Winter has come and as you pack your
bags to go on a vacation, take a minute or two and read the following points to
make your family and friends look great in the holiday photographs.
While you relax, don’t miss out on the scenic
beauty of the place. Every place- a busy city, a remote village, or a secluded
resort on the countryside, has a different aura. Take the changing weather
shots: broken clouds,
overcast days and partial sun can turn a regularly photographed area into one
with a highly unique perspective. Include the weather, sun and clouds in your
photos to give a sense of location to your shots.
forget the people- When you’re out traveling to new and exciting locations with
your camera, it’s really easy to get diverted and forget about the most
important aspect of your holiday: the people that came with you, your friends
and family. Click a bunch of weird selfies. Don’t forget the group photos,
because 10 years from now you would definitely want to remember how each one
them looked at that time and that place.
Capture the Candid Moments- Along with the
mainstream posed images, try capturing things as they’re happening.
Concentrate on the details: With vacation
photos, we are always tempted to take photos of the huge mountains, the vast
ocean and the blue sky- but we often miss out on the small things- small
animals, unique flower petals, or even the textures of rock. Even if these
things can be found in your backyard. Click!
somewhere you’ve never been before, capturing the tiniest details has a way of
making the trip seem that much more interesting when you’re showing the
pictures off to your friends and family.
your shutter speed: To avoid a blurry photo and camera shake, adjust your
shutter speed above 1/80th sec. If you are shooting movement or you
are shooting, sitting a moving bus or car, then try to stay way above 1/80th
sign in your photo: Includes sign boards, store signage, bus tickets, prices of
fruits and vegetables, restaurant bills, anything which add to your vacation
story. Signs bring character and personality to pictures taken while on
Always carry extra memory cards and backup. You
wouldn’t want your camera flashing the “MEMORY FULL” message just when you are
about to capture an epic moment on reel.
Make your vacations memorable, as you capture the best of
events. Happy Holidays!
