First, start with Quality Images

When snapping your pics, think about these four elements that will guarantee you have a quality image to start with:

  1. Framing and Composition  – break up your “canvas” into thirds rather than dead center, for more visual interest.
  2. Lighting – of course you’re not going to go around with an extra light when you’re snapping pics, but you do want to be aware of the lighting – nothing backlit, or too bright. Soft lighting on the primary part of the subject is best.
  3. Background – how many times have you seen pics with random people in the background (or those bathroom selfies can really show a lot!) Before you snap, look around for any other distractions from your subject.
  4. Camera Angles – getting creative with your angles is one of the easiest way to snap a pic that stands out. Closeups are great. Really far away is cool. From above, from below. You name it! Angles are awesome.

Now, have fun with your pics!

Sure, now that you know how to take awesome photos, you may not want to fancify them, but we think to get it that little extra oomph, you’ll want to kick things up a notch.
