    Wonderfully concise! I’ll be sharing with my group of 30+ volunteer amateur photographers for our school yearbook. Nearly everyone uses point and shoot cameras or auto settings (with zero post production) It’s especially challenging to find any information to help them improve their photos. This is an easy AND easy to remember tip that will without a doubt yield great results for them. The happier they are with their photos, the more eager they will be to continue helping out. And, they’ll get some great photos of their kids in the process. Thanks very very much!ReplyCancel

    My Suggestions:
    Anticipate – try and second guess what they are about to do and where they are about to go.  Then get your camera lined up and focused. e.g. You spot a puppy heading their way or a fallen log that is too irresistible not to climb.
    Set traps – Don’t ask them to pose. be more subtle.  e.g. Surprise them with a giant cardboard box, then say “I bet you can’t fit inside that!”ReplyCancel
