Of all souvenirs, good photographs capture precious moments best. After meticulously planning for a flight and hotel why not take the time to ensure your vacation photos are as vivid as the memories themselves.

Web Photo School's “Simple Vacation Portrait Tricks: Part 1 and 2” are just two of over 300 unique tutorials available online at This subscription-based website teaches members how to take pro-level shots through step by step lessons, each developed by professional photographers.

These two new tutorials from Web Photo demonstrate how to capture professional portraits while traveling on vacation. Improve every shot with a few simple camera accessories and shooting tricks:

• Be aware of your background: When shooting the perfect vacation shot, be aware of any distracting background elements and have your subject matter fill the full frame.
• Shoot in manual mode: Shooting in manual mode gives you full control of aperture and shutter speed adjustments to improve exposure.
• Use a light reflector: A light reflector, a disc shaped camera accessory made of reflective material, is a simple solution to bounce light into a subject’s face and
warm skin tone.
• Diffuse on camera flash: Diffuse the harsh direct light from an on camera flash with a small soft box attachment. An easy to carry accessory.

Each vacation tutorial integrates the use of simple lighting and photography equipment, all of which can easily be part of a traveling camera bag. The lessons, straight forward in language and formatting, are enhanced with labeled graphics, which can be enlarged for easier study.
