Photo Tips Monday

Dave Berry, Director of the Photography Department at Computer School for Seniors will be sharing his insightful Photo Tips with you every Monday for Capture the Moment Mondays.




4 Tips To Better Photography

As you are reading this post, Patti and I are on a Cruise to the Caribbean on the beautiful Caribbean Princess. We will be visiting the ports of San Juan, Puerto Rico, Antigua, Barbados,Tortola and St.Thomas in the Virgin Islands. I can't wait to share my pictures with all of you in my future blog posts. Before we sail away I would like to share with you four photography tips I share with friends when asked...

These may seem basic but I always follow the Berry photo plan before I go out shooting..

1.) Always look at the scene without the camera. Look for interesting things around you, fill the scene in your mind and than put it together. Visualize what you want the picture to say before you press the shutter.

2.) Put yourself in a position to take great shots. Don't be afraid to move around. Look what's behind you. Hit the streets and hit the shutter a lot.

3.) Don't be afraid to make mistakes---that is the beauty of Digital Photography. Experiment with your photography because you can make instant corrections while you are still shooting. Adjust shutter speeds and apertures to change the photo you are taking. Remember, If you don't like it delete and shoot another one.

4.) Take alot of Pictures----this is the most under discussed thing in Photography. Digital Camera's make it all worth while. There is no reason for not taking alot of pictures and when you go home you can delete the ones you don't like.

Until next week thanks for dropping by--Meanwhile go out and have FUN WITH YOUR CAMERA !!!!!!!!!

Bon Voyage !!!!!!!!!

Wonderful post!That is what I love about using digital cameras. You can always take several shots and delete the ones you didnt like for later. or you can shoot-view the photo-delete, when you use these big cameras.
