To help you get started, here are some of the top tips for great photos.

Consider Investing in a Tripod for Still Photos

If you take a lot of scenics or still image photos, then it can be difficult to get the right stability on your images. Rather than trying to edit the photos after the fact, consider purchasing a basic tripod that you can use. Especially if you're taking group photos or many shots of a specific still scene, tripods can be a great way to capture a scene with complete stability.

Experiment with Lighting to Capture the Essence of a Scene

It's hard to make a good photo without a light. You need light and a lot of it.

Before rushing to take a shot, step back and review the lighting of a scene. By adjusting the angle of the photograph, you can change the way that lighting hits a particular scene. Look through the lens at various angles before you select a particularly compelling lighting variety.

Use Contrast to Your Advantage

Taking a photo of a white leaf on snow won't come out too well - this same principle applies to any type of photograph. Use shadows and other variations in color before you take the photo. The result will be more compelling photographs and more striking results.

Get closer

That's very simple: go as close as possible. It's much better that taking a picture from distance. And avoid using digital zoom!

Create a Natural Frame for Your Photo

Rather than relying upon cropping or editing to create a framing, use natural elements such as lines or arches to create a natural frame. With a natural outline, you'll be able to ensure that you take high-quality photos with a particularly interesting framing that is well suited for prints and design.

Pay close attention to symmetry

When taking your photos, always focus on the complete visual field, rather than the particular object in focus. By capturing entire fields look at the symmetry and centering of the photo on the landscape.

Increase your shutter speed for Action Shots

If you're taking action shots of sports or nature, make sure to increase the exposure value so that your photos aren't blurry. High shutter speed shots allow you to capture fast-moving shots in the essence, producing great action shots without blur or obstruction.

Always Review Your Photos to Ensure They Come Out Well

It may be a good idea to take many versions of a particular photo to ensure the final product is exactly what you want.

Be Careful to Level Your Camera

Beginning photographers often tilt their cameras up or down by accident, resulting in stilted shots which can distort the visual field. Always take time to balance the photo in advance of shooting so that you get a quality, level photo that captures the essence of the scene.

Bring Your Group Photos to Life

Rather than relying upon still, standard group photos, consider utilizing interesting poses or shots to get the very best out of your photos. Arranging people in interesting poses and allowing them to be spontaneous can result in much more natural, appealing photos. If you're taking large group shots, ensure that everyone in the frame is visible.

Make Sure that You Review the Impact of Flash

Early photographers often are overly-reliant upon flash photography to capture a scene - always check to ensure that flash is having the impact you expect before taking a photo. In certain situations, it may be better to limit the use of flash.
