How to Take Amazing Pictures with Your Digital Camera

Are you familiar with the adage, "There is more to it than meets the eye?"

One of the primary ways we take in our surroundings is through visual perception. But over time, man has figured out methods to record and keep forever the things that are commonly appreciated for their beauty or other qualities.

Photographs have the power to open our senses to the past by showing us what actually occurred. Even more, it allows the soul to hope for a better tomorrow. 

The so-called digital single-lens reflex cameras are currently the industry leaders. These cutting-edge devices have the power to activate our brain's creative and emotional centers.

Despite being comparatively novel, most people prefer digital SLRs due to the ease with which they can be edited. The availability of such devices does not, however, ensure that every shot taken will be of the highest possible quality.

Here are some detailed suggestions for getting the most out of your digital cameras:


You can highlight a specific area by zooming in on it. This allows us to eliminate or at least diminish the significance of the unimportant.

The Thirds Rule

For the best shot of a moving subject, position your camera so that it catches them as they enter the tic-tac-toe frame from one of the diagonals.

Three-Dimensional Contours and Lines

Move five to ten feet to one side in order to catch a straight line at an oblique angle. 

Observation post

Take the photo from a low angle to make the subject stand out more. The object's importance can be diminished by increasing distance.


Select the key elements and place them so they enhance one another. A visually appealing item need not be perfectly symmetrical or balanced.


The window frames provide a perfect opportunity to frame an external vista. Doors and walls of a building can also be used to trap a moving individual.

Indoor Snapshots

To avoid distracting your subjects with the camera's flash, try taking candid photos outdoors during the day.

Modifications to the camera

The opening lets some light in. You'll need to master how to set this so that pictures are not overly bright or underexposed. 

By reducing the shutter speed, more light enters the camera, resulting in a more well-exposed picture. To avoid blurriness in your photographs, you must master the art of adjusting the exposure time.

The ISO Scale

ISO settings on digital cameras can go from 100 to 800. When the ISO is increased, the camera becomes more sensitive to light. Learn to use this feature in conjunction with the camera's aperture and shutter rates to achieve the best possible results.

Filters and Lenses

The lenses on some digital cameras are interchangeable, while others enable for attachment of secondary lenses. 

Different types of lenses include:

a macro lens lets you get up close and personal with small subjects like blossoms and insects.

b. a wide-angle lens, ideal for shooting monuments and expansive landscapes

Telephoto lenses, on the other hand, offer greater magnification and a safer way to approach potentially hazardous subjects.

On the other side, filters can be used to

blur the edges of portraits with delicate emotions to a) reduce the impact of the image and b) create a softer feel overall.

c) include light flares for theatrical effect; d) minimize glare for improved color reproduction and clarity. 

However, the following is a collection of software that can be used to make adjustments to the photographs you have already taken:

These include: Adobe Photoshop, Apple's iPhoto, Corel Paint Shop Pro, Google Picasa, LView, and many more!

Once you've mastered the fundamentals of digital photography, you'll see that "Even a simple aim and shoot camera" and "Creative ME" are the keys to taking stunning photographs.
