Top tips for taking great holiday photos 26 Aug 2014
Consider using your Flash – If the bright summer sun casts shadows across your subject, using the extra light from your flash can diminish them. This also works to light up a face if the sun is behind your subject.
Moving target? – Use the ‘sports mode’ on your digital camera if it has one or switch to a higher ISO and faster shutter speed. This will help to ‘freeze’ the movement.
Fill your Frame – Move in close to your subject to fill the frame and give your photo more impact by losing background distractions.
Create silhouettes – Pointing your camera into the sun and crouching down to your childrens’ level can make stunning silhouettes of your children playing.
Finally if the weather is dull, spice your image up by finding a bright colour in your subject. This will bring your photo to life.
