As the name suggests, helicopter parenting involves a close watch on the toddler’s activities. Nicknamed as ‘Overparenting’, such a style may include excessive protection and control when it’s actually not required. The term became popular long time back and was introduced in the dictionary in 2011. It applied to parents who are particular about what their children are up to even when they are mature enough to carry out the tasks.

Follow the rule of thirds. Photos look better when the view is not placed in the center. For instance, if you would be clicking panoramic beauty then align it along with a grid, a mesh of vertical and horizontal lines. It splits the screen into 9 equal squares and sections. Well, the adjustment differs from subject to subject. While horizons can be aligned either to the bottom or top third line, position a foreground subject along the right or left third lines. Take a snap always from the eye level. With this logic in mind, you should change the viewing angle accordingly. It …
