Take Good Pictures

STEPS
TOOLS

Any camera, that is of a basic ability an standard will be fine. I recommend that you spend more than £60, but no more than a couple of hundred pounds (form personal experience)

(ignore blurry ness!)  adding simple effects to your pictures can make them so interesting, there are lots of photo editing apps to help you out there.

A cute moment can also make for a good photo, although it is blurry, my hamster was wondering what the camera was!

Nothing can make a 'good photo' it is from the photographers point of view. In my opinion, if the photographer likes it, it is a good photo.

I know that this guide is not very descriptive or anything... But I was just trying to get the point across that you do not need to buy a £500 camera to take a good photo.

The camera I used for the photos, it was about \u00a3150, quite expensive but considering in under a year I have taken over 6000 photos on it, well worth it!
