Rule number 1 - never be afraid to experiment with your photography!
Don't always have the subject in the centre of the frame - look for more
interesting and unusual compositions.
If taking landscape shots, try to use something or someone as foreground.
It will add interest to the picture and give a sense of perspective.
Watch the background to make sure that there is nothing intrusive in
your photograph - such as trees sticking out of people's heads! By moving
slightly either way you may get a much better image.
When taking pictures of people outdoors, don't make them look directly
into bright sunlight. They are likely to squint and spoil the photo.
Got a pet? Animals make for great pictures - but be prepared to take
plenty of photos to get the perfect shot, and try not to use the flash
as it may startle them.
If you want to capture the very best shot of that special moment, always
take plenty of pictures. Digital cameras are ideal for this, as you can
simply delete the photos you don't want without wasting film.
Carry spare batteries and film so you don't run out at that vital moment.
Whether you've got a single use camera or the latest digital SLR, make
sure you spend a bit of time getting to know your camera. This is especially
important before a special trip or event when there may be one opportunity
to get the shot. It's too late when you get home to realise you've had
the camera on the wrong setting.
Learn how to hold your camera correctly so you can hold it comfortably
and keep it steady. You will also avoid ruining your pictures by covering
the flash or including your fingers!
For those occasions when you think your camera gear might be at risk from
sand, sea, sun-cream, or even beer, why not use a single use camera instead?
Models can cost less than �5 so won't break the bank, and are great for
parties where they might receive the odd small bump or bash.
Why not try digital? - most digital cameras have an LCD screen so you
can view an image straight away and delete any that you don't like - saving
money on wasted film and processing costs.
most important thing when choosing a digital camera is good image quality,
and your best guide to this is the camera's resolution. This is measured
in megapixels (millions of pixels), and generally speaking, the more megapixels
you've got, the sharper your shots, and the bigger you can blow them up.
A 3.0MP model for example will give image quality suitable for A4-sized
If you are a keen photographer, you may want to consider a digital SLR. The
prices are getting lower all the time, and the combination of the creativity
of digital photography and the functionality and flexibility of a traditional
SLR means it's possible for everyone to get great results.
With digital you can edit and enhance your images on computer - from
removing red-eye or improving contrast, through to removing people from
or adding people to shots. What you can do is limited only by your imagination
- and skill! But remember to save your original images separately to any
that you edit.
