How do you know when your composition is right, and when to press the shutter? I am never sure if I'm getting the best shot?

My yoga teacher asked whether I could take some pictures of her for her website. But when I did she didn't like the way some of her poses looked. I have offered to take some more but am scared she's not going to like these either. Please help!

Why do you use 800 ISO and shoot jpegs, when on so many websites for beginners everyone says to shoot raw, and to keep the ISO down?

You always seem to use your trusty 70-200mm f2.8 lens, and I love mine too, but people on forums keep saying that I should use primes because "that is what the pro's use".

How do I photograph family shots with a tiny baby, under 4 months old & unable to support it's own head?
Wendy Sykes, York UK
One thing I just can't understand - how can everything be in focus (in landscape photography) at say F16 - F22 but yet recently when I was shooting a landscape in low light someone told me to go to way lower F/nr than F16 as "there's no need to be up there, you need more light now" - I thought the lower the F/nr the less detail in the photo would be in focus so why would I want that for a landscape shot?
It's so easy to take lots of great photos, but at the end of the day, you need to get them off your computer and show them off!
Step 9 - Keep yourself inspired and motivated
Creative people need constant inspiration and motivation. If you keep doing the same thing, you are likely to get bored and stuck in a rut.
Taking great portrait pictures just got even easier! IPhones have made photography accessible to a whole new generation of creative people. It's so easy to shoot with your phone, and so much fun when you get instant results!
You can take your pictures and adjust them on your phone within a matter of seconds, or just leave them as they are. I shoot with my iPhone everyday, because it's always with me. And I often add some iPhone shots into my professional shoots too.
Ask those little things about photography that have been niggling you!! I don’t know the meaning of life but I do know a lot about taking pictures so ask away!
