How to take award-winning travel photos using your phone
I just came back from giving a talk to Stylist Live on how to take the best travel photos with your phone. I’m a little tired, but happy it went well and got someÂ good questions, such as ‘what apps do I use for editing pictures’.
YouÂ can read my answer to this, along with other tipsÂ featured on the magazine website:Â http://bit.ly/best_travel_photos_with_phone
Remember, learning about your cameraÂ is the best investment you can make before your travel. But why before and not during, or after?
My previous boss has paid a lot of money for a DSLR camera to capture his family’s best moments as they went on camel riding to the desert. He shot for hours,Â andÂ all he gotÂ was hundreds of overexposed shotsÂ with white faces all over! Oops. He regretted not learning anything aboutÂ hisÂ camera, which somewhat spoiled the experience, let alone this made it forÂ everyone (including the camel) a useless object to carry!
You must haveÂ heard similar stories, or evenÂ have your own versionÂ of the ‘Ohh, I wish I knew what I was doing’! This is why it’s so important to gain more knowledge about your cameraÂ before (and not during, or after) your holiday. Practice, practiceÂ and make all those mistakes at home (cheap!) not on your holiday adventures.
