Having sufficient light is important for taking quality photos, but if you are taking photos in bright or direct sunlight, you may end up with bad shots because of too much light. Downsides to direct sunlight shots include glaring, awkward shadows, uneven highlights and human subjects squinting if they face the camera. Aim to take outdoor pictures during the two golden hours, dusk and dawn.
Check out this tip! Learn the uses of the different shutter speeds. These are labeled S, A, M an P on your camera. The “P” on the camera represents program mode. This setting is your automatic one. The shutter and aperture speed are automatically set up for your use. If you are not sure what you will shoot, use the “P” setting.
You want the background to be slightly blurred when taking photographs of people. When everything in the picture is focused including the background, it will make the picture a bit busy and it will be hard for the viewers to specifically focus on the subject of the picture. An easy way to do this is to make your background is further from your subject.
Practice taking pictures of people. Ask permission before photographing anyone. If you are on a vacation and taking tons of photos, you can look back at them later and reminisce about particular events and times that are memorable. Many times the people in the photos do not seem particularly important or noticeable at the time you snap the picture, the reason you frame the shot to begin with will be clear when you look back at them. It’s a great idea to focus on the unique styles and expressions visible in each individual picture.
An essential element of taking great photographs is taking a large amount of them; make sure you have a substantial memory card to store them all. A 16 gigabyte memory card will store all of your photos without the necessity of changing memory cards during a photo shoot. You will also be able to shoot RAW photos when you have a big memory card, which will allow you to edit them the most in post-production.
