Today's Photo Super Power is how to shoot sharp images. Chris says that the higher the resolution camera you have, the easier it is to register the slightest movement due to camera shake. So you have to retain yourself to shoot better to get those sharper images.

1) During shooting, use a higher shutter speed.
2) Learn to focus well. Sometimes the camera will make a bad choice, so focusing manually can help, or use the focus point. If your camera has a touch screen, use it.
3) Depth of field. Shoot with a larger aperture.

Every week Chris mentions how a picture "tells a story." But how do you do that? That's the topic of this week's Photographic Super Powers. There are at least three ways to tell a story in your image. First, contrast. Contrast can give people something to think about as the image provides a comparison. Old vs. new, bright vs. dark, etc. Contrast draws your attention and makes an image really interesting.
