How To Shoot Candid Vacation Photos

by Gina 11/15/2010

The holidays are quickly approaching and as we book our airline tickets, I thought this  video found on Sony Style’s How To Video site is a good one to share. It’s hosted by Nigel Barker, photography expert who provides great tips on capturing candid photos while on vacation. Now a vacation can be a day trip or it can be a trip to see family where you wish it were only a day. In either case, he covers everything from the best cameras to utilize (you’d be surprised that a DSLR isn’t always recommended and the video highlights Cyber-shot cameras, our Alpha NEX line and Alpha DSLR line) to suggesting defocusing backgrounds and portraits.

You can watch the HD version here.

The video is only 3 minutes but leaves you with some fantastic things to think about the next time you’ve got a camera in your hand. Take a look and let me know what you think. For more how to videos, you can check out our page on
