Clever Camera Tricks for Better Photos

Photography can be a great way to capture your favorite memories, but it gets even better when you actually can shoot photos like a pro. By following some of these clever camera tips, you can be sure to make your family photos masterpieces within your favorite Photo Albums.

Camera

Read the Manual
It’s really that simple. Your camera manual is the first place to start to learn how to take good pictures. Know how your camera settings work and what settings work best in a certain environment. Shooting on the Auto mode is fine if you’re not camera savvy, though you can notice a big difference in quality once you start to play with the features.

Change Your Orientation
Instead of shooting every photo horizontally, instead opt to take some vertical or tilted shots. These can better capture certain scenes and made for easy to frame, easy to display shots.

Move From the Middle
You can instantly make any photo interesting by not placing your subject in the center of your viewfinder. Instead, imagine there is a tic-tac-toe board on your screen. Now move the object to one of the intersection points on your imaginary grid, lock the focus, then shoot! You’ll get an interesting picture that’s composed well without the hassle.

Gift an Athlete in Your Life

With baseball season already in full swing and other sports already gearing up, it’s important to remember that every athlete needs a little bit of support and encouragement. To gift someone you care about that’s involved in a sport, consider creating an Athletic Scrapbook to honor their achievements.

Filled with photos of their best plays, first games, or even that crossing of the finish line, this scrapbook can be a thoughtful way to show your affection and appreciation for the athlete in your life. In addition to filling it with great pictures of athletic accomplishments, you can also insert personal notes to the athlete, quotations from other famous athletes about the thrill of the game, or certificates and ribbons from previous competitions. It’s all about making this scrapbook a unique gift to someone special. Let StorePhotos.com give you the tools you need to get started.
