    You could start by holding your camera straight

    I agree with holding the camera straight. In #2, you need to focus on the man :dunno:

    If you don't have a tripod, brace yourself against something or put the camera on timed release and rest it on something.

    Or hold it tight in your body. That's how I was taught to deal when I had a photo class back in high school. Closest to your body is most sturdy :o

    first pic, angle sucks

    second pic, focus sucks

    third pic, composition sucks / blown highlights

    fourth is best of the bunch, but still doesn't really do anything for me.


    yes, long exposure is fun and cool looking, but you still need to pay attention to all the other basic elements of photography.

    #1 #2 #3...maybe the concept in your head was good, but i don't think it came into fruition.
