hi guys, i`m saboytjie, gonna start a tips page... i got a book when i started taking photos...the book still helps me today and i hope it will help you too...

1. Format, your first choice is what shape to make the picture- horizontal or upright. here, the horizontal format allows the umbrella to fill the frame.

2.The background - should be an acting part of enery picture but not so strong that it detracts from the subject, simplicity....

3. The Subject - every pic needs a subject, with the child being slightly of centre the image is more dynamic than if the composition being symmetrical.

4. The foreground - fore grounds can contribute strongly, or distract from the subject: here, the photographer left out nearly all of the foreground to keep it simple...

lastly Viewpoint - whether you look up or down at your subject makes a big difference !
