Unfortunately this is the number one secret to success photography. You equipment matters! A lot! You can't obtain the same quality photos from point and shoot camera as from a DSLR camera. It's ok if you are a beginner to start with a point and shoot camera, but be aware if you really, really like photography is time for you to get a DSLR camera - Nikon, Canon or Pentax (for a low budget) are my recommendations. Guess which one is made with a point and shoot and which one is made with a DSLR ? You guess it right, the first one (left) is made with a Canon point and shoot and the second one with a Nikon DSLR.

Everybody loves cats, dogs and cute little baby animals. This cute animals will transmit joy, sadness or any other human emotion in a very strong way. Dogs and cats aren't like us. If they feel something, they don't hide it! So be sure to get lots of photos of this special animals, your photos will have a strong impact on the viewer of your photograph. Simple photos, but with so strong emotion! Isn't it? Page 4 of 12

Photograph children especially in nature. They are "wilder" and they express more. Try not to get observed. If they observe you, they will pay attention to you and your camera and all the naturalness of the scene can be ruined. Page 5 of 12

Get Strong Emotion from Adults by Staying FAR Away Unfortunately, adults forget to express their feelings in public or when they know somebody is watching them. If it's a group photo they get together and smile. This is all they know to do when they see a camera. But you can grab some really cool and strong emotions if you photograph them when they don't watch. For this, stay behind and use zoom lenses with vibrate reduction. Here are some photos, from a short photo trip in the park. Page 6 of 12

If You Are Not Pleased With the Adults Go for The Actors Sometimes adults really forget how to express them self. But actors don't! Go to an open air theater or to a circus show. You will sure find some great scenes to shoot! Page 7 of 12

Take a lot of photos and delete the bad ones One of the best secret of the pro photographers is that they know that not all photos are good. To succeed means to get more photos and keep just the good ones. After keeping just the good ones show to the public just the BEST of this photos. For example, on a trip of mine I've made 2000 photos in 2 days. I kept only ten and showed to the others only two of this photos.So don't get anxious if a photo will not be what you want. Just shoot, shoot and shoot! For this photo I've shoot 300 times at least, and made 50 or so settings! Page 8 of 12

Make manual settings of white balance, ISO and shutter speed depending on the scene If it's a scene where you have time to make manual settings, do this! Try to adjust white balance manually (for that check your camera manual). Also test what ISO you can use. Try to use the smaller ISO possible. The smaller the ISO number the clearer the photo (no photo noise).Raise the ISO when the scene is darker. Also try to adjust the shutter speed- smaller for fast shooting with no trailing light in the photo or slower if you want trails of light or blur effects in your photos (depends). For fireworks, a long shutter speed is recommended. For a bee that flies the shortest shutter speed is recommended. Page 9 of 12

You can't expect to call yourself a photographer if you do not have a tripod. Tripod can and must be used in the day, in the night, indoor or outdoor. Use tripods wherever you can. A tripod helps you get steady photos. Do not trust you steady arm or your camera built in vibrate reduction. The best vibrate reduction out there is a tripod. Look at the professional studios, you will always see a tripod. So get one, a steady one and be sure to be compatible with your camera weight. Page 10 of 12

Photography means painting with light. You can't expect to get astonishing photos at 12 pm a clock when the sun is up in the sky. When the sun is up in the sky, this means: - white sky - no shades You are an artist. Use the morning and the fall to get the best out of your colors. Page 11 of 12

Almost all your photos need some retouching: work with the colors, work whith the contrast and light, work with the focus and crop the photo to have a good composition. Also add a frame. It helps a lot! Here is what I mean: after editing before editing I hope you enjoy my report, talk to you soon! Thanks ! Page 12 of 12
