5 photo tips as of 23 October 2008

Tip 46 (Framing): Frame the scene so that it contains an object that will become the center of interest – doing this draws the viewer’s eye to the picture

Tip 47 (Landscape): When you are trying to take a photo of a landscape with a distant horizon, place the horizon a third of the way down from the top or bottom of the frame rather than at the center of the photo. Doing this normally presents a much better composition effect to the photo.

Tip 48 (Lighting in a landscape): Getting the quality of lighting right in a landscape photo can make the difference between whether it is a great photo or a good photo (or even a poor photo). To repeat, lighting is perhaps the most influential attribute of a successful landscape. If you have the patience or the sense of timing to wait for lighting that is soft, or dramatic, or slightly diffused, or very sharp, it usually pays off in a memorable photograph.

Tip 49 (Using Flash in a smoky location): This is almost a no-no, unless you want some of the smoky effect. When you use a flash in a situation where there is smoke, or water particles or fog, the light of the flash is reflected right back from these particles in the air. Further, if it is a dusty environment, then you will run into the same situation.

Tip 50 (Manipulating ISO for low light conditions): If you have a situation where the lighting conditions are bad, and a flash will not help (and you have no other access to improve lighting through artificial means), then you should use the ISO setting. Increasing the ISO setting helps in increasing the level of light in the photo, but with a cost. As you increase ISO, noise level in the photo increases.
