Photo Tips

Since I've finally buckled down and started the lessons in the photography basics class I won a few months ago, I'm slowly learning the intricacies of my camera, and how to take better photos. The first lesson starts out with, I believe, the most critical parts of information about photography. Sure, aperture, shutter speed and all the technical details are also important, but the very first step is a simple and basic one and should be followed by every photographer on all their photos, whether an expert or a novice in photography. The best part is that it's short and simple to follow:

Tips For Better Photos

1. Have a clear subject in mind
2. Focus on, or draw attention to the subject
3. Simplify

Questions To Ask Yourself Before Taking A Photo

1. What is my subject?
2. How can I focus attention on my subject?
3. Have I eliminated all distracting elements and only included items that add to the subject?

Both the tips and the questions seem to focus on one thing: Know Thy Subject.

Thanks for the lesson.
