If one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to become a better photographer, here are five tips for better photos in 2015:
1) Bring your DSLR camera with you everywhere you go. The camera phone is just not as good.
2) Carry an extra, inexpensive tripod in your trunk. I can’t tell how you how many times I lost a good shot because I did not have a tripod. The photo shown on the left was taken with a camera sitting on a cooler and the waves almost took it away.
3) Spend an hour in your own backyard and you will be amazed at what you will find. The photo of the leaf shown below was taken 3 days after Christmas.
4) Learn how to auto-bracket exposures. It is a really simple set-up on a DSLR camera. You will be surprised at how different the images will look with varied exposures.
5) Give yourself a self-assignment every month. Research the topic on the internet, gather your information, experiment, and have fun. You might just find out a new way of doing something. I have been a photographer since 1975 and I still learn something new every month.
