Following are a few tips to help you take the best digital photos you can:
Set up--Stage the scene by clearing clutter; even little things that you don't notice with the naked eye can catch your eye in a photograph.
Time it right--For exterior photos, the best light is usually 10 to 20 minutes after dusk.
Turn up the light--Shoot in indirect light both inside and outside. Flashes work great, but natural light gives the best results.
Get framed--Follow the photography rule of thirds. When framing a shot, draw imaginary lines dividing the image into thirds, both horizontally and vertically. Place the important people or elements where the lines intersect.
