Prepare for Summer Outings

April 7th, 2018

Prepare for Summer Outings

As a cold, wet winter makes way for sunny spring days (at least in much of the Northren Hemisphere), we can start to look forward to summer holidays and days out, whether it be a couple of weeks on the beach, or simple picnics on a weekend afternoon.

Now then is the time to start planning for the accessories we need to help make those trips something special. Stand out from the crowd with our lifestyle and beach accessories which can be supplied in matching or themed designs.

We provide medium, large and even round beach towels, tote bags in 3 sizes and extra large weekender tote bags, to help transport everything to the beach, as well as carry-all pouches, again in three sizes, to help carry your valuables. We can also supply i-phone and Galaxy cases to help protect your phones, as well as portable battery chargers for your phone or tablet, to help you stay in touch on even those longer days out.

Below are samples of our products, all of which are available in over 1,000 different designs for you to chose from.

Capturing Birds in Flight

Capturing Birds in Flight

Todays article is from Picture Correct and is writen by Andy Long, who gives some excellent advise on the difficult topic of Capturing Birds in Flight. Andy is an award-winning photographer/writer who devotes his photography work to the beauty of the world around us. As a leader of workshops (http://www.firstlighttours.com) since 1994, Andy likes to help people explore new areas and to go home with a memorable experience as well as great images.

A shot of a bird in flight has always been a challenge to photographers. Seeing a perfect print image only serves to make them eager to create the same result. Photographing a bird in flight presents one problem, but capturing that one special bird-in-flight shot that’s in focus and has good composition plus good light can represent a whole set of problems. Everyone has their share of good flight shots where the bird may be just a tiny bit soft. Those are easy. But, how do you get a great flight shot?

Rules of Composition

Rules of Composition

With the advent of the mobile phone and tablet, everyone seems to be taking photographs, and for many people all they want is a record of a holiday or family event or a special moment in their lives which they are happy to share with their friends and perhaps to look at some years later when it will bring back a fond memory of times past.

Some of us however want to take their photography one step further and turn it into a hobby which we can develop and improve. So we dispense with our point and shoot camera and stop using our phones and invest in a reasonably decent camera. Personally, although I had been taking pictures for almost 50 years, I only took it up as a serious hobby in 2010 when I purchased a Panasonic DMC-FZ38 prior to visiting Kenya on my first Safari.

To begin with, I looked at the 128 page manual, hardly understood a word, so set the camera to auto and went off on safari. I took some great photos but it was only after I joined a local camera club and started to learn about the art of composition that I began to actually look through the lens and think about what I was doing, instead of simply pointing the camera at an object and pressing the shutter.

After about a decade of filling up multiple hard drives, he says it’s time to share his experiences with whoever’s interested.
