Shooting. You don’t need to have tons of professional photo equipment in order to take good pictures. You can shoot with any camera, even the one on your smartphone.

In this digital era, everyone takes a lot of photos, and often ends up with no space on their hard-drives. This is one reason for learning to select our best photos and having the courage to delete the bad ones.

 Trust us, no-one needs hundreds of photos of the same subject.  If you find it hard to press the “delete” button, then carry out a small exercise: every time you take photographs, show them to your friends and relatives and ask them which ones they prefer and why. Sometimes this is the best way to get a constructive feedback. Accepting criticism is also part of the learning process.

Printing. In this digital age, many of us have forgotten the thrill ofhanding round a photograph printed on a smooth glossy paper. It’s just the best way to see people’s instant reactions to your pictures. And the best part is that printing images at home is now an affordable solution. You can buy a decent inkjet printer within the £50-70 price range (eg a Canon Pixma MG3150). Add some photo paper and you’re ready for action.

 One piece of advice – don’t try and economise on paper! Good quality photo paper really makes the difference. We personally use Canon for our prints.
