5 Things to ask yourself before you trip the shutter

Below is a link to a good article on the five things to think about before you trip the shutter.

The five things are:

1. Is my Shutter Speed correct to capture my subject properly?
2. Is my selected Focal Length or my Positioning optimal to capture my subject?
3. Have I chosen the proper Depth of Field to best highlight my subject?
4. Is my subject in Focus?
5. Have I checked the Edges of my frame to minimize distracting elements?

More details on each point in the article below

Five things to ask yourself

It is not always easy to get all these things right. I didn't have time to check my edges before pushing the shutter release. Sometimes it is more important to get the shot.
