Step 1: Pictures of People

If you're taking a picture of a person, do a "1, 2, 3" so they aren't blinking. Doing an action shot? It will turn out blurry sometimes, just keep trying. And pictures when they're not expecting it is good too, it doesn't look as posed.

Step 2: Animal Pictures

Everyone loves animals, right? Not when they won't stay where they're supposed to in a picture! Funny animal pictures are good. They turn out best when it's a domesticated animal, too. Squirrels are tough to get a picture of!

Step 3: Angles

Pictures from an angle look really cool. Bird's eye view and panorama are interesting, I suggest looking them up. Panorama might be on your camera!

Step 4: Editing Them

You might have an editing program on your computer or smartphone. Trust me, editing looks cool but don't over do it! If you have an iPhone/iPod touch/Android device, get Instagram for a good editing app!

    Nice tips. It's also good to edit your photos and make sure they're bright and clear enough for everyone to see. Thanks for sharing!
