  1. Know your camera

Your camera might be equipped with loads of functions which you are unaware of so look into its features before you start clicking. It may have advanced settings capable of making you a smart photographer. Learn to use the features it provides like focus, shutter speed, lighting and the like.

Photography means drawing with light so in the absence of light photo can’t be created. In low light situations, while shooting indoors consider using artificial light. If the subject is facing toward a better light, you will get better output.

4.Compose your shot

Frame your subject carefully before taking a shot. Windows can be a great frame to add depth to your photo. Taking photo in the same angle that is putting the subject at the centre also makes a photo look dull so try different angles.

5.Never use zoom

Using zoom often can result in a photo with a poor quality. Better take the image and crop it later. If you want to get close, go closer to your subject on your own.

If you are far away from your subject, you can’t get a detailed shot. By zooming or standing far from the subject you are cropping a photo before it is being taken.

There are various apps available for editing purpose with which you can crop, add brightness and so on. Try those apps and make your photos look better.
