    Here's one that someone told me a long time ago, and it has stuck since.

    "If you want to do something out of the norm, like tilting your horizon? Then do it such that others can be sure that you did it deliberately. Leave no doubt, else it looks like a mistake."

    It depends... Sometimes, flat lighting works well.

    Have to disagree respectfully... There are blurry pictures which work!

    and a serious tip this time round...


    clean your camera and prep up before you shoot. last thing u really want is equipment failure, so check before you leave your house.

    -batteries
    -camera
    -lenses

    clean 1 round with a lens pen first. blow those irritating dust away from sensor.
    check if it works.
    shoot, test, and repeat until satisfied.
