Here are some tips to perfect that holiday picture:

1. A good quality camera goes a long way

The pictures you take help you remember great moments in your life for a lifetime, so the better the quality the more enjoyable they will be to look at over time.


2. Lighting

There is nothing worse then getting home and you can’t see the beautiful smile on your friends and family’s face because you took the picture in bad lighting. Play around with your camera settings before you head on holiday, so you know which are best for daylight and how to shoot at night. If shooting in the daylight watch for shadows on faces.


3.The perfect picture isn’t perfect

The best holiday snaps are often the candid moments. Whether it’s the little ones first time at the beach and they decide sand would be a tasty treat or uncle bob chasing the kids around the lawn these are the moments you will look back and laugh about. Have the camera with you wherever you go and be ready to snap when a candid moment arrives.


4.Take a tripod

Whether you travelling as a couple or a family its sometimes hard to get the whole group in the image. Taking a tripod and setting the camera to self-timer means no one misses out! It also means you don’t have to rely on strangers to get that happy snap.


5.Take multiple images of the same photo

This one is particularly important if you have people in the picture. Someone might blink, the kids scratch their face and the list goes on. The more times you take it the more chances you will have to get everyone looking decent.


A final tip is to print your vacation images. These days digital devices dominate our lives. Printing out your pictures and framing them around the house is a great way to reminisce of the wonderful times had and sometimes the motivation you need to plan that next getaway.

Happy Holidaying! We look forward to seeing your spectacular images!
