1. Auto Mode Won't Cut itIt may seem daunting to make the switch, but you really have to learn to shoot in Manual Mode to get the most out of your camera. This means you know how to change your f-stop (aperture), shutter speed, and ISO to expose your subject properly without letting the camera decide for you. Watch this video about why you should make the switch to manual now.
2. Switch to RAWYour camera has the option of shooting your images at a higher quality that gives you more leverage in your editing. You're probably familiar with the default setting of shooting in JPG, but shwitching over to RAW will allows you to make dramatic adjustments to the image should they need to be fixed or improved in post processing. Watch this video that explains all the benefits of shooting in raw.
3. Edit Your ImagesThere's a noticeable difference between people who slap up images straight out of camera and ones who take the time to make them look great with that little extra edit. You can do so many incredible things with the editing software these days that the bar for awesome images has been raised pretty high. But most of the time all your images need is a nice color pop, contrast kick, and maybe some sharpening to look top notch. Learn how to make your photos nicer without going overboard on weird photoshopping effects that seem to be a beginner's trend.
