It’s that time again when we start thinking about holidays and our cameras or phones. Of course, the whole concept of how we use our holiday photos has changed dramatically over the last couple of years. Fundamentally, we still like to show our friends and family an album of our holiday but instead of prints, we now upload an album to Facebook galleries. This is fine but the basics should remain the same. An album should be regarded as a story – in this case, the story of our holiday. To really captivate the viewers interest, the photos should be compelling to the viewer. I personally tend to photograph the location and minimise the number of photos I take of our group. In years to come, it’s nice to remember the way we looked way back when, but not every photo needs to show this. I see too many pictures of my friends either too small in the pictures, or in an area that doesn’t portray the location which after all, is the whole point of the story. Too often faces are very dark or too blown out by the sun, so here are a few tips.
