Keep things as simple as possible when you are trying to capture a picture. When photographing a specific event, set your camera’s features on the appropriate settings ahead of time.
Take shots of people you see in your day. Do not take photographs of people without their consent. Pictures like these help you to find more vivid memories when you look back, even if at the time the people seemed unremarkable. When selecting people to photograph, always look for those dressed casually and sporting candid expressions.
Look for the perfect balance of aperture, ISO and shutter speed. It is those three elements which make up the exposure of the shot. Overexposure or underexposure are usually considered to be negatives, unless you are going for a very particular feel to the image. Experimentation with these features and how they work together will lead you to the perfect combination.
If you are shooting photographs in a florescent light setting, make sure that you adjust your camera’s white balance settings appropriately. You may need to compensate for red tones to avoid the cooler tones of the subjects in your photos when taking pictures in fluorescent lighting, which usually produces greenish and bluish light.
