Don’t dilly-dally when taking your photographs. If you take too long, your subject could move, run away or something could change that could ruin your photo. The faster the shutter on your camera, the better.
Choose carefully what will show in your photograph. Imagine a window through which you see only a selected portion of the subject. Avoid trying to get too many things within the frame. If you want a better impression of a subject, take as many photos as you can.
Many people think bright sun makes for great photographic conditions. But, direct sunlight actually ruins many would-be great shots. Too much sunlight causes pronounced shadows and glare, differences in saturation in different parts of the photo, and can make it hard for human subjects to keep their eyes open. If possible, try to choose late evening or early morning light when taking pictures outdoors.
Always be careful when packing your equipment for a trip. Take cleaning equipment and back-up batteries, as well as all the lenses you expect to make use of. Don’t take 50 lenses when five will do, as this could bog you down when trying to carry your camera equipment from place to place.
Take photographs of insignificant items while you are travelling to, and visiting, your destination. Once you get home you will appreciate all the photos you have taken and relive the journey in your mind. Every time something strikes your fancy, pull out your camera and photograph it.
Invest in a memory card with advanced ability to record a large number of images, so that you will not be limited in the quantity of shots you can take at any given time. The larger your memory card, the more pictures you can take without having to swap to another card. You will also be able to shoot RAW photos when you have a big memory card, which will allow you to edit them the most in post-production.
