To take good photos the first thing to remember is this: It’s the photographer that takes great photos, not the camera. Perhaps we’ve been taking photos using our digital cameras for some time, but never really got the beautiful shots we wanted. Here are some tips that might help you to shoot like a pro.
1. Know the Camera
If you buy a digital camera, your main responsibility is to understand its ins and outs. Learn how to use different camera modes, how to control exposure, and how to use the flash. The knowledge you gain about the camera will be invaluable when you’re out in the field taking those special photos.
2. Hold the Camera Level
A basic rule of photography is to hold the camera level. Since most digital cameras come with a LCD, you can use it to properly frame your shots. Next time you’re taking a shot, try to look for the horizontal lines and use them as guides. A good example is to make use of the horizon when you’re taking a photo of a sunset.
