Take the best shots with these 10 instructions

I would start this topic by telling you some of the technical details of photography. In photography, images are created by recording radiation on a radiation-sensitive medium, such as a photographic film or electronic image sensors. Trust me guys, you wouldn't like to read more technical details about photography because it's too complicated to understand and boring.It is based on pure scientific concepts. On March 14, 1839, Sir John Herschel introduced the word "photograph" to the world at a conference before the Royal Society in London. There is always a correct way to do something and one must learn that particular way to achieve better results. As Peter F. Drucker said, "efficiency is doing the right thing, efficiency is doing the right thing." Let's see the 10 tips: how to take better photos.
1. The first tip is about pets and young children. When taking a photo of anything that is small in height, first lean down at their level to hold the camera at eye level. In this way, a better image can be taken of small objects.
2. Whenever you are ready to take a photo of your subject, make sure you have taken the background into consideration as well. A complex or abstract background will blur the image of the subject and cannot be detected by the eye. It is recommended to use a plain background while taking a photo because this will put more emphasis on the subject and the image will be visible.
3. I take the opportunity here to clear up a misunderstanding by most of you. We often think that the camera flash is not necessary while taking snapshots in the sun. This is actually a misperception because even in the sun dark shadows appear under our eyes and nose or if the sun is directly behind us. To avoid this situation, we must use the camera flash to illuminate these shadows and dark areas and distinguish our subject well enough from the background.
4. The beauty of the image lies in how much closer you are to the subject. The closer the subject is to the camera, the better the image. The question arises' HOW? The answer to this is very simple because by getting closer to the subject you really remove the unnecessary or less attractive background from the image and all the focus is on the subject. Also, the image of the subject is more detailed and accurate. To get a closer picture, you can use the camera's "flower" mode or you can just zoom in and it will serve your purpose.
5. You can apply the same rule to all situations, as it is advisable to eat well in the morning while taking
on the contrary, it is suggested to eat less at night to avoid stomach aches or heartburn problems. Similarly, not all subjects look fascinating in a horizontal image. For some photos, you may find it more pleasant and attractive to take a vertical photo. It depends mainly on the structure and shape of the subject. For example, the Eiffel Tower or Minar-Pakistan will look better in a vertical image and not in a horizontal image. UPS! Imagine a horizontal image of the Eiffel Tower. It will look more like a bridge than a tower.
6. Do not lose focus on the subject while taking the picture. To do this, hold down the shutter button halfway and the camera will automatically adjust the
image for better focus. When you think the image is focused enough and you're ready to take the picture, press the shutter button all the way down. If you have a friend who cares about beauty, it is always good to take an unfocused photo. Can you guess why? Let me tell you why it is better to trust the claim that the baby looked beautiful but the image is not in focus than to take a bunch of photos of her to make her feel satisfied on a sunny day and sweat all day. KEEP IT A SECRET!
7. You should always know the flash range of your camera because if the subject is out of the flash range, a dark image will be formed. Usually the range is about four steps from the camera, but it depends from camera to camera. To do this, consult your manual guide.
8. The effect of sunlight should not be ignored when taking a photo. You must study the effects of light in order to take a good picture of the subject. In the case of people, be careful not to let the subject stand so that dark shadows fall on the face. It will not make the image look good.
9. To take a good photograph, you must act more than just a photo-taker. You should try to act as an image director and instruct your subject to rearrange itself so that it looks better in the camera viewfinder. You should consider different points of view to take a photo because it will dramatically improve the overall perception of your image.
10. The most basic, but most important tip for taking a good photo is that you should practice holding the camera still while taking a photo. If you happen to shake the camera for as long as you are pressing the shutter button, a blurry or vague picture will be taken and hardly anyone will recognize it.
