Snap-Happy Tours for the Aspiring Photographer

Returning home from vacation only to find a bunch of blurry, mediocre photos is one of the biggest bummers of the modern-day traveler. Unless you are downloading the photos to your laptop every night to stare lovingly at the images you created just hours before, there is no way to know if the thumbnail picture appearing on the back of your camera screen is worth of framing. Usually, it’s not until you are home, viewing the image on your computer do you realize the actual potential of its beauty. 

But if you are sick of blurry, out-of-focus photography and want to travel and take better pictures, one way to do it is to combine a tour with a lesson in snapping photos. 

Laura Holt’s article in the Independent on snap-happy tours gives aspiring photogs a few hints for finding and selecting photography tours. 

For pros, the diverse wildlife and shifting light of Africa’s plains make it an unbeatable prospect, she writes.
