How to take better pictures - no matter what sort of camera you have

This weekly blogger tip is complements of Shutterfly:   tips about how to take great photos, of various types, no matter what sort of camera you use.


Why take your own pictures, when there are so many free-photo-search tools out there?

Well, if you want your blog to be copyright-legal, then you need to either find free-use photos, or make your own. Creating your own post-photos is especially useful to prove that your local blog really is local (like this) - and taking pictures that I take myself and host pictures in Picasa / Google+ Photos means that my posts always have a thumbnail image.


Great tips from the pros, here:

The best bit is that this isn't just a glossy, or a snobby "fancy-cameras-only" guide.    There are tips for every combination of  camera type:
  • DSLR
  • Smartphone
  • Point and shoot
and photo type:
  • Portraits
  • Selfie
  • Bokeh
  • Macro
  • Action shots
  • Close up
  • Wide angle
  • Food
  • Candid
  • By the water
  • Landscape
  • Panorama
