- Crop out extra elements that you are not interested in.
- Keep the horizon level;
- Place your subject where you think it most belongs rather than just accepting it wherever it happens to land in the photo;
- Play with perspective so that all lines show a pattern or lead the eye to your main subject
- Keep anything that would distract out of the picture.
- Focus on your subject
3. Avoid high contrast situations-You have to avoid shooting when there are extreme highlights and shadows,because will lose detail both in dark and light areas.Avoid shooting in direct sunlight.
4. Move in closer-You have to try different shoots,and you have to move in close to frame the subject better.
Very often detail are more interesting than an overall view.Keep moving in closer until you are sure the photo will successfully represent your subject.
5. Keep your camera settings simple-This doesn't mean that you have to keep your camera on AUTO settings,but you can have better results If you pick a semi-automatic program like shutter speed or aperture priority or you can just use the camera programs like landscape,portrait,night etc until you learn a little more.Also bring a tripod. This one item can solve camera shake issues and help you get beautiful evening shots.
