What can I do to insure interesting photographs in my newsletter?
By following a few simple suggestions, you'll be taking photos you can be proud to publish in your newsletter!
Begin by investing in a 35mm camera that has autofocus and a zoom lens (a range of 35mm to 70mm) - this will accommodate most of your photographic needs. Any brand of film will work, but it's best to use a black and white film such as Kodak Tri X (or similar) with a film speed of ISO 400 - this will allow you the greatest flexibility in lighting situations.
Then, visualize your picture through the lens before you click! Imagine what the finished photo will look like and try to eliminate as much distracting background as possible. This special effort will help you get the pictures needed to attract your audience.
