Get closer

Try a new angle

Consider using a different angle. Get a little creative. Get down on the ground and look at your subject from a different perspective.Consider composition For an image to be successful and meaningful, it needs to be composed correctly. Do whatever you can to guide the gaze of the viewer toward your subject. And don't be afraid to experiment! If your subject isn't in the best position, have them move around until you achieve the best composition.

Take more pictures

Most of us are frugal when it comes to taking pictures. But with a digital camera, you can simply delete the pictures you don't like, so snap away! Fill the entire picture card with one subject. You are sure to find a few pictures that will thrill you. Using these insightful tips will help you create quality portraits of your family and friends.
