“Don’t Strike A Pose”

 

On our Lagoon walk we came across a small bridge in a particularly beautiful part of the Trail

   

“Just act natural and walk across it”. Izzy’s advice from last summer still helps me Today. The more natural you look in photos, the more comfortable,realistic and beautiful they tend to become. 

This is the first tip I have to share for taking photos with people in them or of yourself: relax and don’t try too hard. Some of my favourite photos are when I have caught people in the middle of laughing, or messing with their hair. I think this is because these are everyday habits  you don’t notice, but I think they are the moments people are at their most carefree and beautiful.

Catching a moment of true happiness and laughter in a single photograph taken at just the right time definitely beats the posed selfie.
