2. Fill the frame with your subject. Leave the distracting stuff
out. Dont be afraid to get a little bit close! 3. Use the focus
lock feature. Press the shutter down halfway and use the rectangle
to lock in on your subject before pressing it all the way down to
take the photo. This will keep your subject in focus. 1 4. Keep the
sun behind you; dont take a picture facing into the sun. 5. Try to
take photos from different angles: above, below and eye- level. You
may have to get down low to catch a great photo! (I had to get on
my tummy to take the photo on the right. I wanted to capture the
flowers, the hill where my husband proposed to me, AND the sky.) 6.
Look for unusual shapes, colors and textures 7. Pay attention to
the horizon line in your background. Try to keep it level. Or, you
can try tilting it to create an effect. 8. Look for photo
opportunities in reflections. 9. Use a tripod, or rest your camera
on a flat surface, when you dont have a lot of natural lighting.
10. Final Thoughts Dont be afraid to take lots of photos. You can
always delete them later! Dont be in a hurry. Take time to frame
your shot thoughtfully. When you are looking for beauty, the world
becomes a more beautiful place. Practice seeing through the eyes of
a photographer it can change your outlook on life!
