Here at Wyndham, we’re all about living in the moment and making the very most of every holiday experience. A beachfront paradise resort is no place for scrolling through your Facebook feed or checking Instagram – you’ve got all the time in the world for doing that back at home.
Instead, spend your holiday making memories, and capturing them for eternity with the help of a few great photographs.
While you shouldn’t be more focused on snapping pics than enjoying yourself, it’s still important to get a few quality images to remember the holiday by. After all, how else will the grandkids believe that you went skydiving in Cairns, or came face to face with a shark in Fiji? Here are a few top tips for ensuring your photos look great and perfectly capture the moments you want to remember.
The right equipment
The great thing about smartphones is that you’ve always got a decent camera nearby. Even so, there are still a few reasons to take a proper camera on holiday with you – from better quality images through to more specific pieces of equipment. For example, a waterproof camera is great for the beach, where you may not want to risk that brand new iPhone when playing in the surf.
Using a flash may be a good way to brighten up a dark image, but unless you’re a pro, the results will typically look a little bit staged and sterile – not to mention the dreaded ‘red eye’ effect! To get around this, make the most of natural light, whether during the day or at night, to really capture the essence of what a particular destination looks like.
It’s worth taking a bit more time, or asking somebody else to hold the camera so that you can get at least a few nice images that aren’t selfies.
Take your time
It can be tempting to simply snap away at everything remotely interesting that crosses your path on holiday. This might give you an extensive gallery to review when you get home, but the best holiday photos are about quality over quantity. Accordingly, it’s worth taking a bit more time, or asking somebody else to hold the camera so that you can get at least a few nice images that aren’t selfies. This will provide a few photos that are really worth holding onto and remembering the holiday by.
By following these simple tips, you’ll be able to make sure that your holiday snaps are of a high quality, and can sit proudly on the mantelpiece when you get home. To find out more about where you can go and what you can experience with a timeshare holiday, contact Wyndham today.
