December holidays are here. People usually go on holiday to visit family, friends or to just get away. What to do with those holiday photos? Well, there are many ways to get creative with some lovely images.
Let’s start with the photograph you are going to take. Make sure that the subject you are going to photograph is well lit. Ideally, the light source should come from behind you onto the subject.
Next, try and compose your shot properly. You don’t want to be too far from the subject so that it looks insignificant in the photograph. If you are too close then you could end up with lens distortion. Also, keep the camera level with the horizon. A camera in a cell phone is also a camera. Today’s cell phones are usually capable of taking excellent shots if done correctly.
The biggest problem with taking photographs is camera shake. If you hurry the shot you will stand a good chance of ending up with a blurred photo. This is as a result of a slight movement whilst pressing the shutter button. So, when composing your shot you need to pay special attention to keep everything dead still whilst taking the shot. That even means holding your breath for a moment. It’s that important. This all comes with practice.
Okay, so say you have some really cool pictures from your holiday. It’s time to head over to a shop that prints photographs so that you can add them to your album. If you are in the Kempton Park area you could choose to visit Goodies in Vlei Street, Glen Marais.
As you enter the premises and park your vehicle you will notice two shops right next to each other. Foto Connect does photo printing and Absolute Frame does picture framing. Talking about convenience!

While you wait for prints you can stroll down to Goodies Restaurant for a delicious meal or spend some time in Goodies Sports Bar enjoying something cold. There's also a delightful place to buy meat called Busch-Man Butchery. Which proves what I've said before that Goodies has so much to offer. Why not support them?
