When trying to take a good photograph, keep your technique simple. When photographing a specific event, set your camera’s features on the appropriate settings ahead of time.
Experiment with new ways to use your camera, and take some original pictures. A great picture should show the world a unique point of view, and exhibit unmistakable personal style. Don’t take the same pictures you’ve seen everywhere over and over millions of times. Try to find interesting angles, and be creative!
When deciding on which shots to display, choose the best ones. Avoid repetition by only choosing a small, varied selection of your best work. People get bored seeing the same thing repeatedly. Look for ways to highlight different facets of your photographs as you inject each image with a fresh take.
There is a feature on the camera called white balance, manually play around with it. While taking shots indoors, sometimes you get a yellowish color due to the light bulbs. If you adjust your camera’s white balance, you will have better results with indoor shots. This will give your photo’s a more professional looking appearance.
