As promised, the third article in the Photo Tips series! This one will look at some basics of video.
Whether it’s with a smartphone a compact digital camera or a full size DSLR, pretty much everyone has video capabilities at their fingertips today. And a lot of people are taking advantage of that to record moving images of their families, their vacations and many other things.
It’s been a longer time than I initially anticipated getting this second installment of the Photo Tips series up but you’re getting a 2 for 1 special. :-) This article on still photos and a second one the day after this one’s posted on video. In this article we’re going to talk about some of the issues that people have with compact cameras.

This is going to be the first in a series of a few articles on tips to help you get better travel and vacation photos. In this article I’m not going to go much into actual tips as talk a little about philosophy and approach to making photos.
