Just for fun, I went to the local dog off leash park today and took my camera. Thinking about the position of the sun, I found a spot and settled in on what I hoped was some clean grass to take photos of whatever dogs wandered by me. I soon figured out that many of the dogs would be in an area where my photos would include the fence and parking lot as the background.
Even a cute dog like this needs a better background!
When you start to take photos from a certain spot, remember to stop after a few photos and notice things in your photos that you missed in your initial excitement of capturing a cute dog trotting across the grass. This can save you from going home with photos with a fence and cars in the background and you will have more photos with a rail fence and sky or grass and trees in the background. Sometimes you can stay in the same spot and just turn right or left to locate a much better background for your subject.
My first blog post is about a presentation I gave on photography last weekend. It is titled "How to Take Better Photos in Auto Mode." Can you guess the two things which can make your photos wall-worthy?
First, make sure you are in the auto mode that matches your situation. Don't use the indoors/party mode when you are taking photos of fireworks!
Second, learn the basic rules of composition and try to use them. Your friends and family will be impressed with your photos.
Thank you to photographer who shared this photo with me. Great that it captured both flags also.
Keep checking back for information about my photos and more tips to help improve your own photos.
