- Get down on their level: Hold the camera at eye level to capture the power of those magentic gazaes and mesmerizing smiles.
- Use a plain brackground: A cluttered background can be distracting, while a plain background will emphasize your subject.
- Use flash outdoors: Even outdoors, use a flash to improve your pictures. It’s great for lighting dark shadows under the eyes and nose.
- Move in close: To create more impactful pictures, move in close and fill your picture with the object.
- Lock focus: Lock the focus to ensure a sharp image when the objects is off-center.
- Move it from middle: Imagine a tic-tac-toe in your viewfinder. Now place the subject at one of the intersections of lines.
- Know what your flashe’s range: Pictures taken beyond the maximum range will look too dark. Read your manual.
- Watch the light: Great light makes great pictures. For people, avoid overhead sun that casts harsh shadows across the faces.
- Be the director: Don’t just be a passive picture taker. Add some props, rearrange your subjects, or try a different viewpoint.
