Even those Baby Boomers who've owned digital cameras for a while can use tips on how to make better pictures and beginners to digital photography need a little guidance to build confidence in their ability to take great shots.

Here are some digital photography pointers:

Ever see a fantastic scene outside your bay window at home or your car window and wonder whether you can shoot a good picture through glass? The answer is, yes, you can. All you need to do is place the camera as close as you can to the glass and don't use a flash when you take the shot. This minimizes the effect of light reflecting on the shiny surface of the glass as well as minimizes the problem of focusing on the window instead of the scene.

Would you like to take some shots of rectangular paintings to put in an online gallery, but fear they'll come out resembling parallelograms instead of rectangles? Don't worry. Digital photography can work for you in this case if you line your camera and picture up so that they are perfectly parallel. Mounting the picture on the wall and the camera on a tripod so that the center of the camera lens is trained right on the center of the picture should do the trick.

Have you tried to take pictures of children at play and been disappointed because the great scene you tried to capture is already gone by the time you push the shutter button or if you do catch the shot, it's blurry? The solution is to increase your shutter speed because that will help freeze action. Also, knowing that your tykes are almost always in motion, try to discern where the action is going next, and point the camera there. This will give you a better chance of catching the next perfect moment evolving before you.

Have you given up on nighttime shots because when you took pictures of your friends at an evening gathering with your new digital camera the shots were all way too dark? With this problem you do the opposite from what you do to get great shots of kids at play. You decrease your shutter speed-1/15 or 1/30 of a second rather than the standard 1/60 of a second should do it for you. Just remember with a slower shutter speed you need to hold the camera steady and try to use your flash.

The most important thing, though, is to read the manual that came with your camera, and don't be afraid to try out all of the features to see how they work. Also, find others who are interested in learning how to make the most of digital photography. Share tips and go out on picture taking adventures together. You'll be giving other people better tips than these in no time.
