Taking photos is not hard at all. The problem, however, is getting shots that are clear, sharp, and nicely focused. This article is going to focus on how to get your photos exactly like that.
The sharpness of your shot is going to be the most important part of your pictures quality. A shot that is not sharp will look lesser quality than one that is sharp. Even if the sharper photo is less mega pixels, it will still look better. Knowing how to take sharp shots is going to help you yield the most out of your equipment.
The most important part of getting a sharp shot is to be sure you know how to focus right. Most people focus using the auto focus mode. This is fine for simple shots without depth, but most shots have lots of depth and require manual focusing. Focusing manually will give you total control over your shot.
At first, manual focus may be hard. But when you get good at it, all your shots will be focused right.
Another reason photos aren't as sharp as possible is because of your shutter speed. The slower shutter means that your camera can move during the exposure. If this happens, you will get blur in your shot. To prevent this and have sharp pictures all times, be sure to set the shutter right and always use a tripod.
A tripod can be very annoying to carry around. It is big and hard to take when out in the wilderness. However, it is worth it.
