Point and shoot, and I have a great eye!
Myth #5
The key to photography is...
moments
.
The
best
way to zoom in is to use your
feet
. Get close.
Principle 1
Un-clutter the picture. Zoom in.
Principle 2
The rule of thirds.
Principle 3
Use of frames, leading lines, diagonals
Principle 4
Perspective
A good photograph has a
subject
and a

context
.
Remove any clutter
that detracts from your message.
Get closer, zoom in, crop tightly as possible.
The more you move the subject away from the center,
the more relevance you give to the context.
Create impact by using frames or lines that lead
the viewer's eye into and around the subject.

Why take pictures?
To tell a story.
Share information.
Change your heart & mind.
Embrace the world as you see it.
Light
helps to create a particular mood within the photograph and can bring emphasis to key elements within a frame. It can also help create depth and textures in an image by creating a mix of highlights and shadows.
Evoking emotions is important in creating strong images and color is one of our primary tools to do this.
Putting together objects in your frame in such a way as to emphasize the parts you want to and make them stand out in a particular way.
Perspective adds interest to a photo by giving viewers a look on something they haven't seen before.
What's
new
is
interesting.
Low angle shot
Leading lines
Diagonals
Framing
High angle shot
The distance between you and the subject will affect the feeling and overall impact of the image.
Wide/long angle shot
to show the environment.
Close up shot
for an intimate feel, or highlight a particular action or detail.
Mid shot
shows some part of the subject in more detail, whilst still showing enough for the audience to feel as if they were looking at the whole subject.
As Ansel Adams used to say,

There is nothing worse than a brilliant image of a fuzzy concept.

A photo can convey
emotion, mood, narrative, ideas and messages.
These are the elements that make a statement and tell a story.
Other Elements you need to know...
Balance
Texture
Patterns
Repetition
