How to Click Better Photos?

By: Roger Smiths

It is said practice makes a man perfect for a perfect shot one needs a lot of practice. To take a better photo many factors are kept in mind, some of them are:

- Firstly, one needs to be very clear about the camera or the equipment that is being used. Its control, switch, button, and menu, to on/off flash, its resolution, zoom in/zoom out, shutter button, etc; one needs to be very clear about the features and functioning of the device. If possible read the manual properly.

- Secondly, lighting plays an important part. So be very careful but lighting and shadows. Natural light is best for taking photographs, but if natural light is not available use flash where ever possible. A flash is very useful for filling in shadows; to eliminate the "raccoon eye" effect in bright midday light. A flash can do wonders to picture if used properly.

- Thirdly, compose your shot thoughtfully. Before clicking the shot be very clear what you want to click and what needs to be depicted by the photo. Try not to let any horizon or other lines "cut the picture in half. Get rid of distracting backgrounds and clutter. Move the focus from these clusters to somewhere near that does not adds them to the photo. Don't be afraid to get closer to your subject. Magnify the subject to get a clear and detailed closer look.

- Fourthly, try an interesting angle. Pick an angle that shows maximum color and minimum shadow. An uncommon angle makes for a more interesting shot. Poor focus ruins the photograph. Try to focus just on the thing you want to click with leaving rest unfocused. Use the automatic focus of your camera, automatic focus usually does a far better job of focusing than you can.

- Lastly, take a no of shots for a single pose. Never be afraid to click multiple shots for a single pose. These shots help you choose the best out of the entire click. Sometimes a picture might be clicked good but might have a deflect, so it is the best option to click multiple and then combine them to get a final best shot.

Donít be afraid if you donít get good shots, as even a professional photographer was once the same as you are. The key point is just to have confidence in your skills and practice till you get the right shot.
