  40. 40. QUICK TIPS
  41. 41. Posed but not really. . . Posed shots are not good. But shots of people posing for other people often work. Since they aren’t posing for you, the shot is candid and the angle is interesting.
  42. 42. Always have your camera Keep your camera with you. It’s not hard. Just put it in your purse or backpack. So if there’s, let’s say, a chemistry lab you’ll be all set.
  43. 43. Take lots of photos but. . . <ul><li>Do all of these things before pressing the button: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Compose your shot </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Don’t blindly shoot </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Try for rule of thirds </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Get close enough </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pay attention to all corners of the screen/viewfinder </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Avoid distractions (other people, cars, books) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Again, make sure you’re close enough (no wasted space) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>“ Compose your shot… </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Don’t blindly shoot….” </li></ul></ul></ul>
  44. 44. Busy vs simple Very very VERY distracting Much more simplistic
  45. 45. Sell the story <ul><li>Don’t rely on captions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pictures are more interesting when they tell a story. </li></ul></ul>(left) This person is obviously engaged in conversation about something, but the picture doesn’t tell what and the emotion in his face isn’t great enough to stand on its own.… (right) By simply widening the shot and including another person you can better understand that they are talking about a picture or the camera she is holding… This makes the viewer understand the picture and want to look at it.
