42nd Street Photo’s Summer Photography TipsPosted on April 19th, 2010
With summer coming quickly around the corner its now time for vacations, sun, beaches, pools, and parties. We are going to provide a few tips that will help you the most, so get your camera ready!
Don’t pack too much. When packing your camera and accessories don’t overdo it. Pack your camera, batteries, tripod and memory card. Remember to take a new package of batteries and to erase your memory cards.
Get out and take shots. Take pictures of the beach, sunrises, sunsets, and the culture you are enjoying. Don’t limit yourself, take pictures of the food, drinks, and the people around you.
Be Creative. Take photos from different angles and use different techniques.
Get up Close. When people are the focus get in close. If you are shooting your family or friends from head to toe, make sure you don’t leave much room above and below to maximize them in the composition. Cameras with a macro lens help to achieve a closer focus with clarity.
Pay close attention to the horizon and make sure it’s level. Crooked horizons can distort the most beautiful summer pictures. Utilize camera features such as on-demand grid lines.
Time of Day. Try to get your photos in the hour or two before sunset or just after sunrise, when the light is not so strong. If you find yourself pulling out the camera in the middle of a sunny day, try to face away from the sun.
These are just a few tips for summer photography. We thank you for stopping by and have a great summer!
