Keep things as simple as possible when you are trying to capture a picture. You can take a stunning picture even if you do not adjust the color or motion settings. When taking a picture, try to take one at a medium distance and then take one closer. You may decide later on that a picture would have looked better had you taken it a little closer. Also, try to make sure your subject is toward the center of the picture. Keep in mind what your photo is intended for when you are taking it. For example, should it be shot horizontally or vertically? It is usually possible to use a photo editor to fix this after the fact, but it’s better if you get it right the first time. Don’t miss a single opportunity to take a photograph just because you don’t have the time, even if you do have your camera. When you see the perfect spot make a note describing the location and return at a more convenient time. Carry along a memo pad to jot down the location of places you want to come to again.
