Learn & Explore Tip of the Day
Want to get a new lens for your Nikon DSLR, but aren’t sure which one? Do you shoot a lot of sports or wildlife? Then a telephoto zoom might be just the lens for you.
When shooting in bright sand or snow, experiment with the exposure compensation settings (the +/- button) on your camera. Set it for +1 to make the image brighter, which often will make sand or snow look better.
Silhouettes make for great photos and they’re easy to shoot. When photographing a silhouette of a person, position them in profile for a better image.
March is National Scrapbooking Month! Celebrate by taking photos every day and writing down your thoughts about each one—or go all-out and create a scrapbook of the month’s photographs.
Change your white balance during a sunrise or sunset. Take your camera off auto white balance and switch to Cloudy or Shady white balance. This will add more strength to the reds, oranges and yellows. Auto White Balance tries to keep colors neutral.

Carry your camera manual, especially if your camera is new. When traveling you'll probably have a chance to try some new shots. It can also be the time you’re likely to forget the function of a particular button. Or you may just want to explore all the cool things today’s cameras offer.
Experiment with the white balance settings outside. White balance on your camera will alter the color temperature and appearance you get in your picture. For instance, a CLOUDY setting will give your pictures a warmer cast. The FLUORESCENT setting will make your photographs cooler, skewing to a purple cast.
Get creative and add a border to a photo using software on your computer. It will add a different look to the shot.
When traveling abroad, check the power setting and type of plugs. Most modern chargers do both 110 volts (USA) and 220 volts (most of the rest of the world). Check yours, and then pick the right adapter for the plug. Be careful to not use a 110-volt power strip in higher-voltage countries.
