Hints for taking good photos

Use a good camera. Disposables are convenient, but pictures taken through cheap lenses are usually not suitable for reproduction.
The higher the resolution and larger the size of digital photos, the better the chances of winning.
Try to capture smiling faces without sunglasses! Eyes and smiles help contribute to winning pictures.
