Here are six tips to improve your photography and bring the best out of your holiday experience.

  • Framing – use a tree or an object in shot to 'frame' your picture when possible
  • Change orientation – a portrait shot can work well at times, especially alley ways, narrow streets or around tall buildings
  • Panorama - Try a Panorama shot occasionally
  • Zoom - Zooming in closer than usual using an optical lens can greatly enhance photos in certain situations
  • Include people in your shot – Not every monument or landmark looks ok by itself. You don't want one random with a camera in front of you, but keep an eye out for a natural candid shots where others are enjoying day also
  • Practice makes perfect – if using a digital camera especially, take as many photos as you can. Then pick the best ones to improve online and print when home
