Take Better Pictures With Your Digital Camera Today?s cameras make taking pictures a lot easier than the one?s of yesterday. There is always room for improvement, however. Use the following tips to help make your photos go from acceptable to great. 1. Always be aware of the background. You don?t want to find trees growing out of people?s heads or a passing vehicle to draw attention from your subject. Sometimes moving your subject just a couple steps to either side can make all the difference. 2. Use available light. If your digital camera has an option to turn the flash off and it?s light enough outside to read a book then use the available light and turn the flash off. In general camera flashes are too harsh for human skin and make all of us look pale. Indoors, where there isn?t enough daylight, place your subject by a window and use your fill flash feature. 3. Aim your camera slightly down at the person?s face. Also don?t shoot just face on to the person, try a little to the side, a three quarter view, so that you see more of their face. Remember camera higher looking down and a three quarter view, it will slim your subject. 4. Remember your focus. Get closer to your subject. Fill the frame with your subject and there will be no doubt as to what the picture is saying. 6. Never put your subject dead center. Put your just slightly off center; not a lot just a little. When you?re shooting groups of people, find the imaginary center line of your group and put that line just a bit off center in your view through your lens or screen. Following these tips won?t turn you into an award-winning photographer today, but you will be on your way to better, more powerful photographs that others will comment on for years to come.

Do your homework and know what you are looking for, then stick with the decision. You are the best judge of what you need, trust yourself.
