It’s rather difficult to fine tune artificial lighting, but luckily, the white balance feature on your camera is here to save the day.

Always keep charged batteries in your camera. Digital cameras are power hungry, and the batteries do not last long. They especially use power with the LED screen in use. Make sure they are charged fully before you start shooting. Another option is to keep a few fresh batteries in your camera’s carrying case so you never miss anything.
Always take a few notes while you take pictures. Whenever you go back and view the vast number of photos you have taken, you may not remember where and when some of them occurred. Buy a small notebook to write down all your information on the photos. Number your photographs, and write this number down in the notebook next to the description of that photograph.
Move closer to your subject when you are taking the photograph. You do not want the pictures to come out and not be able to see the subject or have things in the background take attention away from the subject. Move closer to give your shots vivid clarity.
When you have your shot lined up and it is time to hit the shutter button, stop breathing for a moment and don’t move a muscle. Movement will cause your photo to be blurred. Take a second before you hit the shutter to straighten the shot and hold your breath.
