stage 2. Photo tips

+  ALWAYS use the highest quality setting on your camera. (Use the RAW setting if your camera has it.)

+ Use a TRIPOD and time-delay, expecially for interior shots.

+ Use LOW ISO

+ Do NOT try to shoot with a shutter speed below 1/60 sec. (and only use 1/60 sec. if you are steady handed).

+ AVOID using flash for close-up work.

+ Use NATURAL LIGHT when possible. Use colour-correction settings with artificial light.

 + AVOID:

       a) strong light contrasts

       b) strong light behind subject

        (USE an umbrella or similar object to shield light on subject if necessary)
