Shooting Better People Pictures (Part 7)

Tip 12: Take advantage of great lighting
When you see great lighting, run for your camera and start shooting.

Tip 13: Embrace the unexpected
If something unexpected happens, just keep shooting. The photo that you didn't intend to take often ends up being a keeper.

Tip 14: Keep your friends close
When taking pictures in interesting settings, try keeping your subject close to the camera instead of off at a distance.

Tip: 15: Find the story in the sport
Indoor sports are tough, especially if you don't have a big fancy lens. Leave the action shots to the pros, and focus on the images between (and around) the action. That's where the story lies.
