5 Ways to Take Better Pictures by Tiffany Rebecca Photography

First of all, I hope you had a great Christmas! 
I hope you enjoyed it, spent it with family and friends, and made sure to remember and ponder about the true meaning of Christmas.
Today we have one of my sponsors, Tiffany from Tiffany Rebecca Photography, taking over the blog today with some great photography tips! Enjoy!

While I believe in investing in professional photography to document important life events I also believe that it's important to catch every day moments well too! Here are just 5 ways to improve your own photography. 

1. Turn off your flash!

The biggest mistake I see people making is using flash. Of course there will be times where it's very dark and you'll need to use your flash, but otherwise I recommend not using it. When enough natural light is available there is no reason to use a flash. Natural light is much more flattering and will not make women's makeup shine (Don't you hate when that happens?)

You can turn off your camera by exploring the options on your camera.

Another note: A basic flash won't carry more than a few feet. If you are taking a landscape or your subject is more than a few feet away your flash won't illuminate them anyway.
