Photography Tips

These general tips will help you improve the quality of the photos you shoot.

Because this is a digital camera, it’s easy to experiment and try different techniques. If you don’t like the results, you can delete the pictures and try again. There are many factors that contribute to good photography; the following list provides some tips.

• For the best images, take lots of pictures to increase your chance

of capturing just the right shot. Afterward, you can go back and

delete the images you don’t want.

• Make sure that your light source is behind or to the side of the

camera, rather than in front of the camera. The person taking

pictures should not be looking directly into a light source.

• When taking a picture, hold the camera as steady as possible to

prevent blurry photos. Try resting your elbows on something stable.

• If you are taking a picture of a person, try to get direct eye contact

with the person to create a more engaging picture.

• When taking a photo, make sure to notice what is in the

background of your photo. Using a plain background will put more

emphasis on the subject of your picture.

• Try using a different angle when capturing an ordinary object to

make the picture more interesting.

the picture. The camera will beep.
