    tips to achieve your maximum potential behind

    the lens of your camera.

    If you are taking pictures in the sun during the spring or summer, make sure to turn the flash on.

    Failing to put the flash on your camera can result in a bad glare, which can taint your photos.

    Once you turn the flash on, you can take pictures as you usually would.

    If becoming a serious photographer is something you want to do, then you will need a dSLR.

    These professional quality cameras allow you to view your photograph as you take the shot.

    Look for a DSLR that is full frame, as this provides the largest image sensor, and therefore yields

    the most detailed images.

    Make sure the background you choose complements the subject of the photo. If you take a photo

    of a model against a busy background, the viewer's attention is going to be drawn to the

    background rather than the clothes. As a general rule, simple backgrounds with colors that

    contrast with those of the subject are ideal.

    You should always be on the lookout for photographers who inspire you. When you spend time

    looking at other photographers' work, you will be able to see many different ways to capture an


    When selecting photographs to place on display or show to an audience, limit your choices to

    your very best images. Don't show everyone or all of the exact same subject. Your audience can

    become bored with repetitive images or too many of them. Change things up, and show variety

    in your photography.

    A good photography tip is to always be early when you're planning on shooting a sunset or a

    sunrise. This will give you ample time to compose the perfect shot. You don't want to get there

    and be forced to compose a lousy shot because you're short on time.

    Move closer to your subject when you are taking the photograph. A subject too far in the

    distance loses too much detail for the shot to be very good. So, to avoid a subject with a lack of

    details, make sure everything is clearly visible.

    When you have the perfect shot in view and you are ready to push the shutter, make sure that you

    hold your breath and do not move an inch. Even minimal movement can cause your perfect shot

    to be ruined. Take a second before you hit the shutter to straighten the shot and hold your breath.

    A great photography tip is to stop using flash. A lot of people use flash whenever they take

    pictures because they don't know any better. Flash flattens everything out, creating an

    undesirable and artificial photograph. Instead try to stick to more natural lighting when shooting

    your subjects.

    Get closer when you are taking photos. Especially when you are taking a series of shots, from

    which you will chose the best, get in there. The better your scene fills the frame, the better the

    overall picture will be. Take several shots, so you can get the nicest shot possible.

    Take the time to improve the sharpness of your shots by adding a key piece of photographic

    equipment to your arsenal. This would be a tripod. This will hold your camera steady, unlike

    your hands, and will be an effective way to ensure that you take clear, sharp, shots of your


    A great photography tip is to keep a folder of your best images. This can be a great way to look

    back and see the highlights of your work without having to dig through piles and piles of

    photographs. Update the folder as you take more and more pictures.

    When you are dealing with low lighting settings and you do not have a tripod, try to be aware of

    your shutter speed. Make sure it has a denominator that is greater than the focal length of the

    lens. Otherwise, you will not be able to capture sharp images.

    When approaching scenarios or subjects that are unfamiliar to you, don't hesitate to practice

    before the actual photo shoot. Because every shot is different, these practice shots will offer you

    the chance to make adjustments before reaching the final product. Lighting often changes, so

    take as many practice photos as necessary between shots to ensure your settings are correctly set.

    Use your camera as a tool for your shots. Try blurring the background and focusing on the main

    subject by decreasing your field depth.

    When you are planning a street photography trip, consider the route that you are going to take

    prior to leaving your home or hotel. There are many beautiful and unique images to capture and

    taking the time to plan your route ahead of time is going to make it easier to get all of the shots

    you want.

    Now that you have been enlightened by these simple photographic tips, grab your camera and get

    out there. That "magic moment" is just a click away, and the world won't stop spinning. So let

    your imagination run free, then capture the results for posterity. Only you can tell the

    photographic story that unfolds from your own unique point of view.
