FOUR TIPS FOR EVEN BET­TER PICS

Trail (UK) - - KNOW HOW -

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.

FIL­TERS

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.

RAW

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.

PHO­TO­SHOP

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.
