Hints, Tips and Recommendations:
Trip Planning

Do a Google image search  for any place you intend to visit and ask yourself can you do better ? Try using  Tripadvisor  in the same way. If you have difficulty in walking far use Google, including satellite view to find car parks (a local example).  Use Google  street view  by dragging the little yellow person icon to the  car park or place of interest in order to see if it might be possible to take images from or very close to your car if you find walking difficult. Use Google Earth for 3D views either for landscape or cityscape and architecture photography planning.

Use a photographer’s ephemeris if you think that position of the sun or moon in the sky could be important in your outdoor photography. Try the website Photoephemeris.com when planning trips.   Also see our Phone apps page.
