Bored at home? Pick up some new photography skills so you are guaranteed Instagrammable family shots on your next holiday.

For most Aussies, international travel is still a distant reality – border closures and a lack of flights are making any kind of travel trickier at the moment. But this is an opportunity to practice your photography skills so that the next time you hit the road or jump on a plane, your holiday snaps are as ‘grammable as possible. And for kids, this is a great chance to learn something new – and for you to offload the photography duties to a willing assistant!

Rule of thirds

There aren’t any hard and fast rules in photography, but if there’s one to get you started it’s this. Divide your frame into a threeby-three grid, and then try and position important parts of the photo – the subject, the horizon and anything else you really want the viewer to see – on the lines of the grid. Many cameras have an option to superimpose this grid on the frame, making setting your photos up super easy.

Fill the frame

One mistake that beginning photographers – adults and kids alike – often make is leaving too much space around the subject. An easy way to get around this is to get up as close as you can to your subject and literally fill the frame with it. Kids in particular can be hesitant to get too close, so really encourage them to walk right up to whatever they’re photographing.

Take control

If you and your child have already spent some time using a camera – whether it be a pointand-shoot or a more complex DSLR – take some more control over your settings. If you do have a DSLR, start by playing around with shutter priority mode: this allows you to control how long the camera shutter stays open. Long

shutter speeds can yield some great artistic effects, including wispy waterfalls and streaky night skies. Smaller cameras without these modes will often have ‘sport’ and ‘night’ modes that give you some more control. Normally your user manual will have information on what these modes do.

Change your point of view

Most beginner photos are taken at eye level. While obviously this is the easiest way to take photos, getting up high or down low often makes your shots more unique. Kids will love doing this, and you might want to set them a challenge to see how many different perspectives of the same subject they can capture. Send them out into the garden to climb a tree and take some photos, or to get down low and see the world the way a dog or cat might.

Learn to ‘see’

This one’s a little more abstract. Photography is an analytical art form, meaning that you need to make conscious decisions about what to include in the frame. Learning how to make these decisions better is the best way to improve at photography. When you go for a walk with the kids get them to look for patterns. Ask them how they would photograph a unique flower or a particular view. By actually saying these things out loud and explaining exactly why we make these decisions, we’re able to improve our photographic seeing.
