1) The most important point of taking closer photos, is zooming to the eyes.

2) Choosing the right lens is important! Some of your photos must be taken closer and some of them must be taken from a          longer distance. For example; football games or animal photos should be taken from a long distance. You need a                         teleobjective for this...

3) Especially the background by taking human or portrait photos must be plain.

4) Choosing the point of view must be correctly. Think about, how you want to show the topic. If you have a hard subject               (buildings, fountains, etc.), mess around a little bit and try to find the best angle. Be careful about perspective mistakes.            Try to improve different point of views. You don’t have to take the photo like from normal person's eye level; you can use         high or low places to take the photo.

5)    If you are taking speedy photos (like; races, football), your shutter speed must be least 1/500 s.

6)    Using tripod to take photos gives you the chance to use the frame and high diaphragm well.

7)    It is useful to carry a small tripod.

8)   When you take photos without tripod check the instantiation out. The instantiation value should be similar to the                        distance  of the focus point of your lens (for 50mm > 1/60s, for 200mm > 1/250 s, for 300mm > 1/500).

9)   Use parasol when you take photos at sunlight.

10) When you take panoramic shots use your camera vertical, so you can take a lot photos and prevent perspective                        mistakes.

11) The most unsuitable time to take photos, is at overhead sun (12:00-14:00).

12) To take photos and use tripod at special places apply permission .

13) Don’t forget, that in dark environments the flash will be enough just for 3-4 m distance.

14) Check the wind speed out for flowers photos. Also check light out, because some flower photos can be pretty at                        backlight.

15) Back light, fog and smoke photos can attract attention.

16) LCD screens at digital cameras use lots of battery. Shut down the LCD mode.

17) When you put and take off the memory cards be sure the camera is closed otherwise the photos can be deleted.

18) Read operating manual of photograph camera. It can have any special features you have not known yet.

19) Carry some extra batteries for long trips.

20) Topics shouldn't be at the middle of the frame. It looks better, if it is on top, bottom, left or right of the frame.

21) Check ISO and WB features out before you take photos.

22) Use RAW mode, if you have limited light.

23) Carry your camera and objectives at water and dust proof bags.

24) Storage the important photos at hard disc and backup also at DVDs.

25) If you upload the photos on internet, mail etc. use small sizes and take photos as JPEG.

26) Use rain cover for rainy days. If your camera gets wet, mop it immediately!

27) You have the opportunity, to use UV or Skylight as protective filters, so the camera is protected against scratch, dust,              etc.

28) This is the ultimate rule for image formation: split the picture into three equal horizontal and vertical strips. Bring in your          designs at the parting lines of these thirds.

29) You can use natural frames, for example, branches or trees, rocks and other ancillary subjects.

30) The probably most used lens for portraits is  a 80mm lens (on a full frame camera, or 50mm on a DSLR with a 1.6 crop              factor).

       ortant! Some of your photos must be taken closer and some of them must be taken from a longer distance. For example;        football games or animal photos should be taken from a long distance. You need a teleobjective for this...
