What makes a good photograph?
- An interesting subject - How the subject is framed

- Use of lighting - Capturing the moment

- Focus of the subject - Resolution/overall quality
An Interesting Subject
Humans love humans - powerful photographs are often simple photographs of interesting faces.
Unusual or eye-catching environments or places.

From a programatic standpoint - capturing the stories of our clients.
Framing and Composition
Be conscious of the whole scene.
The subject does not necessarily have to be in the center of the photo

Thoughtful consideration of how to position the subject within it's surroundings
Horizon lines

Portrait composition
Use of light/shadows/illumination
When shooting indoors, use natural light so the subject is illuminated and NOT lit from behind
Outside is best! If shooting inside, move people or yourself to well-lit areas. Avoid using flash.
Capturing the moment
A picture paints a thousand words
Foresight - understanding your surroundings and anticipating when something interesting might happen.
Move around to frame the picture
Don't be afraid to take a few photographs, but don't take 100 photographs of the same scene
Clarity and Focus
Blurry = la di'ak!
Half-way depress (allow camera to focus on subject)
Leave camera on auto unless confident with manual functions
Keep hands steady
Now based on what you have learned.....

Look at some of the photographs on the wall and consider how you would improve them.
Responsible camera care
Ensure lens is clean (keep lens cap on when not in use

Keep battery charged

Carry camera and equipment in an appropriately padded bag

Do not delete photos until they are transferred and saved on the share drive!
