Photography Tips

Here are a few basic tips on How to Take a Better Photograph along with tips on Manual Settings

1) ALWAYS make sure you have an empty memory card, full batteries and you camera is set on the best image size and quality - Example - If your set your camera images size at 800 x 600 pixels you can take roughly 300/400 images (depending on size of memory card) but if you set your camera to 3748 x 2836 you will only be able to take 100/150 images - by setting your camera to take the least amount of images photography_tips you will produce larger images which are suitable for printing an image at a larger size - if you choose the smaller setting of 800 x 600 pixels you will be able to take lots of images but you will not be able to print any bigger than a postcard size - which is not good enough if you want to print a bigger image.

2) ALWAYS PRE- FOCUS - when you go to take your next photograph remember to pre- focus before taking the image - as you push your finger on the shutter button press slowly down until you hear a beep noise, when you here this fully extend the button without releasing your finger, this will focus on the subject you are pointing at creating crisper images.

3) STOP ... LOOK ... TAKE- When you stop to take your next photograph take time to look around yourself to see what is in your view worth taking a photograph of - sometimes less is more - this also eliminates unwanted clutter which is not always wanted in an image like signs, bins etc.

4) FOREGROUND, MIDDLE and BACKGROUND - When we view an image we should be able to see interest, impact and our eye should be able to view the image with ease -Say you have an element of interest in the foreground it will then make our eye lead through to the centre of the image where you may have other interest which then leads our eye through to the back of the image - Using this technique will always create an interesting image.
