Things to Try...

  • Outdoors, try practicing in windy areas.

  • Try action pictures - a car or bicycle going by. Moving with your subject in the viewfinder is called panning.

  • Adding depth (see example)/showing size (see example) - to show a subject is massive or tall, show something of a known size next to it, such as a hand or a person.

  • Find a subject that doesn't move.

  • Place the camera on a solid surface and take the picture.

  • Remember what you saw in the viewfinder and take the same picture while jumping in the air.

  • Take a third picture holding the camera in your hands. Compare all three.

If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough.
