- Get close to your subjects, especially when using a flash. Large, detailed subjects that fill the frame make for dazzling results.
- Color your world. Bold, unique, crazy colors add to the impact of a Pop 9 photo, repeating in joyous and exceptional patterns. On the other hand, stark, minimal colors can be very striking as well. Try everything!
