First photo tip! Move CLOSER! Many people ask me to look at their photographs. Most do not solicit opinions because they really don’t want to know, but in my head I keep thinking to myself “MOVE CLOSER!” The most common mistake in day to day photography, including those dreaded vacation pictures, is that people are too far from their subject matter! Whether it’s candids of the children or that statue of the soldier on the horse! Take several big steps closer and you’ll be much happier with your photos. Never mind buying a zoom lens either. I mean get off your rear and move closer to your subject!
