Taking better pictures really comes down to 7 factors and how you execute them. You might be thinking -“Oh lord!”, but not to worry.

To aid us in the task of learning how to take better pictures we will study an infographic called “How To Take Better Photographs” created by Visual.ly (commissioned by Sykes). It’s a straightforward infographic which will take no longer than 5 minutes to read through.
One of the most important things to think about when you take photos is that the subject you are taking a picture of should almost always face the light source. If you are taking a photo where the dominating light source is directly behind the subject you are taking a photo of you will end up with a picture that looks more like a silhouette than anything else. In order to get the best result, always have your subject face the light source. However, be aware not to stand in front of the light source yourself or you will cast a shadow on your subject, which will not exactly make for a good picture. This is just one of the 7 factors that will allow you to take better pictures, especially on your holiday.
