1. Turn your flash off

Why anyone thought putting a direct flash on a camera was a good idea, I'll never know. Direct flashes are scary and very unflattering. Please turn if off immediately.

2. Check your Lighting

It's important to ensure your subject is suitably lit. As you can see my sky is beautifully exposed but my subject is drastically under exposed. (Step by Step post coming soon on how to correct this)

3. Zoom in on your subject

You need to know what the subject in the photo is. Simply move closer or zoom in to improve this.

4. Take the photo at head height

This is my favourite and fastest way to improve your photography. So many parents take photos at their chest height, resulting in unflattering images. Try moving to the subjects head height to see a massive improvement immediately.

5. Clear the cutter

Make sure your background is cutter free. It stops the viewer from being distracted, and emphasis the subject.

6. Share your photo's
