10 How to Take a Great Photo! ROGER DARLINGTON

11 Good Composition Take your time Look at the scene from several angles Be patient!

12 Be an artist not a surgeon! Include body parts Arms, legs, top of head Unless you’re carefully excluding Exclude extra background Trees, signs, furniture shouldn’t grow out of someone’s head Unless carefully including the elements /

13 Focus, focus, focus! Clear, not fuzzy Cameras with auto settings will often focus in other places Check focus before clicking the shutter release button Up or down is better than knees up Full body Head and shoulders

14

15 Use the rule of thirds! Draw an imaginary tic-tac-toe board Action should take place at the crosses and on the lines Natural lines should follow divided lines Subject should be looking into our space not out of the shot (unless you carefully plan)

18 Consider your vantage point. Unique perspective makes a more interesting photo Try… Looking up Looking down Straight-on, frame well Head and shoulder shot—get close Full body shot—include just enough background

19 Extra tips… Lines should be straight Unless you’re trying to be exotic Horizon line should be horizontal Verticals should be vertical (unless looking up, which changes perspective Consider taking 2-3 shots quickly People often look “staged” in the first More natural/relaxed in later ones (element of surprise)

20 Things to think about...
