With Christmas just a few days away, now is the perfect time to hone your skills so you can transform ordinary snapshots into gorgeous portraits you will treasure. Don’t worry about what type of camera or smartphone you have; they say the best camera is the one in your hand! So here are some quick tips to help you along the way.
1. Read the manual that came with your camera or smartphone: Everyone hates this tip, because it seems daunting, and some of the manuals can be quite large and boring! I still think it’s worthwhile because the more familiar you become with your camera, the better the results. While it’s very tempting to simply point and shoot your shiny new DSLR, you will find over time that the more you understand the settings, the more control you will have over the end results.
