We thought it would be fun to share a few photography tips today. When boiled down to the basics, here are 3 easy steps to taking great photos.
1. Get Ready - Make sure you have prepared yourself and your equipment. You can't take photos without memory cards or charged batteries. You should be calm, confident, and comfortable.
2. Be Steady - Many photos that would have been great photos come out blurred due to fast or unsteady hands. Think about using a tripod or monopod for steading the camera. If handholding the camera, try locking your elbow to your side and breathe (don't hold your breath).
3. Focus & Capture - Make sure your main subject is the focus of your photo. Look at your entire photo in the view finder ensuring there is nothing that will pull attention away from your subject (like branches or telephone poles growing out of your subjects head, clutter, etc.). When ready, capture your photo and don't be afraid to take many photos at different angles.
If we were to add a 4th step, it would be – Have Fun!
