3 tips for taking the perfect photo:

  1. Find the light. If shooting outdoors try to take pictures in the two to three hours before sunset or two to three hours after sunrise, during what is referred to as “golden hour.” Try not to take the picture with the sun behind you. Pay attention to where the light is coming from and use it to your advantage.
  2. Change your perspective. Squat or get down on your knees or lay on the ground to get a different perspective. Getting low can yield great results, especially when photographing people.
  3. Try to avoid blur. To do this hold your camera or phone steady or use a small tripod. Make sure the subject and or the image has the appropriate amount of light to avoid blur.
