5 Best Poses to Attempt in every Holiday

1. Best Jump Shots

Every trip needs those few ‘liberating’ jump shots clicked at the precise moment. Note, you would need a decent camera with fast shutter speed/ multi-shot mode and erm..a relatively capable photographer:D

2. Silhouettes Dance Poses for Pictures

Sunrise and Sunsets – the perfect setting for every whimsical silhouette shot. Always keep your camera low if you want a more ‘bottom up’ effect with the full body silhouette, not hindered by anything. Try this anywhere from beaches, to look-out points to any grass patch!
