1-Middle click: A common mistake of many people is to press the shutter button of the photos at once. This often generates pictures out of focus, without sharpness or definition. To solve this problem, in time to make the picture press the shutter button only halfway. Then, you usually hear a beep or a light indicating that the camera focused on the subject. Continue pressing the button completely and ready! That way your pictures will be sharp and the subject will have been focused, avoiding losing a good moment with blurry photos and without definition.

2-framework: Avoid taking pictures every time the same way, varies. Take pictures in horizontal and vertical and no pictures always centralized. A good rule of thumb that assists in the issue of framing is the rule of thirds.Imagine that in the theme you are trying for a pound. In this game, the lines are on four points, and the ideal is to put the main object of the picture in one of those points of intersection. Some machines even offer the feature to show the lines, for ease of framing.

In this image, the main point of interest is centered.

In the second example, we use the rule of thirds. So you run away from the usual and let your most original photography. For this search to use the points where the lines meet.

3-Light: It is always recommended to observe where the Sun (or artificial light) is at the time of your photo. Make pictures in favor of sunlight, to prevent a person’s face appears with shadow. The best light for photography is a natural light, the Sun, but if there is no way and you need to take a photo against the light, use the flash. For photographs where you just want to get the silhouette of a person, for example, try turning off the flash and change the value of EV, exposure compensation (higher values whiten the reason and lower values darken) If your machine rely on this feature.

4-Macro: The macro is a feature that exists in most cameras. She is often represented by a flower and serves to do close up, take pictures up close. A good time to use it is when you want to take pictures of flowers. Activate this function and do not forget to turn it off when the subject is a distant landscape.

5-scenes: As well as the macro, digital cameras have different types of scene, which fall in different situations.Look for so that more fits your theme in time to make a picture. Whether it’s a landscape, look for the landscape mode and the pictures come out with more vibrant colors, if you want to take a picture of an object at speed, look for the manner in which the shutter speed is faster, and so on. This setting is automatic and help for anyone who is a lay and wants to capture better pictures and better adapted to each scene being photographed.

6-Photographing people: If the idea is to take a picture of a person, why don’t you bring the camera? Focus and has as objective the eyes, which make up a very significant area. Look also at the same time who is being photographed.

7-Use the maximum resolution of the camera: Many people do not know what are megapixels. They are the smallest unit of a digital image, colors or light that the camera sensor can capture. So if you take pictures at a low value of megapixels and intends to reveal a large size, she will come out with a bad quality and you may notice the pixels. If you take pictures in a high quality, the chance that occur will be much smaller.

8-night shots: When the sunlight cannot lend a hand in time to illuminate your subject, try increasing the ISO. He is one of the important variants for photographers and relates to the sensitivity of the sensor. The higher the ISO, the higher the sensitivity, clearer pictures and more graininess – just using the night. The lower the ISO, the lower the sensitivity and less granulation generation, perfect setting for sunny days.

9-points of interest: Every trip ends up having a picture of a person in front of a tourist spot. This is a problem in the case of large motifs, such as the immense façade of a church or a tower. The tip in this case is to not let the photographed near the tourist spot, but at an average distance of you, so that it will appear larger in the image.That goes even for those famous fun pictures with the person like a giant or having the Eiffel Tower ma Palm!

10-Beach and Snow: Adverse situations require special attention with the photographs. You must change the scene in these situations in order to balance the amount of light that the camera captures, it’s pretty big because of the reflection. If you’re on the beach, use the beach mode and the color of the sky, for example, will come out more blue. It is still important to be careful with the water and the wind bring with sand and may damage your equipment. In the snow, it’s good to remember that the battery can last less, so make sure you leave the House with enough charge for pictures.

11-Read the manual: It seems unimportant but something that everyone should do when buying a camera is carefully read by your manual. He gives tips on using specific to your camera model and teaches the operation of its functions. Also look for videos or stories on the internet who already has a template as your or similar.
