Photography tips to Shoot Nice Photos
In this post, I’m introducing 8 Photography tips to Shoot Nice Photos to all photography enthusiasts. I hope you will find it useful with at least some of them.
1. Don’t be afraid of cropping
First of the photography tips for beginners is cropping the most perfect part of images.
Many cases require us to shoot very fast so as to keep the moments. If you choose the correct layout before shooting, it’s easy to miss the great moments, especially the continuous and fast moving subjects.
Hence, we often shoot the whole subject in a wide frame so as not to lose the “golden” moments, and the center focus is really the highest sharpness.
And, It’s very necessary to crop the correct-layout frame in the post-image process. So, in this case, you’d better to boldly focus the middle frame, shoot the wide angle to capture the subject, and then crop.
Of course, the image size decreases little or much, but your works meet your desire for shooting nice photos.
2. Use the AF-On button
The photography tips and tricks are quite interesting.
We half-press the “shooting” button to focus, but you can you AF-On button for convenience. This button is on the back of the camera body.
When you press this button to autofocus, there is no need to worry about everything related to focusing by pressing the ½ button. On the other hand, only by pressing this button can’t you re-focus after pressing ½ shooting button.
When choosing the correct focusing, you can lock the focus by the AF button. This button is very functional and useful in many cases.

3. Use Aperture of f/8 for shooting nice photos
As you may know, f/8 is golden aperture value and an optimal aperture of a lens. At this aperture value, the photos, especially wide-angle ones are enough soft and gentle with correct depth of field.
Besides, the aperture of f/8 is an ideal suggestion on the landscape and wide-angle photos.
4. Use Correct and enough exposure
If you use good exposure technique, you can master your camcorder and control enough light through the lens to the sensor for better images. For digital cameras, you can see that redundant or missing light of some aperture values is common as the post-image process is still Ok.
In fact, the redundant/ missing light will miss more details; the transition of colors from one area to another is not soft and gentle, and the colors reduce fidelity. It’s a necessity to practice adjusting aperture, shutter speed, ISO.
5. Use Focus Stacking
For still-life photos, products or macro which you shoot with the lowest aperture value and lack of deep sharpness, you should use the focus stacking technique.
You can select the following tips, namely stabilizing your camera with the frame, non-moving subjects, shooting multiple images simultaneously with the same frames where each of the focusing points changes from the nearest and the deepest point to the end of the subject.
6. Don’t take too many details
There are many beautiful scenes. But, if the photographer keeps too many details in the frame, the viewers may not focus on the most remarkable subjects.
What a confusing picture! With the hope of keeping all nice subjects, the photographers don’t often crop or remove them out of the frame. Shooting nice photos with some basic parts and keep everything necessary which they hope the viewers to focus on.
7. Use Mirro lock-up
Using low-speed exposure like night exposure, turning on the mirror lockup mode, and pressing the shooting button first on the remote. And then, opening the shutter and pressing the shooting button second, it’s high time for cameras to start shooting.
This tip is widely used to avoid camera shake when opening the shutter, and you will take the sharpest photo. But, some camcorders aren’t available for this function.
8. Last photography tips: Adjusting
Apart from unadjustable photos, adjusting photos show the respect for viewers and the photographers themselves. Also, it’s the respect for your ambition and works.
