Whether you are just new to Photography, or just wanting to produce better photos to share on Facebook or Pinterest, then you are certain to enjoy these very informative digital camera and photography tips…
Digital cameras come in a variety of forms, from point-and-shoot pocket cameras to advanced digital SLRs. There is no right or wrong type, though a specific one may be best for you and your photography.
Simple point-and-shoot digital cameras can give surprising quality when they have the right lenses and sensors. Because they are totally automatic in focus and exposure, they just have to be pointed at a subject and clicked. They have limited capabilities for controlling the image, although even very inexpensive cameras often have white balance controls. Some are exceptionally compact, able to fit easily into a shirt pocket, making them ideal cameras to keep at hand so you won’t miss a great photo opportunity.
Advanced point-and-shoot cameras are similar in that they mostly rely on automatic controls; however, this group tends to add special features to make the cameras a little more flexible. Such features include exposure compensation, more white balance controls, limited manual settings, and more. Still relatively inexpensive, these cameras can be a good introduction to digital and are perfect for the families of serious photographers. (read more……)

The truth is that you can make great photos with a simple consumer point-and-shoot camera, or take lousy shots with the most expensive Nikon. It’s not the camera that makes beautiful images; it’s the photographer. With a little knowledge and a willingness to make an adjustment here and there, you can squeeze big time photos out of the smallest digicam.
To help you down the road to great image making, here are ten tips that will enable you shoot like a pro (without maxing out your credit card on all that expensive equipment).
Warm Up Those Tones
Have you ever noticed that your shots sometimes have a cool, clammy feel to them? If so, you’re not alone. The default white balance setting for digital cameras is
auto, which is fine for most snapshots, but tends to be a bit on the “cool” side.
When shooting outdoor portraits and sunny landscapes, try changing your white balance setting from
cloudy. That’s right, cloudy. Why? This adjustment is like putting a mild warming filter on your camera. It increases the reds and yellows resulting in richer, warmer pictures. (read more……..)

Know your angles
Lower your front shoulder slightly to create more dynamic angles and elongate your neck. Keep your body turned to the side and your face toward the camera. Lower your head to accentuate your eyes, or raise your chin to make your lips appear fuller.
Lighting and background
When shooting indoors, avoid overhead lights when possible. Ceiling light can cast shadows that distort images and add unwanted shading. Use floor lamps and soft lighting in order to get the perfect glow. Also, make sure your background is simple and uncluttered-you want the viewer looking at you, not what’s happening behind you.
The best way to appear relaxed in your profile picture is by smiling! You’ll invite positive feedback and exude confidence. Find additional tips to help you look good in photos. (read more……..)
