Five tips for taking better pics

February 05, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Digital cameras are amazing. These days they have touch screens, zooms as long as the Hubble Telescope and connectivity to something called Facebook.

So why on earth would you need photo tips?! Because a pot doesn't cook dinner by itself! 

1-Have a iphone? Who doesn't these days! Don't just point and shoot...touching the screen on the important subject like a baby or a flower will do two things: focus and get a better exposure. Click away!

2-Wait for that moment. So your little baseball player just scored a home run huh? Got a shot of them hitting, running and crossing home plate? The real shot is the emotion when they are celebrating the home run with their teammates . Always be ready and anticipate the emotional moments too!

3-Let there be light! Turn that flash on! Wether its inside or out, chances are you could use a little extra light. Try some with or without the flash or   grab a margarita!

4-Create a sense of depth. Taking a pic of a landscape scene? Add your husband, wife, kids, or pet...anything that helps the viewer feel like they are there and gives depth/scale to the scene.

5-Last but certainly not the last of many tips to come. Download-Pick out the keepers-DELETE the ones you don't need/want. Consider it taking out the trash. Computers can only hold a certain amount of music and photos and even a 12 megapixel point and shoot can fill up a 1TB hard drive quickly. Or grab a margarita!

Happy shooting!
