NYC Water Taxi - Way to go!

NYC Water Taxi – Way to go!

Photography is great all year round and summer is a wonderful time to get out there and take amazing photos. Let us look at some summer photography tips and ideas to take photos that you will be proud of.

Firstly, let us make it very clear that having a good camera is great, but if you know what you are doing you will get great shots even with a throwaway camera. In other words, the person behind the camera is just as important as the camera you are using. So, the first tip is to work with what you have.

Travel photography is wonderful, but you do not have to travel far. Right in your neighborhood, town, city and state, there are interesting things to photograph. The second tip is that you do not have to travel far to get great photos. You can photograph at the same location at different times of the day from different angles and so on.

The next thing to note is that you do not need a lot of gear. One camera (take off the lens cover and get a haze filter on it), a zoom lens, a monopod, a diffuser, memory card (class 10 or the fastest speed your camera will take) rechargeable batteries and your charger. Many people have tablets, so if you have one it is much lighter and smaller to carry around so you can always back up your photos at the end of the day or as you go along. That is it for now. Please feel free to post comments and in my next post you will see some photos.
