One of the best things about getting out into the great outdoors and really living life to the extreme is taking pictures of it so you can share with friends and family. Of course, this isn’t always as easy as you would like. The following simple tips will really help to make the whole process much easier, and allow you to get better pictures than ever before.
Tip #1 – Mounting
If you don’t have someone with you to snap the pictures, you need to have a great mounting device. There are many great camera mounts that can attach to almost anything so you can get the perfect shot. Investing in one of these mounts will dramatically help you get the pictures you want.
Tip #2 – Take Pictures in Bulk
One of the biggest benefits that digital cameras provide is that you don’t have to pay for every picture you take. With this in mind, always try to snap as many pictures as you can. You can go through later and delete the ones that don’t look perfect, and be left with several incredible images.
Tip #3 – Forget Camera Safety
When trying to improve your pictures one of the most important things is to have a durable camera. If you’re constantly worried about getting it dirty, wet or bumped you will be severely limited on what you can do.
Tip #4 – Get High or Get Low
When taking action shots you can really improve the image by taking the picture from well above the subject (you) or well below it. If you have the camera placed on the ground while you’re doing a ski jump, for example, it will look like you are getting huge air! Experiment with different angles to see what works for you.
Tip #5 – Focus on the Action
There is no point to snapping pictures of something if you are not pushing yourself hard. Remember, you are out there to have fun and push yourself to the limits. If you are toning it down for the camera, the pictures won’t look nearly as good.
