There are no rules in Photography that are put in stone. However there are many things that you can do to make them look better. If you look at a professional Photographer's portfolio, you will notice that they all (or most of them) have these 7 things in common. These things are basic if you know a lot about Photography, however if you don't, pay good attention to this post.

These are not in a particular order, but I will tell you which one is most important at the end.

1. Try to make your shutter speed twice as fast, as your lens length in mm. This gives you the best chance of sharp pictures. There is nothing worse than unsharp pictures!

2. Whenever possible use a tripod. If it isn't possible use a monopod, and if even that isn't possible (museum) put your elbows onto something to help you keep the camera still. The 3. thing on this list is also really useful.

3. Take a lot of pictures. The profession photographers take lots of pictures, but they only show their very best shots. That's exactly what you should be doing.

4. Use the rule-of-thirds. What the rule-of-thirds means is that if you would cut the pictures into nine parts, the main subject is at one of the places where two lines collide.

5. When you have your pictures on your computer, first get rid of all the unsharp ones. Then get rid of the ones that are sharp but not good. And go down the list until you have your best 15 pictures left. Only edit these 15 pictures and once you have edited them decide witch pictures are the best.

6. Shoot in aperture-priority mode. If you want to have a really fast shutter-speed set your aperture to the lowest your lens allows. Also if your taking sports shots and shoot shutter-priority and the light changes, you could suddenly be at a faster shutter-speed ensuring sharp pictures.

7. Use ND Grads and polarisers. ND grads make the sky a lot darker and then fade seamlessly. Polarisers on the other hand do exactly what sun-glasses do. They make the sky a darker stronger blue and also let you see-through the glare on the water a bit.

So there are 7 things to look out for when you are taking pictures. I think the most important is number 4. I always use the rule of thirds when I compose my pictures. The least important but still useful is number 7.
