Take Better Digital Photos

Take Better Digital PhotosClick Image To Visit SiteIf you’ve got a digital camera, like to take photos, but haven’t been coming up with the results you’d hoped for, I can help you.

You’re by no means alone in your frustration at not getting the same kind of bright, exciting images you see in magazines or on the walls of galleries, or in newspapers or displays in shops.

OK, you don’t really expect to get images as good as those produced by highly-paid professional photographers with heavy duty equipment, but you think you should be able to get better results than you have been getting.

"You need a better camera" (usually suggested by photoshop salesmen or someone with a more expensive camera than yours)

"You need to take a photography course at college" (OK if you’re young and with three years to spare, but actually relatively few successful professionals ever took this route)

As far as the college photographic course is concerned, many offer great value and produce excellent photographers, but let’s face it, we’re not talking about that kind of commitment of time and money here. What’s more, many of the most famous and respected photographers never took any kind of academic course, but rather learnt by experience or by being apprenticed to a more experienced professional.

The Photographic Da Vinci Code does not exist And lastly, although I would dearly like to pretend that I was a member of a secretive professional brother(and sister)hood possessing magical inside information that could turn anyone, Harry Potter-like, from an inept snapper into an expert pro photographer, I have to admit that after a couple of decades or more as a pro shooter I haven’t come across any such Da Vinci Code-like revelations (although there are plenty of freely available tips, hints and advice everywhere).

Although I’ve been a working professional photographer for many years, I believe in keeping things simple. Many so-called… Read more…
