One of our communities, dmcicommunities.com, is wrapping up their successful photo contest for homeowners. With the deadline for entries coming up this week, we put up this piece to help anyone —with any camera — come out with great photos. It’s very basic, but our intention was to let everyone know that the contest is for everybody, not just photography enthusiasts.
After the jump, see an excerpt from the article:
4. Don’t cut subjects at the joints.
Have you ever taken a photo of that special someone, had it printed, framed it and hung it on your wall, only to realize that half the subject’s hand is missing? This is a photography no-no. In a photo, never cut your subject at the joints, meaning the hands, feet, elbows or knees. If you don’t plan to include the entire subject in the photo, put the edge of the frame in the middle of the upper or lower limbs (or include the entire limb).

There’s also a previous “Part 1” article we did a few weeks back, covering the camera’s basic and built-in features. Read that here: http://dmcicommunities.com/?p=997
