The idea of camping is always an exciting one for most of us, and usually, people want to share their experiences and save the wonderful memories of their trip with photos. However, it takes a good photo to portray a god experience. That said, here are a few tips on how to take great camping trip photos.
First and foremost, ensure that the camera is set to the highest resolution as well as quality setting. Ideally, set the white balance in regards to the available light to ensure the ISO is set to the lowest available. If you have a top of the line smartphone, these settings will be automatic, so you don’t have much to worry about. However, if you still want great photos, you may want to keep the following in mind:
Get Close to Nature
Varying elements of nature are always pleasing. Try to fill your frame with things like flowers, water, rock, sand, foliage, etc. A macro shot of a flower can give an entirely different look.
Take Advantage of Dawn and Dusk
Dawn and dusk are by far the best moments to take great photos. Take pictures of sunrise and sunset. The color of the sky changes dramatically during this time and gives an opportunity for great photos. You can even take a picture of your family or friends against the backdrop of a rising or setting sun.
Capture Every Moment
It would be a waste to reserve your camera only when you arrive your camping site. It’s always a good idea to take random photographs throughout the journey. Take shots of you leaving home, in the car, setting up the site, cooking and even when fooling around or having a good time. All this make for memorable photos that tell a story.
