Advance Planning List
Taking photos is undoubtedly a must when you are on vacation. Whether you use your cell phone camera or a regular camera (or even both) is something you should decide well in advance of your departure date. If you’re not familiar with all the features of how either one works, now would be the optimal time to learn about them. Every device is different and you can always refer to you tube videos to learn a little bit more about the one you plan to bring. This will help you decide whether you want to utilize things like zoom, blur background, etc. After learning about your device, practice taking photos outside as well as indoors to see the results. If you plan to take a regular camera, now is a great time to check your supply of batteries. If low, put this on your shopping list to buy. This way you’ll avoid having to purchase them at the resort (which can be very expensive) and you’ll also have them readily available while you are on your vacation. Make sure to take only alkaline batteries as you cannot bring lithium batteries on the aircraft. If you decide to use your cell phone as your camera, check to see how much memory your phone has. If the memory is low and your phone has a slot for an SD card, bring an extra one or consider purchasing a memory card. In addition to taking your own photos while you are on vacation, you can also check with the resort to see if they offer on site photography and photography packages. If so, you might consider hiring the resort photographer for a session. As a side note, if you plan to snorkel or go scuba diving, purchasing (bringing) an underwater camera may come in very handy as well.
