Throughout the world people are deciding what they want to change for the year ahead. So what should us photographers aim to change? Here are 10 resolutions that can help us all become better photographers in 2011.
Go early in the morning, this is when the animals are the most active and there are fewer people to have to shoot around. When photographing in glass enclosed exhibits, use your lens hood to reduce any glare. You can use a shallow depth of field to blur any unwanted background and produce a great wildlife photograph.
But this tutorial is going to focus on the technique of the detail shot. By getting up close and personal with our subjects, we can show our audience things they rarely experience.
Flowers are a beautiful and popular subject, but taking photos of them outdoors is often a frustrating process.
Sometimes when you’re taking a photo, you can be concentrating so much on your subject that you forget about the background.

But have you ever really considered just how important getting a good background is to making great photos?
Like most people, I’ve listened to music my whole life – certain events even seem to have their own soundtrack! As I’ve grown up, I’ve decided that music, much like a cuddly pet, is best enjoyed in person.
