  Don't place your photographic subject dead-centre in the frame with a lot of surrounding space.  Move in close, shift to one side, up or down to make for a much more interesting composition.  
  It is a good practice to use a flash whenever taking photographs of people, even outdoors, especially when they are wearing a hat.  

Use a tripod or other support to support your camera but this will also slow you down to allow you to concentrate on your subject and see it differently.

Photo Clubs in the Ottawa Area

Camera Club of Ottawa
"Now Look Your Prettiest / For The Amateur Photographers Are After You" (Ottawa Evening Journal, Dec 11, 1894.) - Popular photography was still in its infancy when a group of enthusiasts formed the Camera Club of Ottawa in 1894. The organizers set as their objective "...to study and promote the art of photography in all its branches". Although it was a primitive art form at the time, club members soon gained competence and recognition in international salon competition. Today, we maintain that objective.
