We've said it before, we'll say it again: composition is perhaps the single most important thing in creating a great photograph. Yes, lighting, technique, timing, and execution are all important too, but if you have lousy photo composition, your image is still going to stink.

It’s not unusual to end up with underexposed photos when shooting outdoors under difficult light with a wide range of tones. Some photographers try to rehabilitate dark images with HDR editing, but that’s often tricky and may yield unsatisfactory results.

Everyone knows that “blue hour” is a great time for photography; whether you’re shooting cityscapes, travel images, or other types of outdoor photos. Typically lasting 20-30 minutes, blue hour is that magical time immediately after sunset or just before sunrise. The exact timing of blue hour varies by location, and changes depending upon the time of year.

There are few things worse than dull and flat monochrome images. After all, striking contrast and drama are two of the reasons many photographers forego color in favor of b&w.

Light is the key component of all forms of photography. That’s because perfect focus and composition, and a great subject, are all for naught if the light is flat or dull.

Nothing spoils an otherwise great shot more than failing to achieve precise focus. You can compose a scene properly, nail exposure, and capture beautiful colors, but if the image is soft all is for naught.
