Know Your Resolution How you capture your photograph will determine the maximum size of the final print you can produce. Starting with a higher resolution Image will allow you to crop your photograph later and still have a sharp looking final product.
Use a Tripod A stable camera means sharper and clearer photographs. Digital cameras are very sensitive in lower light situations. If you turn the flash off thinking you'll capture some beautiful night scenes, you'll be very disappointed with the blur of the final Image
Purchase NiMH Batteries Long lasting batteries will allow you to take more photographs and not miss 'the' moment. An added benefit with rechargeable batteries is that they will save you hundreds of dollars and are good for the environment. The best type is NiMH (Nickel-Metal Hydride) rechargeable batteries and each one lasts approximately 500 times longer than a regular AA or AAA battery
