Default Photo tips

I went to a party last night and got speaking to someone how takes photos for a living (Magazines and art gallerys) and she told us a few tips on how to get a better picture.
One was when you take a close up portrait photo,get the people to close their eyes,count to 3 ,they open their eyes and you take the picture.This gives you a natrual ,relaxed look and makes the eyes come alive.

She also said if you are taking a picture of say a tree with a light blue background ,the tree will come out too dark.So point the camera at something a little darker,hold the button down,allow it to set itself up and then repoint it at the subect and then press the button down all the way and the picture will come out a much better colour.

She did tell us loads more but the drinks were flowing and it was all going abit over my head.

Hope this makes some sense and I am not teaching to suck eggs.Try them they do seem to work.

If you can leave black marks from the time you exit a corner till the time you brake for the next turn, then you have enough horsepower

The light tip is good for sunsets. If you set the camera on the sunset. it will wash out all the colour. Point at something darker first will give much better colour.

The best photo tip to make the good photo is depends on your back ground wall paper and the view where you are taking the photo but the best view is natural and some greenery on the back side and this is make to your photo best and you should hold the camera on a stand or in your hands by making the best focus ...........
