Don't be afraid of taking pictures. If you use the wrong settings, it's okay. Go ahead and take the picture anyway. If you want to photograph a person or pet, go up and ask if it's okay; create a release form to sign if it makes you more comfortable. Just go do it!

One of the best ways for you to learn about photography is to study examples of how to hold your camera and work your subject during photo shoots. In addition, you can talk to someone who has been in photography for a long time to gain valuable insight on your craft.

A great photography tip that can help you out is to be realistic about your work. You can't expect to be a creative genius at all times. Art has a lot of ups and downs and if you're expecting to always be on top, you'll become very discouraged.

Understand and anticipate the impact that wind will have on the photos that you take. For example, if you are planning on shooting flowers, avoid days where the wind is very active. When flowers and plants are stable, you will have the best chance to get the highest quality and resolution in your picture. In situations where you don't have a choice, such as weddings, have a contingency plan. Are there sheltered areas where the wind will have less impact?

Use a rather low ISO. A good ISO is around 200. Using this range of ISO will make your pictures look dark in certain situations, but you can easily change the contrast and light on a computer. If you use a higher ISO, you will get a lot of noise on your picture, which makes editing harder.

Get as close as you can to your subject. A subject too far in the distance loses too much detail for the shot to be very good. Make sure you can distinguish details on your subject that will attract your audience's attention.

Often digital cameras will have a flash option that responds to dim light, making the feature available automatically. Built in flashes are great for your average photographs, but for a more professional look, you may want to consider an external flash. To attach an external flash onto your camera, make sure it has a hot shoe on top. Then take it to a camera store, so they can help you pick out a flash that lines up with your camera.

Having good skills in photography does not involve a big secret. All it takes is learning through experience, and paying attention to results. If you have a digital camera, you'll probably end up deleting some of your pictures: you don't have to develop them all if you don't like them. Your skills will improve over time and you will benefit from scrutinizing your images and what you could have done to improve them.

Never stand below your subjects when photographing people or animals. There is nothing more unflattering than looking up a person's nose in a photograph, while the upward angle also distorts other facial features. In the very least, stand parallel to your subjects. If at all possible, position yourself at a slightly raised elevation to achieve the best results.

Now that you have been enlightened by these simple photographic tips, grab your camera and get out there. That "magic moment" is just a click away, and the world won't stop spinning. So let your imagination run free, then capture the results for posterity. Only you can tell the photographic story that unfolds from your own unique point of view.
