Pretty as a Picture

Now that cell phones are everywhere, everyone has become a photographer these days. It’s now so easy to snap a technically good image. Even so, there are still a few ways to make your photos better.

Angles can make or break your photo. For the safest angle, get on the same level as your subject. Be aware of the background. Busy backgrounds can look cluttered and take away from your main subject.

To avoid this distraction, try to find a solid wall or row of green bushes. Using a flash, even on a sunny day, can take away shadows on the face.

Consider using the background as part of the focus. If you have a blooming shrub, have the subjects stand on the side so you can take the photo with both people and flowers.
