Dadtography's Top Tips for an Even Better Family Vacation Photo Album
Family vacations (or family holidays for our international audiences) are really what I look forward to every year. I work for my time off.
Over the course of the past five years or so, I've taken nearly 15,000 photos while on vacation. Taking that many photos has taught me a few lessons that I'd like to pass along, so below are my top 5 family vacation photography tips to help you not only take better photos on your trip, but also to enjoy family travel more, too!
Tip #2 - Spend Some Time Editing
I know editing photos can be a pain. Quite frankly, I don't enjoy photo editing either.
But, some photos are meant to be edited and posting them directly to Facebook is really just a travesty.
You don't have to edit every photo you took. My rule of thumb is that I edit about 10 to 25% of the photos I take while on vacation.
Once you're done, hop on to Facebook and post those bad boys into a family vacation photo album and show off all the fun you had!
Tip #4 - Take Turns Playing Photographer
You just got back from your awesome, week-long family vacation. You have hundreds (thousands?) of family photos.
Well, sorta. There's one problem - the photographer isn't in any of them!
It's a great idea to share photography tasks during your trip. Don't have the same person behind the lens every time!
For one, they'll never be in any of the photos, but also, having a different photographer is bound to mean that different types of shots will be taken. Two (or more) perspectives are better than one!
