TIPS FOR A TOP PICTURE
SCUNTHORPE Telegraph photographer Carl Gac shares his top tips on taking the perfect picture:
Try to find a different view of what you’re photographing. Most people will always shoot from the same viewpoint but a little higher or lower can make a picture look so much different.
Don’t be afraid to ask other photographers for help. If you can’t get that perfect shot, someone else can usually help you get it. Two heads are usually better than one.
There is always something to take a picture of so keep your camera handy all the time.
