Don’t have the perfect photo? Don’t worry! Below are some helpful tips for capturing stunning digital photos:

Pictures of People

• Focus on faces, and not whole bodies
• Use the rule of thirds (the imaginary division of a photo, horizontally and vertically, into nine equal parts to create points of interest along those lines)
• Remember: Eyes and mouths show the most emotion


• The sun should always be behind you, so light will shine on a subject
• Use a shadowed background and utilize your camera’s ‘fill-flash’ (sometimes called ‘daylight flash’) to add light and fill shadows
• Avoid bright light or extreme darkness

Cool Extras

• Look for the ‘Automatic’ mode on your camera to easily capture great photos with the push of a button
• Try out your camera’s ‘Sports/Action’ mode to utilize faster shutter speeds for sharper pictures, and to capture split-second memories
• Utilize the ‘Landscape’ mode to focus on beautiful, sprawling scenes to capture all the details
