Hi, if anyone is interested in tips about photography here are a few:
- Take a few memory cards. You can always bring a laptop to backup your photos on the run or put them on Facebook via a laptop. Or post the memory cards home as you go, so they're safe.
- Bring your camera charger and look at a second battery if your camera doesn't use AA batteries. Maybe consider a power board and a single country adaptor. Some hostels have USB ports in the wall power ports. So you can charge your phone and camera at the same time or use a power board or double adaptor
- If taking photos of groups of people with the sun behind them, use the flash as fill light
- If you're buying a new camera, try to get one with a good zoom function and wide angle lens function for diverse shots of both people, city and landscape.
