Taking Better Pictures: Getting More from Your Subject

First of a two part series on Taking Better Pictures: Getting More From Your Subject*.

If you use a point and shoot camera or use your DSLR always on auto, you should know these foundations to better picture taking.

Every time I shoot public events I see people, using their digital camera, that would benefit from just a few minor changes to get a far better picture. I've compiled these into a tour of essential foundations. So if you just got a camera or you have been shooting a while and want to review, here it is...

Practical tips on composition, posing, and lighting - foundations for anyone who simply wants to take better pictures of people.

Here's an overview:

Best Angles – what direction to shoot from
•Background – positioning your subject
•Posing – One, Two, Three...More
•Flash – Daytime use guidelines
•Motion – desired and undesired
•Opportunities – They’re everywhere
