Canon’s ex­pert tips on snap­ping your pas­sions

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

Sport:

Stay close to the im­age and keep the light be­hind you. Then crop the frame to min­imise back­ground dis­trac­tions.

Still on sport:

Keep your eye on the game at all times. The great mo­ments hap­pen in a mat­ter of sec­onds.

Wa­ter and the beach:

Look for re­flec­tions on the sur­face. Try to keep the cam­era level and the hori­zons straight.

Land­scapes:

Colour can be dis­tract­ing so try black and white. Have a strong sub­ject within the frame. Level hori­zons are im­por­tant here, too.

Be ab­stract:

Look out for tex­tures, tones and pat­terns. It’s about see­ing some­thing peo­ple of­ten miss. Shad­ows can make sim­ple, ab­stract shots.
