Who doesn’t want to have great photo memories of their cruise vacation? Nowadays everyone has access to video and photo technology that our parents couldn’t even dream of. It was not long ago when taking good quality picture required a cumbersome, complicated and expensive SLR camera, not to forget you had to carry rolls of 35mm film with you. But with the current technology one can take the best pictures even with their smartphones, here are some cool tips for how to take good pictures on a cruise.
Surprisingly, this is one of the least valuable tips for getting good pictures. Everyone nowadays owns a smartphone and all of the phones these days have built-in cameras with good picture capturing capabilities. But if you are pictureacholic, then there is nothing in this world that can compare with the picture quality of a DSLR. Additionally, what’s important is that whatever camera you use you must have full knowledge of it.
The word photography is derived from the Greek word that means “drawing with light”. So when you want to take good pictures, you need to understand how light impacts the quality of your photos. For example, you will get the best quality photos outdoor on a cloudy day or under a tree shade on a bright sunny day.
One of the biggest problems people have reported with their photos is the blurry pictures. The main reason for blurry pictures is when the camera is moved slightly while taking the picture. Even breathing while taking a picture can cause the camera to move. If you understand what causes a blurry image, you can easily adjust it with your photography techniques.
Most cameras, even the pocket digital cameras, allow you to manually select from a variety of different shooting “modes”. Modes are selected by using a Mode Dial on top of the camera, or from a menu on the camera’s screen. These modes adjust the camera setting in your phone based on the type of picture you are trying to shoot.
