Still even with something like 30 preset settings, taking control of your focus and flash settings can make a big difference.
If you are not a confident digital camera user you may not be aware that pushing the shutter about halfway down before you take the shot allows the autofocus features, or whatever features you have enabled to do a better job than if you just push the take photo button without that little delay.
Another way to improve your pictures is to make sure your details come out well is to use the flash setting even if you don't think you need it. On today's cameras the autoflash settings are good enough that the camera can often tell for example if there is too much backlighting, even if the sun is out, and you need some front flash so that your images/faces can be clearly seen.
Look at this example (not my wife). Here we see how great a difference there is in the image with and without Flash!
Really unbelievable isn't it?
Of course shutter speeds are getting faster these days which may account for some of the differences in the two photos as well.
Hope you enjoyed it.
Thanks to Nick for finding this picture!
