These days, with virtually everyone walking around with a camera in their pocket, you almost never miss an opportunity to take a great picture. But have you ever taken a picture of something that looked absolutely stunning in person, only to be let down by a flat, lifeless image that looks like it was taken by kangaroo riding a roller coaster? Well, fear not, if you want to improve your picture taking abilities and be the one all your friends hand their cameras to on vacation, all you need to do is follow these ten tricks for taking better photos.
10. Keep Things Simple
One issue new photographers are often faced with is trying to incorporate all the trappings with each and every photograph. This approach often overcomplicates things because there is just too much going on in the frame which makes it difficult to produce a balanced composition and is often distracting to viewers. Remember, all you really need to make a good photo is one interesting subject. It’s all right if the majority of the frame is filled with empty space because that will just make your subject stand out more.
