These Three Things Will Make Your Holiday Snaps Look Dead Professional
Your happy snaps are about to go pro thanks to Dr Chris Brown
There's nothing quite so inspirational as packing your bags and heading off into the wild blue yonder.
Indeed, the only downside of taking a break is that sooner or later it must come to an end (insert sad face here). Our advice - ensure you take plenty of truly awesome snaps so that you can keep the holiday vibe going long after you return.
And this is where the good news comes in. Turns out that breathtaking pics can be achieved by making some very minor changes to your regular technique.
Consider a tripod
Sure, it seems like something only professionals might need, but Dr Brown says a solid foundation for your camera will result in snaps that are 100 percent more professional-looking thanks to their super sharp focus.
"It really is worth carrying one with you at all times," says Dr Brown.
Use a wide angle lens
This will give you the opportunity to shoot from a distance - something that is recommended when snapping anything that involves risk - such as wild animals.
Try different angles
It's easy to just want to snap what you see, but your photography will likely be even more impressive if you experiment a little. Try shooting from above, or while lying low. Stand to the side of your subject.
All of these options will produce dramatically different results.
