Shooting Great Commander Photos

We all want a masterpiece photo of our beloved Commander, don't we? If you already got one you probably want one more.
 
So how do you get the photo that will talk to your heart as well as impress your friends? You could hope for luck, catching that great photo by chance. Unfortunately good luck happens all too seldom. But shooting that special photo of your boat is not difficult if you abide to some simple guidelines. This is what you will get right here at CommanderClub.com.
 
This set of articles will take you through some basic steps that will dramatically increase your possibilities of shooting great boat photos. You will love the results, especially when you enjoy that photo enlarged and framed on your office wall or in your home. Or why not as one of the 12 chosen photos for this year's CCCC Wall Calendar? 

No Professional Equipment Required!
Most of the advice you will get here are valid regardless if you have simple compact (=consumer) camera, a prosumer camera, or even a semi-professional camera with interchangeable lenses.
 
In the last two articles I will briefly touch upon some technical considerations, but remember, a good photo is only 20% about the camera and 80% about who is behind the camera and his/her ability to abide the the guidelines given here.
 
So let's get cracking! Here is your curriculum:
