Very good tips. Thanks

I've been using my wife angle for the most part and recently purchased a longer lens. That'll give me something to work on.

Wonderful, shooting higher up with the wide angle is a great tip! Cheers

Hi Nigel, fantastic tips, most of time I lower tripod… will need to try more at eye level and tilt down to create separation. Thanks man!

Don Kennedy says:

Can’t find list of 7 tips in notes?
Am I missing something?
Brilliant video! Good photography is all around composition. Exposure or focus can be slightly off, but you can’t ignore bad composition.

Steve Strummer says:

Some great stuff Nigel, especially #3 – we're all guilty of that.
–> My top tip: When looking around at possible composition options (e.g. when looking through a rectangle you create using the first finger and thumb of each hand) try *closing one eye*. This forces you to view the scene in *2D*, which of course is how the final processed image will appear (i.e. once printed or on a screen). Our binocular 3D vision naturally imbues any vista/composition with a sense of depth, and makes it look more appealing. How often do we look through our images out of camera and think how much more 'real' or 'vibrant' the scene looked when we actually took the shot? Believe me, this does work and does force you to think harder about what will actually work when viewed in 2D.

Bill Hiskett says:

Another super set of tips, I am very guilty of getting too low down, thanks Nigel
