When you pack your case and you want to evaluate how much room is left over for souvenirs, be mindful of the products packed that you will use. This would include toiletries, cigarettes, all consumables and whatever else you will use or throw away. What goes in does not always come out on the departure home. Your used products will give you some leeway in your luggage, albeit at the end of your tour.
The Society of American Travel Writers polled its members to come up with the top 10 tips for taking better vacation pictures…and for that matter, just good tips to have whenever your shooting. 1. Shoot photos early in the morning and late in the afternoon. Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., the sun is overhead and the light is flat. Shooting in early morning and late afternoon will add more color and shadows to your photos, giving more definition to the subject.
If available, always try and make sure you get one with a live travel guide, instead of a prerecorded one. Pay attention to where the guide is located on the bus (in good weather, they’re almost always on the top level). Sit as near to them as possible, so whenever there’s a break in their spiel (stuck in traffic, or they just ran out of things to say), feel free to ask them your own questions… Now you have your own personal, local, travel advisor.
holiday pictures are great, but you may discover that you are inclined to leave the camera behind, because you do not want to have to carry it and its case with you all over the place. Rather than miss all those pictures, attach the camera to a lanyard, and you will always be able to have the camera with you at your finger tips.
Find the files that you want to share. You can do this by hitting Start and Computer, then looking around for your files and folders, or if you’re mainly looking for media, a good place to start is your My Documents. You might choose to put all of the media that you want to share into a specific folder, and then share that. When you’ve got the files or folders you want to share from your Windows 7 computer in one place, select the file or folder.
The theme of the workshops will be participants’ favorite travel memories, in keeping with the Dearborn Heights Libraries’ summer reading program theme, the concept of travel. People would create scrapbook pages based on their own travel.
