Some tips we offer our members:

Light: the sunlight at this time of year is generally best in the early morning or near sunset known as the ‘golden hour’.

Composition: look through the lens awhile before pressing the shutter. Is everything balanced?

Focus: is everything in focus?

Post-processing: if using post-processing software do not over-saturate the colours or make them appear unnatural.
