Holiday time is here and many of you are going away. Most of you want to document your travels and, for the keen photographers, you want to take this time off to enjoy your holiday photography.

Here are a few tips to get you intentionally recording your holidays to turn your photography into wall art on your return. Make memories that last long after you’re back at work.

Top Tips for Taking Great Holiday Photos:

  1. Get creative, try putting your subject off-centre or challenge yourself with shallow depth of field shots using different aperture settings for your holiday photography.
  2. Zoom into the details, take time to focus on the little things and try filling your frame with your subject.
  3. Get up early, the morning light is beautiful and there’s no one around, you’ll have the world all to yourself.
  4. Look for reflections and other elements to add interest.
  5. Try some night shots. Don’t put your camera away after dark, if you don’t have a tripod then find something to lean on and photograph those Christmas lights!
  6. Try your flash outdoors to fill in when the natural light is harsh.
  7. If you don’t know where to start. Paul Snr recommends creating a holiday photography project for yourself, pick a theme or a subject matter and make a goal to photograph something different these holidays. Or choose one technical challenge per day e.g. experiment with shutter speed one day, and aperture the next.

Enjoy the change of pace this December. Use this time off, the visiting family and change of scenery for holiday photography and to create beautiful images for your walls, and wonderful photo gifts for loved ones in 2015.

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.
