As a newish Photographer I have to constantly remind myself to step in and get a little closer to my subjects. It really pays off when you fill the whole (or most) of the frame.
See this is a lovely picture of flowers in my garden. Nothing spectacular and certainly not something I would blow up and put on my wall.
Zoomed in a little more. Getting better, but not quite there yet.
Now this one I like. If you don't have a zoom lens just make your feet the zoom.
This one is nice too.
Remember the old Wrigley Gum commercials when you get and and shoot. "Get a little closer, don't be shy." Your pictures will look better and you will get lots more oohs and ahhhhs.
