Are you the type of person who takes pictures of everything when on vacation? I have to admit that I am like that. In fact, my husband sometimes gets embarrassed when I take pictures of even the food we eat. My reasoning is that I want to remember every little detail years down the road and I find nothing wrong with snapping pictures all the time.
However, if you really want to make the most out of those photographs, then you might want to exercise a bit of discernment. I found a great article on this topic written by Doug Newcomb. Let’s take a look at some of them.
Decide what kind of camera you need.
If you are like me and you do not pay much attention to the technical aspects of photography, a point and shoot should do. I don’t really find much need for a high tech camera when I am not going to fiddle around with the settings anyway. However, if you do need the intricate features, then you might want to bring a better camera for your trip.
Make sure you have enough storage.
If you take pictures of practically everything, make sure that you have enough space on your memory card. If you do not have a big enough card, then you might want to consider other options. If you are bringing a laptop along, then you should be fine. If not, then you might want to consider online storage. However, this option may not be the best due to varying Internet speeds. More so, sometimes you cannot get the full size of your photos after you upload them to the Internet.
