Spring break should be synonymous with taking photographs and travel. Capturing those moments when you are on outings by yourself or with the kids, family at the places you visit. For me I always like to squeeze a little day trip or two, sometimes even a full trip during this time of year. I am just hoping the weather the next few days clears up from rainy to go on our planned outing to the botanical gardens, then maybe the beach again! Right now the rain has arrived so we are catching up on movies and playing games today. But, I thought I would share some photographs today of the last outing we took,  along with some simple tips for capturing your moments with photography!

Simple Tips For Capturing Moments With Photography; 

Collecting Beach Treasures, Hand with sea shells and rocks, Theresa Huse 2013-03228

Look to those simple moments when they show you a flower they picked, some sea shells they collected or when they hug or kiss someone they are excited to see. Even use your own hands & take a shot of you holding a flower. Practice taking shots close up.

Look for places in nature or where you are visiting to capture their portrait. Not only will you have a memory of the place, but now you have a portrait of them specific to the place & age they are at the time.

Keep it simple by always having your camera ready by carrying it with a strap or wrist strap. At a moments notice you’ll be able to capture that unexpected moment. Sammie was walking along the shoreline watching waves and while looking for sea shells she was collecting a wave rolled in a little closer than she expected getting her all wet.

Taking several shots of those moments you can edit , which ones you keep and which ones you don’t want. Her sister’s dog photo bombed the photo which you can see his nose edited out below. Remember it’s always fun to put together a collage of those moments too! Taking lots of photos is a great way to improve. You can see what worked and what didn’t work with your settings or your focal point, which I will talk about another day.

Good photos need good photo editing; 

You don’t need Adobe PhotoShop LightRoom or PhotoShop to edit photos there are many online photo editors out there here are a few you might like to try. Of course if you can afford the other programs and are serious about photography those are two programs worth getting! 

I hope this gets you started with capturing moments in your photography and photo editing. Or helps you with your blogging photographs! I have resources on the side bar too, which I highly recommend! 

When was the last time you took out your camera?
