Looking back at some of my photos and video from my recent trip I realize just how little talent my wife and I have when it comes to photography. I know practice makes perfect but what can you do in the mean time? I had thought we were prepared for anything but we missed a great shot of a moose because we had the camera not as accessible as we could have. We learned that shooting video is not as easy as one thinks. Starting and stopping the film too early or too late. Moving the camera to fast or frequent zooming can really mess up your film. A great shot can become terrible if the photographer had an unsteady hand, shaking video is a waste of film. A tripod is perfect for holding the camera steady but then there is the time consuming set-up. I have learned that your visit is only a short time but the film you get will last much longer taking the extra time for set-up could be critical for the quality of what you capture on film.
I know that an internet search can provide many useful camera tips, but it would be nice to see some tipís on this site. I am sure many others besides myself could use some advice. Please feel free to shine in and share your wisdom.
