Try different shutter speeds for finding what works for various situations. One of the beautiful things about photography is that it lets you freeze a split-second scene or fuse together extended periods of time. Set the speed of your shutter to a fast one in order to still motion, or a slow one to portray the best features of landscapes.
Don’t get ahead of yourself and try to adjust all the camera settings without really knowing what you’re doing. Master one control at a time, such as the shutter speed or the aperture, before taking on the next. This will enable you get the image that you want, when you want it, instead of losing time having to fumble with the settings.
Try out new ideas, and don’t shy away from taking original photos. Personal style should be in a good photograph to express your point of view. Try to stay away from taking pictures that are described as ‘classic’. Look for different angles to emphasize different aspects of your subject.
Keeping your batteries charged will help you never miss the shot of a lifetime. Using the LCD on a digital camera drains the batteries, so always ensure that the battery is fully charged before leaving the house. You could always carry a spare set of batteries with you so you can change them out, and you’ll never miss a great photo.

What works for someone else may not necessarily work for you, so make sure to try many different techniques before deciding on what works best for you. The advice here can help you begin your own journey to creating memorable images.
