  • Capture images that have impact and are well exposed.
  • Control depth of field (sharpness over a range of distance).
  • Control perspective (relationship between background and foreground).
  • Optimise images for printing.
  • Your DSLR with batteries fully charged and plenty of space on its memory card.
