                           How to Capture Your Summer Vacation

 

As many of you know, we are REALLY big advocates for digital storytelling. Wheather you are planning to stay on Cape Cod this summer and capture the beautiful place we call home or traveling elsewhere, there are a few things you want to keep in mind.

Shooting
Don`t have a DSLR? No problem. The best camera is the one in your hand. iPhones take the most fascinating photos, if you take the time to familiarize yourself with the settings available at your fingertips.

Check out this video by iPhone Photography expert Jack Hollingsworth for your introduction to manual controls on your iPhone.

Planning on sharing your summer photos?  Have you thought about the best way to reach your audience? Sure, you can send 40 individual photos to grandma and grandpa through a text, but why not share an album on Facebook? Why not create a digital video link that you can share with family near and far?

Creating a Digital Masterpiece
So now you have a bunch of photos and videos that you don`t know what to do with. There are some easy and FREE applications out there that require little to no video editing experience. Utilizing one of these applications will allow you to share your projects with large audiences easily.
