Tips & Tricks from Our Judges

 

  1. Avoid distracting backgrounds.

 2. Try photographing from different angles. (i.e. from above or below)

3.  Use the macro setting on compact cameras. They give excellent results - equal to fancier expensive cameras.

4.  Keep your camera steady. Use a tripod or set it on something sturdy and use the self timer.
