Better PhotographyOK, so I’m no Derren Brown… but I bet I can guess how tall you are, even though we’ve never met, just by looking at photo’s you’ve taken.

There are so many ways to take better photos, but you can start without even getting into what your camera settings are.

Most people take their photos at one height, theirs.  If you’re 5’ 10” all your images are taken from that height.  Want better photos?  Vary the height, vary 
the angle.

In the example shot I went for a really low viewpoint to emphasise the dramatic sky in the shot, which looks great, but I’m sure I’m still finding sand in unmentionable places!

Kneel down, stand on something (solid!), lay down, crouch – anything to change that view.  Really think about where you take the photo from – and don’t be afraid to experiment.  The days of 24 pics or 36 are long gone (yes I’m showing my age – I used to shoot film) so there is no excuse for not being a bit more adventurous – after all you can just delete any that don’t work…

With photographer Niel Stewert.

And remember – have fun!
