Photo Tips

Photos are one of the most important components of Columbia magazine, and the editorial staff relies almost solely on readers to fill the pages of "Knights in Action" with images of council activities. However, the vast majority of photos that we receive are not usable because they are not editorially appealing — they are posed or blurry or simply poor quality. Compelling photos, on the other hand, always catch the eyes of our editors and represent a council's best chance of having its activity published in the magazine.

So what makes a good photo? Watch the slide show below for some tips on what to do and what not to do when you bring your camera to a K of C event.
