If you go through your phone’s gallery or open your photo album (for the more traditional and nostalgic), your top 10 favourite moments to remember will probably include those from your holidays. Now, how many times have you repeated the same photo thinking that it was going to come out better than the previous 20 just because you were in an idyllic place at the perfect moment?
Today we propose a different #KualaExperience. Inspired by our Kualalumpur Stores in Gran Canaria and Tenerife, where there are a thousand special corners, we propose some original ideas to photograph on your next holiday.
1. Sunset photography
There is no doubt that sunset is that magical moment when we all want to stop time and immortalise it through our cameras (just look at the hundreds of people who stand in front of the sunset waiting to see what nature gives them). Now, how many sunset pictures do you already have, do you dare to try something different? If you are in front of the sea just before the sun sets, stand up, open your arms and “catch” it with your hands. It will produce a backlight effect that you will love.
2. Look for a different framing
In any tourist city there are places chosen by all travellers; those where they photograph the most emblematic monuments. As it is part of the fun of the trip, there is nothing better than looking for a different frame to keep that memory. That way you will feel that you have achieved something very personal. For example, photograph Teide through Tenerife’s blossoming tajinastes.
3. A photo of a photo
Whether it’s to show the real perspective of the place photographed or to capture a fun moment with your friends taking photos (the making of is always a source of laughter), this is one of the options that you can’t miss in your holiday album.
4. Horizon turn
Some of the most original photos are those in which the horizon is rotated, so that it looks as if everything is going to fall down. You’ll get a different perspective on both landscapes and monuments – another original idea for your holiday plans!
5. Rear-view mirror photography
Capturing the landscape we are looking at on the other side of the camera is one of the most common photographs. Try this time with something more original (and why not say it, a classic) and save that instant from the perspective of the rear-view mirror of your car (never do it while driving, please!). You can try a similar effect on the beach with your sunglasses – be careful not to let the camera show in the photo itself!
