Some times from another article I wrote elsewhere.
Few things are better for communication than good pictures. On the other hand, even a bad photo can do some good on social media. Your social network needs a constant variety of fresh content. Tweets, status updates, posts, links, check-ins, and shared videos are always great, but you also need to post still pictures regularly.
1. Get Closer. Most pictures are taken from too far away. This makes the subjects in a picture too small for viewers to appreciate. Before you take a picture, get closer to your subject. After that, take two more steps closer. Now you’re ready to take a picture!
2. Compose your shots. Smart phones come with the option to display a grid to help you line up your shot. (Look under “options” on your phone’s camera for this setting.) The grid on your phone is based on the “Rule of Thirds.” It’s all photographer alchemy. In short, just place the most important part of your picture, your center of interest, at one of the four places where the lines cross. A person who is the center of interest should look or appear to be moving toward the center of the picture. Why? There is no “why,” only “do.”
3. Take a lot of photos. Go forth and multiply your shots. Pictures are cheap and easy to take, so don’t be stingy with the clicks! This gives you many pictures to choose from and increases the likelihood that one of them will be good.The difference between a good photographer and a bad one? A good photographer only shows you the good pictures he or she takes.
4. Think before you post. Pick only the best ones to post. You are recording history in the making.
