FOUR TIPS FOR EVEN BETTER PICS
USE A SUPPORT
A solid camera support will help eliminate blurry images caused by camera shake. A lightweight tripod is a useful companion, saving you from having to balance your camera on your pack or a rock.
Cameras aren‘t as good as eyes at balancing light levels. To faithfully recreate what you see, or just inject drama into a sky, a set of graduated filters can work wonders in improving colour and detail.
Most highend cameras have the option to shoot in ‘RAW’ format. This allows the camera to record maximum detail in each shot, but does rely on digital software (see right) to get the best from it.
The equivalent of a darkroom in the computer age, most photos can be improved still further with some carefully applied digital manipulation. If you shoot in RAW (see left), it’s essential.
