I am sure you guys have uploaded images from your summer holidays to DT.
Here are some of mine.
Manarola, Cinque Terre, Liguria, Italy
Portofino, Liguria, Italy
Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy
Corniglia, Cinque Terre, Liguria, Italy
Riomaggiore, Cinque Terre, Liguria, Italy
Vernazza, Cinque Terre, Italy
Monterosso, Cinque Terre, Italy.
There are lots, lots of interesting stuff to explore and capture. and the images above are only some of the approved ones.
Please check out my profile http://www.dreamstime.com/Akulamatiau_info to view them.
I brought a fish eye lense (8-15mm), a wide angel (17-40mm) and standard (24-105mm), a small tripod. spare batteries and lots of memory cards.
Since the trip involved a lot of hiking, walking, jumping in and out of trains, I figured those should be enough since I dont want to burden myself with heavy packs.
I did some research on Cinque Terre and decided a fish eye lens will be especially helpful in the narrow street and back alleys of Cinque Terre.
Most of the images were captured using Aperture Priority mode. Using manual was a bit time consuming since the it will take a lot of time to get the correct exposure.
I also used a polarizing filter to give a little bit more saturation and enhance the colors of the images. Its particularly useful to use when taking the crystal clear sea to eliminate the suns reflection on the surface.
Thanks for reading.
