01 easy-ac­cess bag

Mes­sen­ger bags are a com­fort­able way to carry your kit around. Be­cause they can be slung over one shoul­der, they make it easy to change lenses or ac­cess ex­tra ac­ces­sories with­out stop­ping.

02 aper­ture pri­or­ity

Putting your Canon DSLR in this mode is a good bet for a var­ied city tour. You’ll still re­tain some creative con­trol over your im­ages, but are left free to think more about your per­spec­tive and fram­ing.

03 go hand­held

When you’re on a walk­ing tour, you’ll only have a lim­ited time at each location be­fore mov­ing on. Ditch the tri­pod – it’s only go­ing to be cum­ber­some to carry and slow you down your shoot­ing.

04 get clued up

A quick visit to a tourist in­for­ma­tion cen­tre should pro­vide you with all the lo­cal info you need to find a tour. Check whether you need to book onto a tour, as they can get very busy dur­ing peak sea­son.

05 zoom lens

It’s best to use a flex­i­ble wide-to-tele­photo zoom, such as 18-200mm, when vis­it­ing city sights. You’ll be able to re­frame and change the com­po­si­tion with­out con­stantly hav­ing to change your lens.
