Tip #2 – Turn off your flash!
Flash can blow out details in your photographs. Look at the texture in the top picture vs. the bottom picture, the one where on-camera flash was used. Notice the detail in the bricks, the barrels & the chairs in the top photograph. Carefully consider the impact that flash will make on your photographs – more often your pictures will benefit from turning off your flash.
