One of the best ways to remember a family vacation is through photographs. Think monuments with family members posed around them, pictures of unique places that document your family’s travels, pictures of people you met and got to know from other places while on vacation. All achieved with the click of your shutter button.
Make your photos memorable through proper composition and incorporate as many techniques of higher composition as you can to achieve personal, unique, and spontaneous photos. Prepare for your photos through thinking of framing, placing people, lighting, and available scenery.
Look for places of interest through brochures, the web, or hire a local guide to show you around off the beaten path. Don’t stress about weather ruining your photos when you get there, rethink lighting, perspective, etc to overcome and compensate. Use the cloudy lighting setting to brighten up your photos.
