    This fun 'surfing in the outback' photo was taken on the banks of the Cooper Creek near Innamincka Eastern Central Australia close to where we were camping.

  • Take many photos of the same area then you will have lots of photos to choose from. Take photos from different angles, heights and at different times of the day.
  • Try taking a series of photos at exactly the same place like beaches, parks, a harbour, shops or from a balcony every daylight hour on the same day and you will have an interesting series of photos with the changing movement, changing weather and daylight.
  • Take some vertical pictures for variety, waterfalls, tall buildings, up or down stairways, people etc.

    This photo of 'Buley Rockholes' in Litchfield National Park in the Northern Territory is a great example for a vertical photo as the area is narrow but with depth.

  • When you are outdoors use the flash to brighten up faces that maybe shadowed on sunny or cloudy days to make them stand out from the background.
  • One of my favourite digital camera tips is to take a series of photos of a common theme that interests you in your travels.

    Like animals, birds, beaches, outback pubs, signs, restaurants, sunrises and sunsets, unusual plants or beautiful gardens, historic buildings, water ways, National Parks etc.

  • When taking pictures of people cloudy days are better, bright sunlight is very harsh it usually causes shadows and squinting.
  • For great photos of kids and pets get down to their eye level so you can really capture the sparkle in their eyes and their cute smiles.
  • For taking photos of very small things like insects, sea creatures or flowers use the macro setting, you will amazed at the detail.
  • Put the horizon in the bottom third of the frame and let the sky dominate the photo.
  • For great sunrise and sunset pictures use the long shadows and amazing colours that occur during the early and late hours of the day.

  • Using a tripod helps hold the camera steady or lean against a solid object.
  • Including a silhouette in your photo can add some depth and perspective. Turn off the camera's flash and add a silhouette in the foreground like a person, rocks or trees etc.
  • When photographing kids, animals or pets wait for the right moment and take several quickly.

  • The weather can play a big part when taking pictures, work with the weather conditions to take some amazing photos.
  • Clear mornings and nights can produce beautiful sunrises and sunsets, a misty day can produce photos that have a bit of mystery about them, sun shining between clouds can make a spectacular backdrop.
  • Each season also brings with it different characteristics like stunning colours in Autumn, new growth in spring, cold weather or snow in winter and beautiful sunny days and outdoor activities in summer.

Digital cameras are excellent for taking great instant photos to keep on your computer or to print. Digital cameras also can take very practical photos for when your are travelling or on holidays.
