Good job! However, there is so much information that you may not have a clue where or how to start. Follow this easy, sensible advice to improve your pictures quickly.
Move in closer to your subject to take a better picture. If you move close to your subject, you can frame it more effectively, while avoiding distractions around it. When you are photographing people, this makes it easier to hone in on facial expressions, as well. This ability is important for anyone who wants to take portrait shots. By being too far away from your subject, you often miss the minuscule details that can make a picture truly great.
Even though the foreground of a photograph is what people see, a lot of people that take photographs focus on only the background in a picture of a landscape. Compose the frame in such a way as to make the foreground as important to the image as the background is to create a truly striking photo.
Photography must be enjoyable. Photography captures a moment in time for you and others, should you decide to share your work. If you allow yourself to have fun and experiment during the learning process, you are more likely to continue actively learning new techniques.
If you like to buy souvenirs when you travel, take photographs of them. Take photos of the shop where you made the purchase, or snap the item on its own with an interesting backdrop. After returning home, your pictures and your souvenirs together will help tell a more memorable, engaging story.
You should now have a clue as to what you need to do to improve your photography skills. Return to this advice if you ever feel you need a refresher course. Patience and persistence is key. With practice you will be taking great photos for your family to enjoy for generations.
