Bon Voyage!

Travel photography is really all about the joys of travelling. It’s about taking the time to look around and find the elegant beauty in the simple things of a foreign place.

Looking up and seeing this interesting roof scene captures a very different, yet equally captivating depiction of Bermuda.

When it comes to travel photography try keeping it simple, like how you would enjoy a relaxing vacation. Sometimes the most interesting photographs of a destination are of the less typical scenery.

So while you’re out travelling this summer keep this in mind!

Happy shooting!

Summer Days

Summer is officially here and the heat is starting to rise. It’s time to break out the ice cold lemonade and SPF 50 sunblock. Sometimes the only way to beat the heat on a summer afternoon is to just take a run through the sprinklers. Thanks to the Stewart family for having some fun with us and really capturing the spirit of summer.

Here are a few tips to get some great summer shots:

  1. When shooting outdoor portraiture try using a flash to fill in harsh sunlight shadows.
  2. Keep your camera in a cool place! Don’t leave it to bake in the sun on the dashboard of your car.
  3. Just as you wear sunglasses and baseball caps to protect your eyes, for a little extra shade use a lens hood or a UV filter for your camera.
  4. Make sure to compensate for the deep shadows and bright highlights you get from the noon-time sun.

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”
 American writer, Henry James

Happy shooting; stay cool!
