One thing that never changes is that our behaviours and habits are shaped by the technology we use. Motor vehicles were introduced to a world without highways, petrol stations, or mechanics, and the world changed to accommodate the new technology within a few years. This sort of adjustment happens on a smaller, more personal scale every time someone adds a piece of new technology to their home or office life.
Even something as simple and common as holiday photos being turned into canvas prints online has fundamentally changed our options when it comes to enjoying and sharing our holiday photos. However, habits often lag a few years behind technology. Here are a few tips and tricks you might have missed concerning holiday and travel photography.
Canvas Prints Online = No Waiting
There was a time when developing and printing your holiday photos was an activity that had to wait until you returned from your trip. A lot of people, even younger people, remained trained to do this by their memories – they take a ton of photos and then they return home and forget to do anything else. Months go by, the photos get buried under more photos on their phones or digital cameras, and if two or three are eventually transformed into canvas prints online for the wall, it’s a miracle.
Instead, review your photos every night, and choose one or two to submit for printing. Not only does this mean you won’t forget or delay in immortalising your holiday, but your prints might even be waiting for you when you get home – a nice surprise to walk in from a trip and immediately have the memories of your experience right there.
Use Image Search
Did you know you can search on images using search engines? You can, and the results are surprisingly accurate. What this means is that when you’re looking for the perfect holiday photo subject for your wall at home, you can start off by searching images already out there of your holiday destination. Look for some really great shots, find out where they were taken – then go there and get your own photos!
The beauty of this modern approach is that it takes a little of the randomness out of holiday photos, without ruining the possibility of spontaneity. You can look for images people have uploaded that appeal to your own personal sense of style, and then go tweak the approach so your photo is completely unique and 100% ‘you.’ All the technology does is speed up your selection process.
Modern technology makes a lot of things better – including your holiday photos, from selecting subjects, framing the photo, and then turning them into great wall art. When you’ve use these techniques to get amazing travel photos, click here and we’d be glad to turn them into incredible wall art.
