Better digital photos

leave a comment »

cameraWith more and more reporters taking photos, expert photography tips are always welcome. Here is a nice Ten Ways to Make Your Photos Better, from Colin Mulvany at the Spokesman-Review and his Mastering Multimedia blog.

Two of my favorites from Colin’s list:

Get closer. The biggest mistake photographer’s make is that they don’t get close enough to their subjects. The old  Robert Capa saying: “If your photos aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.”

Anticipation/Seeing. Look for the “magic moment.” Be ready to push the shutter before the moment happens. Pre-visualize.  Ask yourself “what could happen” Watch body language and facial expressions.
