***Additional Photo Tips***

1.Get close...
As a general rule, the closer you get to the subject, the better your pictures will be. It eliminates distracting backgrounds and shows the subject clearly. Think about showing just enough of the scene to make the picture clear and interesting. Be sure to check your manual to learn the closest distance at which your camera takes sharp pictures. Many point-and-shoot cameras can`t focus closer than four feet from the subject.

2. Keep people busy...
Busy people give your pictures a feeling of liveliness and spontaneity, and their expressions will be more relaxed and natural

4. Use a simple background...
A simple background focuses attention on the subject and makes clear, strong pictures. Take control and move your subject or your camera to find a simple, uncluttered background.

5. Look for good lighting...
Adequate lighting is essential , but good lighting can make your pictures more interesting, colorful, dimensional, and flattering to the subject. Strong sunlight is only one of many types of good lighting. Some people are surprised to learn that cloudy, overcast days provide the best lighting for pictures of people. Bright sun makes people squint, and it throws harsh shadows. On overcast days, the light is soft and flattering to faces.

6. Keep your camera steady...
Sometimes good pictures are missed by overlooking the basics. Holding the camera steady is vital for sharp, clear pictures. When you push the shutter button, press it gently rather than jabbing it. Even slight camera movement can rob your pictures of sharpness. Steady your arm against a solid object or use a tripod if you have one.

7. Use your flash...
You can improve your pictures by taking full advantage of the flash built into most cameras. It provides extra light when you need it, especially indoors, and it freezes action for sharp pictures. Be sure to stay within the flash range (check your manual). This is the range of distance which will be properly exposed. A typical range is four to twelve feet. Using a flash outdoors will soften shadows and brighten colors.
