The weekend is the perfect time to get creative and go out and about with your camera.
Whether it is walking around your town, along the coast or the countryside, all are great for getting some practise in with your camera.
A few things to try:
- Try different angles and perspectives is a great idea as this is about experimentation rather than a great photo. Though if you get one that’s just an added bonus.
- Shot in black and white or with one color, if your camera allows.
- Play around with your shutter speed.
- Use a tripod and capture motion using a slow shutter speed.
Go out for a walk for an hour or so and take some pictures.
Once you are home from your walk it is time for more fun to begin. Load your images into Smart Photo Editor and play around with the effects, or creating your own.
