Capturing the Moment

To the left: Towson University Sophomore Kierra Suggs stands outside the Van Bokkelen Hall building during a Journalism and New Media I class assignment.

To the right: The Delta Faternity at Towson University raises funds for Testicular Cancer in 48 hrs. Eddie Koury, 20 who is majoring in Finance helps to raise funds by staying on the see saw for several hours. He has participated in the fund raiser last year.

So I tried to upload my photo of the Towson Tiger Statue it for some reason it wouldn't allow me to do so.

But here are the pictures that were taken during class on Wednesday, the 29th of October. Taking pictures can be fun, but there are a few tips that can easily improve one's photos. For instance, when taking a portrait of someone do not back them up against a blank wall.

It's boring and not as natural as taking a portrait with a background or setting that the person is in. Another tip that works to improve pictures is using different angles.

It is a simple adjustment that can make a photo better. Another suggestion is to always fill the frame. If you do not fill the frame you may cause confusion on what the subject or focus of the picture is.

Lastly, it is always good to be prepared for a picture shot. When taking stop action photos like many sports photographers do, you should always be in position and ready to take a priceless shot.

I'm glad you mentioned "fill the frame." This is such a simple thing, and yet it dramatically improves your pictures.
