How To Take Good Photos

- Lenses giving extreme wide-angle views can take in a large part of a scene. This can be effective in conveying the sense of space by exaggerating the difference between near and far.
- If you have a point-and-shoot camera, you may need to fit a wide-angle attachment to increase the field of view.
- If you cannot take a scene in one view, try making a simple panorama with just two pictures side-by-side. Then use your computer to stitch them together.
- Wide-angle views will exaggerate converging parallels, where parallel lines in the picture appear to meet at a distance. This will make buildings appear to lean backwards if you point the camera upwards: try to keep the camera level.
