Digital Photography 101 An introduction to taking AWESOME pictures 1. Inspiration Wow! 3. Composition look for natural frames in your environment The Rule of Thirds You need something to inspire you to take a picture! Framing negative space (or empty space) in a photograph is a great way to simplify your image and draw attention to a certain point in your picture Spacing Portraits Get up close Experiment with angles Shoot candidly capture dynamic moments Please AVOID this... instead, try these tips... Squeeze together! 2. Lighting be aware of where the light falls on the object or person you are photographing From the Greek words phos ("light") and graphis ("stylus" or "paintbrush"), "photography" literally means "drawing with light" filling up the frame is also a very effective use of space as well. It can add impact to the object or person you are taking a picture of. not enough light will cause dark and/or blurry photos too much light can make a picture look over exposed and harsh the key is BALANCE watch this... I'm ready to take (awesome) pictures! some general pointers... Try to keep your hands/arms and camera steady - prop your camera on a tripod, a table, the ground or anything that's stable

- stabilize your hands/arms by propping it on a table, rock, chair, the ground or anything that's sturdy Don't forget to FOCUS your shot before you take it. - for your iDevices or touch devices, touch the area on the screen you want it to focus to then touch the shutter button - for point and shoot cameras or DSLRs, press and hold the shutter button down half way to focus your shot When it's focused, then push the shutter button the rest of the way down to take your picture. 1/2 and hold to focus push the rest of the way to shoot These tips also work with still life (fruit, toys, flowers, etc.), not just people! So experiment and have fun!!
