A description of ways of improving ones photography. Useful for the student as well as a practical guide for the serious amateur. Many of my colleagues and associates have found these notes useful for their lectures and publications, I hope you find them useful also. These notes are being updated on a regular basis as images are obtained or the technology changes. They were originally conceived in November 1981 during the sweltering pre-rainy season in Zambia and were gradually built up into this form today........the evolution continues with changing technology. Many photography colleges in India, Malaysia and Singapore distribute these notes as part of their teaching aid. The author started his photographic career in September 1971 in his native Guyana, while a student at the Berbice High School, freelancing for the weekly newspapers, "The Berbice Times" and "The New Nation". The author is available to run workshops and training courses on photography, if required.

Digital Photography Tip 1
 
 
Proximity to Your Subject
 
 Almost any shot will look better if you take two or three steps closer to your subject. Filling the frame entirely with your subject will make a terrific difference to your images.
 
 Alternatively, instead of moving closer, use the Optical or Digital Zoom of your camera to get a close up shot. (Preferably Optical zoom
 –
 We will discuss the reason for this in the next section)
 
When taking shots of family and friends, most people place the subject's full body in the frame, or place head and arms in the shot.
Instead, fill the frame with your subject's face only - particularly if they are smiling or are in a moment of reflection.
 
Why does this work? With less clutter in the image, there's less to draw the eye away from the main subject of your photo. Also, human faces (particularly children's faces) are something we all derive great pleasure looking at.
 
If you can't get close enough when you're taking the shot, you can zoom in later using photo editing software - crop out everything except the subject's face and see what a difference it makes.
 
When using the viewfinder for close shots, be careful of Parallax. Because the viewfinder is not at the same position as the camera's lens, centering the subject in the viewfinder may mean it is not centered for the lens resulting in an off-centered final picture. Most digital cameras now come with an inbuilt LCD screen. You can eliminate this problem by using the LCD - which shows you exactly what the lens sees - rather than the viewfinder. With a parallax viewfinder, you will develop the habit of correcting for parallax errors quite easily to centralize your picture.
