Taking Better Pictures

(Image from Addicted to Life)
People say “Pictures can capture moment in time”. Those same people also claim “A pictures is worth thousand words”. But is picture taken with poor quality actually capture the moment or it’s worth thousand words? The answer is no.

There are various ways to take picture. The three basic shots each journalist should know how to take are: mug, still, and news. For these basic shots, here are some things to keep in mind while taking a picture:
•Hold the camera correctly
•Get into position early
•Take several shots
Fill the frame
Rule of thirds
•Different angels
•Watch for the unexpected

Now that we have better understanding on how to set up for that perfect shot, all you have to do is find it?

Below this blog are some photo's I have taken using these guidelines.
