1. Follow the Rule of Thirds
Imagine the scene you’re capturing to be framed in a rectangular shape that is divided into nine equal parts by two horizontal lines and two vertical lines. Now create more drama or depth by putting your subject at any of the points where the lines meet. The ideal composition of your picture can also be achieved by moving in closer to the subject and taking out the unnecessary elements. Lastly, keep the horizon aligned properly when taking landscape photos.
2. Pay attention to lighting
The amount of lighting available can help you get the effect you’re hoping for. Remember that the direction of the light is an important factor when you take your picture. Bring out a soft glow by making use of indirect light. For wonderful outdoor scenes, make sure that you’re standing behind the sun so that the subject is facing the source of light.
3. Keep snapping!
Later on, you can browse through your shots to find that special photo that catches your eye
4. Use the right shutter speed
Play around with the speed settings of your camera’s shutter to be able to capture images in their dynamic form. Generally speaking, moving objects must be captured by a fast shutter speed, unless you deliberately want a blur.
5. Experiment with angles
A view of a house or room can become more interesting when shot from a different angle other than eye level. Try taking pictures from ground level, or climb up a chair for a different perspective. Or try slanting your camera from 10 to 45 degrees. Unless you’re taking a landscape picture, a little slant tends to add dynamism to your images.
