Dreaming of going to the Australia Open or the Rogers Cup? If you are lucky enough to score great tickets and to book your flight and hotel, you’ll want to capture pictures to help you remember the trip of a lifetime.
Fortunately, you have many more options these days than the old-school point-and-shoot camera. Thanks to pioneers like Sony and others, you can get some professional-quality photos from these events. Here’s how:
The Sony Handycam is an advanced camcorder that records in high definition. You’ll be able to capture high-quality video that you just won’t get from your smart phone. Plus, you’ll be able to record it on a DVD for posterity, rather than risk losing the video on your phone.
Many personal drones are now available to help you get close than ever before to the action. Just attach a camera to the drone, and you can fly up close to the players. Just make sure you don’t run afoul of any rules! If you get too close, you can not only interfere with the game but also get yourself expelled permanently.
Vintage cameras may not take photos in high definition, but they do take photos that look like art. Just shop around on ebay or etsy for some great vintage finds. Make sure you find cameras that come with the manuals and some film. You can’t always find the film for sale anymore!
Make sure you have lasting photographs from your trip to complement your own fading memory. You’ll be able to share their experience with friends and family, and you’ll be sure to keep those treasured memories for many decades to come. If you take good enough pictures, you could even get paid to have them published!
