Five Tips for Fabulous Photos
Show people doing something
Photos are always more engaging with people in them. Photograph people when they’re in action and frame them off-center to add even more visual interest.
Wait for dramatic lighting
The right lighting can turn even the most expected scene into an exceptional one.
Look for unusual viewpoints
Take time, Walk around. Look up. Look down. Find a perspective no one else has, and make your picture extra special.
Include foreground elements to add depth to scenic photos
Foreground elements add context and perspective, drawing the viewer in to create a feeling of really being there.
Fill in with flash
If your subjects are standing in a shadow and the scenery behind them is in sunlight, turn on the flash to balance out the scene. This also reduces harsh shadows on their faces.
