10 Key Factors To a Good Photograph

1) Interesting subject.

2) Nice setting or background.

3) Good lighting.

4) Careful composition.

5) Expert exposure.

6) Careful focus.

7) Correct lens choice.

8) Correct f-stop shutter speed combo.

9) Feeling or emotion you are trying to capture and share. (Often overlooked, by the way.)

10) Creative post-processing.

Print this out and stuff it in your camera bag. See, its not really that hard to make a good picture.

P.S. I took the shot on the left with my G10 and the shot on the right with my 5D Mark II. Remember, cameras don’t take pictures……
