Before you press that shutter button, take a moment or two to consider why you're shooting what you're shooting. Why do you want to take this picture? What's important here? What do you want to remember? How can you photograph this scene so that you capture the mood? After you've thought a bit, start setting up your photo. Look for interesting lines that curve into your image, a path, the shoreline, a fence—use these lines to create the impression of dimension. Photographing people with their bodies or faces positioned at an angle to your camera, rather than looking directly at you, also adds a sense of depth to photos.
