These days, even the most basic printer can produce results that were reserved for professional printers just a few years ago. Improvement in printer technology, ink and of course paper means that no matter whether you are printing purely for the pleasure or you are looking to promote your small business, your printer can open up a whole host of opportunities for you.

Tip 1: Miss the eyes and you’ve missed the shot. Getting the eyes in focus is key to capturing a photo of an animal. It’s human nature to look at the eyes. It’s how we determine emotion and how we connect. When I was in Homer, Alaska, I came across a moose on the move. Given it was early morning and the light was low I knew getting a fast shutter speed to freeze his movement would be tough, so I quickly adjusted my camera to lock the focus on his eyes, and took the shot. The majority of the picture was a bit blurry, but because the eyes are in focus, the shot was saved.
Panning is an interesting technique in photography for showing the feel of motion by freezing a moving subject while adding motion blur to the background. It is particularly very useful when you are capturing fast moving subjects.
