Camera House : Better Pictures 7
Feature happy holidays According to Darran, “photography and travel go hand in hand”. “We live in such a great age where we can shoot digital images and instantly review them in camera. We can transfer them to other devices to look at and send them around the world. Our company combines over 50 years of travel experience, photographic passion, great itineraries to amazing locations and the ability to optimise a small group of photographers to shoot unique images. A small group photo tour is guaranteed to offer more photo opportunities and the chance to learn not only from a seasoned professional, but the combined experience of the group.” With summer coming up most of the nation gets set to pack up for holidays, so what’s Leal’s best advice for capturing those magic moments on camera? “K.I.S. - Keep It Simple – is our company motto. In an era where it seems many new photo educators are suggesting complex and difficult ways to shoot and process your images, I suggest the opposite. In fact the same base principles of photography apply across the board. My suggestion is that you start with the basics, keep it simple and grow your creative interests over time.” His idea of a great holiday snap is to “use your framing option to tell a story”. Leal says to zoom in “ to cut out unwanted aspects and get in tight on the key point of interest”. Importantly don’t forget to add yourself into the photo! “Use your self-timer with a tripod (a table or similar will also work) or ask someone else in the group to shoot for you.” ■ Darran is the owner of World Photo Adventures.
