They’re not cutting edge.
They’re not even hard to find.
But they are indispensable for better photos.
This month we round up three of the most boring ways to improve your photography.

• showing a hint of motion in the water and oars while keeping the boat and background crisp?

It was a disaster! (photo below is from another shoot…)
This month’s edition of the Exposed! photo newsletter offers photo tips to help you manage your festive duties, take better photos and avoid common pitfalls…”
