This year, take along a special travel notebook so you can jot down notes about your holiday memories – funny things the kids said, the bakery with the perfect cakes, or describe the sights, sounds and smells of the vibrant, dramatic sunset. Make sure you can hold onto your holiday for as long as you can by organising all of your summer holiday pictures in one place with a travel photo book. Pick a travel theme, scan mementos, and add personal captions to create a photo book you, and your family will treasure and enjoy the simple pleasures of your holiday again and again.
The beach provides a naturally beautiful canvas, and by simply using a variety of perspectives, you can create extraordinary pictures of your days by the sea. For example, snap a candid shot of your child or loved one unaware and enjoying the beach.
Celebrate the arrival of your little Prince or Princess with personalised photo card birth announcements. Choose a design you love, then add your favourite photo (or photos!) and a personal message. Shop before your baby is born and save the card in your projects folder so that once your bundle of love arrives, all you have to do is add the details. Don’t forget to save one for your baby’s scrapbook, or frame an announcement for the nursery.
Why shoot black and white?
Think of Ansel Adams’ majestic black and white landscapes, and you can appreciate the power that’s possible when you leave colour behind. Use black and white (or monochrome, as it’s also called) techniques to heighten drama and emotion in your photos, to give pictures a timeless quality
