ing Great Photographs Are you interested in developing your photography skills and becoming an expert at photo shooting? You may be just starting out or just bought a digital camera. After snapping up numerous photos, you are beginning to wonder why your pictures do not look that great after all. When you look into a picture that pleases the eye, can you detect the subtlety that makes it appealing? We all know a well taken photo when we see one. Here are some tips that you can use. These tips apply to both digital and traditional cameras.These are just four very fundamental tips and strategies to help improve your photos. Photography skills can always be improved and is never ending. You have to keep on practicing and shooting in order to improve your photography skills. Get a critic and show them your pictures. Then you will able to improve your skills. You can even post your photos to online forums for them to rate your pictures. Take advantage of these and hopefully you will become the next award winning photographer.Even when you have great hardware such as a canon rebel digital SLR, taking great photographs can be tricky but if you follow these 10 simple tips, you will see huge improvement in your picturesHere are four tips for a better picture.1. Get a little closer, do not be shy. One of the biggest mistakes most beginning photographers make is shooting from so far away. They leave too much distance between themselves and their subjects. Instead, get up close and personal. Fill up as much of the camera frame, with your subject, as you can. You can always reshape, trim, and resize a good quality shot. But you cannot continue to blow up a distant subject and hope that it will come into focus. It just won't happen.2. Focus your shot on only one subject. Determine what the main subject of the photo will be, and catch that image. Try and find the one key subject, person, or event that accurately portrays the feeling you are trying to capture.3. In addition to getting one subject, in your photos, you will want to make the background of the photo as simple as possible. Busy, distracting backgrounds pull the attention away from the central theme of your photo. The subject of your photo is absolutely the most important element, and anything that detracts from the subject can ruin your shot.4. Subject placement. Most people place the subject at the exact center of the frame. There is nothing wrong with this. However this often leads to a bland and uninteresting picture. You may use a method called the rule of thirds. Imagine having a camera lens split into 9 equal sized boxes, 3 across and 3 down (like having a tic tac toe game printed right on your camera lens). Where those "tic tac toe" lines cross, should become the focusing point of your subject, when you are arranging to take your photo.1.If you are taking photographs of people or animals, you need to do to get to their level. When you are at the same level, you capture your subject's amazing smiles and warm gazes. 2.Work with a plain background. A plain background emphasizes your subject, minimizes distractions and you will not be looking for poles or plants sprouting from people. 3.It may seem counter-intuitive but you try using your flash in daylight. On a cloudy day, the flash will lightyour subjects face and fill in some of the dark shaded areas. 4.Try some close-ups. Zooming in until your subject fills the picture is a great way to minimize the distractions. 5.Try framing your shot in both vertical and horizontal planes. Some pictures just look better when they are captured in a vertical composition. 6.Lock the focus of your picture on an off-center subject. The way to do this with SLR is to center the subject and press the shutter button half way (which locks in the focus). Now you can reframe your picture (with your subject slightly off-center) and finish taking the preacher by pushing the shutter button all the way down. 7.Make the subject of your photograph slightly off-center. This will always catch the eye better than a centered subject will. Just remember to lock the focus as described in the previous point. 8.Understand the range of your flash, for most cameras this is 4 to 5 steps away. If you are outside the range of the flash, you shot will not be lit the way you expect it to be. 9.Before you take the picture, check the light. Look for shadows and see the effect that they have on the picture. Where is the sun? If it's overhead it will cast harsh shadows, particularly on people's faces. 10.Finally, become a director. Arrange the people the way you want them, try using props and do not be afraid The following are links to a series of articles that explaining with various aspects of digital photography.
