Snap­per shows how to take that great shot

I LOVE tak­ing pic­tures on my phone and I haven’t stopped snap­ping all the beau­ti­ful land­marks.

Un­for­tu­nately, my en­thu­si­asm is not matched by my abil­ity.

With NewsLo­cal’s #SnapSydney cam­paign hap­pen- ing next Wed­nes­day, I sought ex­pert ad­vice from Daily Tele­graph pho­tog­ra­pher John Fo­tiadis.

For starters, he says, make sure your lens is clean. And make sure your fin­gers aren’t any­where near the lens. I know it’s called dig­i­tal pho­tog­ra­phy but that’s not what they mean.

John sug­gests keep­ing pic­tures sim­ple and look­ing for strong com­po­si­tions.

Early morn­ing or late af­ter­noon will pro­vide in­ter­est­ing shad­ows and beau­ti­ful coloured light, he says. But don’t be afraid to shoot into the light, as this cre­ates in­ter­est­ing sil­hou­ettes.

I’ll be prac­tis­ing this week ahead of the big day next Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 18. I hope you will too.
