Whether you’re exploring our caves or hiking the Cape to Cape, it’s a joy to capture some great memories in photographs. Four locals share their tips on capturing the Margaret River Region’s most picturesque scenes.
Erika runs guided Cape to Cape walks and a night photography retreat with Edgewalkers. She has a flair for capturing the natural beauty of the region, and shares her tips.
- Composition – find the most interesting composition by looking from different angles, from the side, underneath, above, behind – I have taken some great shots by getting down on the ground.
- Point of view – give the onlooker a connection with the subject by letting them see what the subject sees.
- Editing tools – my favourite tools are the saturation filter which allows you to pick up the colour a notch, and the structure filter which accentuates textures like the clouds in the sky or the grainy texture in the ground.
Get out regularly and at different times of the day so you can capture something unique – you can’t capture anything if you’re not out there!
