How To Take Amazing Photos

You do not need a super expensive camera or loads of filters to take awesome pictures.


  1. Use light, color, size, shape and other elements to add interest and contrast to the photos 
  2. Find different angles. Take a picture from above or from the ground. Move really close up or back up far away. Image result for macro photography
  3. Take a small camera everywhere you go.
  4. Take a bunch of pictures and don’t look at them until later. If you take 100 shots one of them has to be good, but if you only take one shot……
  5. Go places. You won’t find much inspiration in places you frequently go
  6. Look with your eyes first. Make a habit of noticing the things that would make a good picture Image result for incredible pictures
  7. Practice everyday                                                                                                                Image result for person holding a camera
