Useful Photo Tips

 1. Master the Exposure Triangle
ISO, Aperture and Shutter are known as the “exposure triangle”. If you know how to control or adjust these elements, taking well exposed photos will not be a problem for you. Let us look at each element closely and understand how they can help you achieve the right exposure. These 3 import elements for exposure are Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO. Read more.

2. The Rule of Thirds –
The Rule of Thirds is perhaps the most well-known ‘rule’ of photographic composition. The basic principle behind the rule of thirds is to imagine breaking an image down into thirds (both horizontally and vertically) so that you have 9 parts. See samples here.
