-5 Tips for taking better photos of people

Everyone loves to have a good photo of themselves on vacation. However, when you get home why does it always seem like there is only one good one out of a thousand?

You can take wonderful photos if you know some small tips.

1. Don’t put your neckline on the horizon

4. Don’t tilt the camera.
