- Get close in so that your main subject fills the frame and becomes the main element.
- Take more images outside – there is nothing better than natural light. You don’t have to use the flash so your image becomes much more colourful if the sun is behind you.
- Don’t place the subject central – the most interesting visually pleasing images are those that divide the subject into the upper, lower left third of the frame.
- Experiment with unusual angles – Get down low, up high, move to the side, or try positioning something in front of your camera.
- Take photos at sunrise and sunset because the light comes in from an angle and isn’t direct or harsh so gives your subject a natural orange glow. This emphasises shadows within your image too.
- Avoid digital zoom because you are cropping your image.
- Take as many shots as you can
- Shoot in continuous mode when capturing action
