If you want to take pictures like a pro, here are some things you need to know:
1. The most important thing about photography is lighting. If you don’t have good lighting, you can’t take great pictures.
2. You don’t need fancy or expensive equipment to get great photos. All you need is your eyes and your brain.
3. The second most important thing is composition. Good composition makes a photo look better, even if the subject and light aren’t perfect.
4. A good photograph needs a point of interest, something to make the viewer look at it long enough to see whether there’s anything else going on in the picture (there probably is).
5. The most interesting photographs contain some tension between the way things actually look and the way we expect them to look, or between different ways we could imagine them looking.
6. If you understand what makes a good picture, you will be able to take one without being a pro with expensive equipment; if you don’t understand what makes a good picture, no amount of equipment will help you.
Many of the best photos are taken by people who are just taking pictures to capture a memory. These pictures often capture the spirit of the moment that is hard to convey in words or video.
There are some simple things you can do to make your pictures better, whether you have a fancy camera or not.
The first thing you can do is to slow down and enjoy the moment. Next time you’re at a party, try taking a few seconds before snapping a picture to compose it. You’ll be amazed at how much better your pictures will turn out. If you’re at an event like a sports game, just take your time and wait for a good shot instead of taking several photos in quick succession.
The next thing you can do is lighten up. If you’re using flash, try using it less frequently. Your pictures will look better if they aren’t so bright. Don’t forget that you can use natural light as well, just avoid direct sunlight whenever possible (it can cause glare).
Another important thing to remember is to crop your photos well. You should be careful not to cut off important parts of the picture, but don’t worry about cutting off heads or feet. Also, pay attention to what’s in the background of your photos–if
Professional photographers spend their whole lives learning how to take amazing pictures.

My camera is like a secret agent. It goes places with me that only it and I know about. And no one ever suspects that it’s taking pictures of them.
A camera works best when you are somewhere you are not supposed to be, when you are doing something you are not supposed to be doing, or when you are in the middle of something so boring that you’d rather take pictures than listen to the lecture.
Taken literally, this means my camera is always with me. But it’s true even if you don’t literally have a camera on your person at all times. If you have an iPhone, or any other kind of camera phone, then you have a camera with you at all times. You can also have a real digital camera with a detachable lens. Or an SLR. Or whatever kind of camera strikes your fancy.
I work at home, but I do not live there, because if you live where work is, work and home start to feel like the same thing and that makes it harder to get things done. So I go out every day, usually during my lunch hour or right after work, and find interesting places to take pictures of.
This may sound weird but I do not like to take pictures of people. I love taking pictures of flowers, nature, anything that is beautiful or even ugly. I have taken thousands of pictures and my friends have probably seen all of them.
I don’t know why but some of them just look at me with a strange look on their faces.
I don’t care what they think, but it makes me sad because they always tell me that the picture doesn’t look good when they see it on their phone.
I still love taking pictures even if I don’t get a good response from my friends.*^
