Do a digital photography course
Capturing moments comes down to more than the device you’re using. A great photograph takes skill and an eye for detail. If you’ve got time before you go, be sure to enrol in a short digital photography course. This way at the end of your journey you’ll have photos you‘ll want to show off for years to come.
Before your trip, jump on pinterest.com and create destination boards using other photographers as inspiration. This will give you a feel for where to go and what to expect.
The early bird gets the best shots
Get up early on your holidays, the best lighting can often be found at sunrise! Not only will those photos look amazing but you’ll also get opportunities to capture popular destinations without tourists getting in the way.
Go above and beyond
It’s great to get immersed in your place of travel. Given the opportunity, be sure to go outwards and upwards! This will allow you to get those breath-taking birds eye views of your destination.
Protect your device
It’s devastating to lose photo memories so be sure to back-up your photos. Great waterproof and shockproof covers are available for most devices. If you’re prone to Murphy’s Law, be sure to cover your items with travel insurance.
Don’t forget life’s experiences can’t be fully lived through a lens. Leave the camera behind, take time to be in the moment and become engaged with the culture!
