Take Great Vacation Photos With Your Smartphone

Heading out of town for Spring Break? When precious suitcase space is limited, don’t worry about packing your fancy DSLR camera to take great pictures. You can take professional-looking pictures right from your smartphone with these tips!

Prepare In Advance

Before you leave for your destination, make sure you have plenty of space on your iPhone for pictures. Use the Picture Keeper Connect to backup all of your images and clear memory for new ones. Pop the Picture Keeper Connect in your bag to free up space whenever you need it during your trip – no wifi needed!

Include People In Your Pictures

If you come across a stunning landscape scene, such as a photo of a beach shoreline or sunset, it can be difficult to convey that beauty in a photo. You need a focal point or subject to make the picture pop. Putting a person in the photo is the perfect fix.

Think Small

You’ll probably come across tons of panoramic scenes or wide landscape shots, but focusing on some small details can tell a great story as well. Consider focusing on one bin of fruit from a farmer’s market, a single sea shell at the beach, or a colorful doorway. These kinds of shots work best when you fill the entire frame with the subject.

Keep It Casual

Come up with a list of shots you’d like to take before you embark, but feel free to take photos that strike your fancy during your travels as well. If a flower or random sidewalk bistro captures your attention, shoot away. The whole point of vacation shots is to capture the memories, so let your heart decide what’s photo-worthy and what you’ll want to remember in the future.
