Framing is essential to photography composition. Zoom in on the focal point; this will help to take attention away from distractions in the surrounding area. This can keep your pictures from feeling cluttered, busy, and distracting to the eye.

Experiment a bit with the feature that allows you to adjust levels of whiteness. When you are taking photos inside, many times your pictures will end up looking a little yellow from the light bulbs. Instead of augmenting the light in the room, adjust the camera’s white balance for a different atmosphere. This should, definitely, give a more professional appearance to your pictures.

When shooting people, make sure to emphasize the foreground by blurring the background a little. If the background is just as in focus as the subject, it takes the eye away from where you the viewer should be looking. This is most easily accomplished by moving your subject further away from the backdrop.

It is important to have a sufficient memory to hold lots of pictures; the best way to get good photos is to take a large number of them. A 16 gigabyte memory card will store all of your photos without the necessity of changing memory cards during a photo shoot. Another advantage of a large memory card is you can shoot in RAW format, which allows the most flexibility during post-production.

When photographing your subject, try to get as close as you can. Nothing is worse than viewing a photo of a subject that is too far away to see any clear details or colors. Do everything you can to make sure your subject stands out and is seen clearly. Moving around gives you an opportunity to frame the perfect shot. Try taking pictures of the subject from below, above, to the left and to the right.
