Taking Great Summer Photos

Posted on: May 23, 2008

Do you love taking photos? Have you always had an interest in photography? Do you have a new camera you want to check out? Whatever your reasons for wanting to take photographs, we want to help you with some tips to taking great summer photos with your personal camera.

Summer is fast approaching and what you may not know is that this is one of the best times of year to take photos. Some of the spring flowers are still around and the grass is green and lush. Many people make visits to the beach, sightseeing locations, the mountains and other countries. The children are out of school and usually playing in lawns all across America.

Summer is a fabulous time to take photos but if you want to have the best looking photos possible, you need to know a few tips to taking summer photos. One of the first things you will have to deal with is the sun. The sun is usually bright and beautiful this time of year but taken in the wrong aspect, it can ruin a great photo. Sun creates glare in photos and sometimes completely blocks out what you are trying to take a shot of.

Some things to remember about taking photos in the sun are to always stand with the sun behind the camera and your subject facing the sun. Another option is to get a UV filter for your camera or a UV hood. A hood can help reduce the lens flare that the sun projects onto your photos which is especially bad in the summer.

The best times of day to take outdoor photos in the summer are in the early morning and late evening or night. Taking photos in the middle of a sunny day can lead to overexposure or too much white in your pictures. When you practice with taking summer photos, you will see improvement in your shots over time as they are developed. Then you will learn the right tactics depending on the time of day, the subject and the camera and film that you are using. Have fun!
