Digital Photography Tips - Shoot Great Photos With Your New Digital Camera

Digital photography makes it ultra-simple to take photos, however if you want to take superb images, you need to put thought into how you compose your photographs.

Let's look at the so-called “rules" of composition. You don't have to follow these rules, but it helps to know what they are. Even if you totally ignore them, you'll be amazed at how often your best shots follow these rules.

Composition's Rule Of Thirds - Divide Your Frame Into Three Areas

The best shot I've ever taken followed this rule exactly, and the shot happened completely by accident. I was holding my camera at dusk, when a boy and his dog ran towards me - they formed two thirds of the frame, and a car's backlights in the left of the frame made the final third.

Try it. Compose your frames according to the rule of thirds, and you'll be amazed at the interest your photos achieve with little effort.

Fill The Frame, So That The Eye Is Drawn Across The Image

Don't be afraid to fill the frame of your shot completely. For portraits, this means getting close to your subjects, and if you're shooting children, getting down on their level, or slightly below, so that you're looking up at them.

Take Real-Life Images - Take Photos In The Middle Of Daily Life

Staged photos usually aren't as good as candid images. When you're photographing people, get them actively engrossed in something that they enjoy, so that they become unaware of you after a few minutes. Although this takes longer to get your photos, it also means that you can capture the personality of your subjects.

Digital photography is a lot of fun, and it's inexpensive too. Don't be afraid to take lots of images - you can always delete them - and before you know it, you'll have some images which are frame-worthy and of which you're proud.
