Taking Pictures At Day

Since I showed tips for taking pictures at night, I think it is only logic that show you tips for taking pictures at day too.

When you are taking pictures at the day, remember to watch for the exposure. Sometime we tend to shoot the pictures without adjusting the exposure. This can cause your pictures to look blown out even you are keeping the exposure meter at normal.

Luckily, we are in the era of digital photography. You can always change the exposure and take the pictures. Imagine when you were in the film photography time. You probably have to waste a precious shot and be upset for days.

Another thing you need to look after when you are taking pictures at day is your digital camera lens. This is because lenses are actually sensitive to sun light. Excessive sun light can damage the lenses.

So, when you are taking pictures for sun rise and sun set, try to avoid pointing directly at the sun. If you need to work under a sunny day, remember to cover the lens and for compact digital camera user, remember to off your camera so that the lens can be hidden.

Lastly, try to take a break when you are taking pictures under the sun. It will cost you a lot of money to buy a new lens.

Happy taking pictures,
