Tips for Taking Great Outdoor Photos
There are many people out there who believe that merely having a fancy digital SLR camera will make them a better photographer. This of course is complete absurdity. I mean, no one becomes a better chef because they have a fancy stove; skills come from the knowledge and experience of the person behind the equipment, not the equipment itself. You don’t necessarily need to have the top of the line camera; in most of my travels around the world, I’ve actually only used a little point-and-shoot camera — after having grown tired of lugging around a big SLR on extended trips — because I’ve found that you can still take beautiful photos if you just know how to take one (and without all the weight). In fact, every photo in my The Global Trip “Elsewhere” slideshow of images around the world was actually shot with a pocket-sized low-res Sony Cybershot.
