Holiday photography: what should we be doing?

Written By On 21 December 2016

We’ve put our heads together to give you these simple yet golden tips for getting perfect holiday photos. Why not try them out and enter your favourites into our Facebook holiday photo competition – you could win an A2 PrintWild canvas prints.

1. Impressed by your hotel room or holiday cottage? Photograph it in the evening with the lights on. This will help eliminate glare coming through the windows and give the space a beautiful inviting glow.

2. Don’t shoot into light. Turn your back to the sun or whichever source of light is near you to reduce glare and improve your image quality.

3. Keep your hands steady! We know you can’t drag your tripod everywhere with you so when you’re too excited to stay still, balance your elbows on bridge railings, tables or lean against a wall and keep your phone or camera straight to get a clear image.

4. Selfie sticks are handy – if you’re not sure whether to trust a bypasser to take a picture of you and your party, these work perfectly. Take advantage of great backgrounds and unusual angles, have fun!

5. Don’t overthink it! While it’s great to compose everything down to the last strand of hair on someone’s face, remember that it’s your holiday. You’ve worked so hard and it’s time to let go and have fun – some of the best pictures are the candid unscripted ones.

So, now you know! Don’t forget to enter the holiday photo competition where you could win an A2 canvas print! We’re loving the entries so far so keep it coming and we’ll see you on the other side of your well-deserved vacation.

Fast, friendly and professional service. From placing the order online to reciving the order, which only took 5 days, I was updated regularly on my order throughout the process. The canvas prints and faceblocks are excellent quality. I highly recommend PrintWild, if your a professional photographer or just want to print some family pics. They are the best! Keep up the great work!

Thank you Printwild for helping me keep and display my memories. Printwild have such a user friendly website and the ordering process was so easy, simply upload your images.I was kept in the loop throughout the entire ordering process so knew when my photos were edited, being printed and ready. The customer service is amazing and the staff are super helpful. All my photos were sent for met to proof before they were printed and i was able to keep some text on one of my images as well. The courier was quick and i was given tracking details to follow my order. The photos arrived and WOW! The magnatots look like glass tiles and the quality of print on both the magnets and photoblocks is crystal clear. i was able to unpack and hang my photoblocks, which i'm now addicted to, straight away. Such wonderful ways of displaying lots of photos in a small space. i love it! Can't wait to put in my next order

As a pro photographer having shot around 500 weddings, it’s extremely important that our brides are happy with their Canvas photos. Every bride as well as other clients have praised the quality of all the products supplied by Printwild 💕 Besides the great products and excellent services, the staff from the top and across all the spectrums, are an absolute delight to deal with and make one feel special. Having dealt with Printwild for over a decade I highly recommend them.
