Vacation Photos

While sightseeing on vacation, try to shoot buildings and landmarks from the side that the sun is on. If you shoot toward the shady side, your camera will adjust its exposure so that the building isn't too dark and then your sky gets washed out. If you shoot from the sunny side, your sky will be bluer.

Don't try to cram as much as you can into you picture and then everything is so small and cluttered looking. For instance, if you are shooting a palace in Europe, get the whole building in the picture for one, but then ask yourself what is it about this building that you think is cool and photograph a tighter shot of it. Maybe it is a neat fountain or a statue or the molding around the windows.
