A) Background

Try to escape the cliché of putting the subject always in the middle of the photo. Desclocar the main object of the image can make all the difference to make it more interesting.

Mentally divide the viewfinder into three columns and three rows, as in a pound. The intersections of the lines are the most interessenantes of your photo. The lines also show you the highlights, to put the eyes of a person or the horizon, for example.

2) Flash unnecessary
One of the most complicated things about photography is learning to use the flash correctly. Use the flash on top can make the photo all clear, and far away, dark.

Remember that the flash has a limited range, normally three to five feet, sometimes a little more. There's no point in leaving the flash on a picture where the focus is an object 30 meters.

A good example of bad use of Flash are shows. In general, it is not necessary in this case some extra light. The light of the stage is more than enough for your photo. Using flash will only illuminate the minds of those who are in front of you doing the rest disappear.

3) Flash required
A dark environment is not the only place where flash is a necessary accessory. In a backlit picture, for example, the flash can be used as fill.

When you take a picture of someone with a light source in the background, like the sun, for example, you may notice that the sun is sparkling clean and only the silhouette of the person will appear. In this case the flash will address the lack of light, leaving both visible.

4) Beware of the fund
Be very careful when selecting the location where you will take a picture. The choice of what appears in the background is so important when it comes to the fore.

Vibrant colors, lines and other objects can interfere with or distract from the focus. An error funny, but very common, is take a picture of a person in front of a tree where the branches appear to form horns on his head.

5) Pictures

Come on. When it comes to a person, what you want to show is, alas, the person. Do not be afraid to get close. If you want you can even cut some of the top of the head. At this distance it is possible to notice details such as freckles and eyelashes. What can not happen is that pile of nothing in the back and a little guy in the middle.

6) Look into the eyes
Take pictures at eye level of the person. To take a picture of a child kneel, sit, throw on the floor. Do what is necessary to get at it.

7) Vertical Photos
Many issues require a vertical photo. If the focus has more vertical lines, like a lighthouse or a ladder, turn the camera.

8) Enjoy the Light
There is no light more beautiful than natural sunlight. Whenever you can, enjoy it. Position yourself so as to leave the light source at the back, taking advantage of the lighting. It's amazing how much difference can a simple step to the side.

The diffuse light of a cloudy day is excellent to enhance color and softened contours, and is great to get retro.

It takes very careful when using the flash. His light, and strong, has a different color to the environment. A hard light will make wrinkles and flaws more apparent. Have you noticed how it always gets ugly in 3x4 photo? Here is the answer.

9) Color

Most digital cameras come with color control or white balance. This control causes the color white is really white under a given light source. But the pre-selected settings of the camera are not always the most suitable for those who want fidelity.

The setting for sunny days, usually indicated by a small sun, gives a more yellowish tone to the photos. This tone gives a sense of warmth and affection, making the picture more interesting in some respects.

Try enough control to set the color that best suits what you want.

10) Try

There is no better than this hint: try. The secret of photography is on trial and error. Read it cover to cover your camera's manual to learn all she can, and try every possible configuration.

Photography is very subjective, there are no rules. The most important thing is to learn to master the light and your camera, then do what you want
