Are you a budding photographer looking for tips on how to take better photographs? Then read on. Mastering the art of photography isn't easy, however, if you follow these tips you'll be well on your way to taking photographs that you'll treasure throughout the years...

• Get in close. The famous photojournalist Robert Capa once said “if your photos aren't good enough, you're not close enough”. So go on and get in amongst the action!

• See the light. Learn to use light to your advantage. Whether it's natural sunlight or artificial light coming from a lamp, you can use it to make your photos better.

• Use flash. Don't assume that flash should only be used at night or indoors. Flash can fill in ugly shadows on a bright day and create an even exposure.

• Read the manual! By reading your camera's manual you can learn what to do with your camera in order to create images that you're proud of. 

• Practice, practice, practice! This is the best way to hone your photography skills. 

Spend hours behind the camera experimenting with different styles.
