5 Tips For Taking Better Pictures
I like this advice from Insight Vacations. The five suggestions they offer below are not about 'how' to take photographs, they assume you know that. Rather these are bits of knowledge designed to make your good photos 'much better.' They say ...

You don't need an expensive camera to get the perfect picture. Here are our tips to help you go home with photos to impress!

With free apps like Instagram and Snapseed for your mobile phone, you can edit, filter, crop and post your photos at any time.

For mouth-watering food snaps, take a wide shot to show napkins, utensils or even the menu to create more action in the shot.

5 tips for better picturesTry taking photos through a different perspective like through a door frame or pathway. Or even use objects and people around you to add character.

Keep shooting after the sun has set - you'll see even more beautiful colours and patterns in the sky. This time is referred to by photographers as 'the magic hour.'

Not all photos need flash. Turn off the automatic setting to avoid harsh lighting in your photos.

EDITOR'S NOTE: My teenage grandson and I followed these five tips when we travelled together to Iceland with Insight Vacations. The overall trip was fantastic and the opportunities to capture what Mother Nature has created were endless. (1) Click here for grandma's photography collection of the trip. (2) Click here for a look at her 16 year old photographer's interpretation of Iceland. How were our photos? You be the judge.
