Why did I make this video? Take better photos without buying an expensive camera

November 12, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I thought instead of just throwing up a link to this week's youtube video that this week I would try and throw it up and add some context on why I made this video, why I think it is important/relative. If that is an idea you are into then why not hit me a comment down below so I know if people are digging it or not.  I also love to hear things you would consider changing.  So here goes, I take photos when I am out kayaking fairly often.  Infact some people know me as much for my photos as my kayaking which I have always found a bit bizarre as I have always thought of myself as kayaker that likes taking photos not a photographer that likes kayaking.  That viewpoint is important to me but I guess it must get lost with some people.  Anyway, I get asked with decent frequency about what camera I use, setting etc and something I think that not enough people understand is that, although having a better camera can help the main tool you need to take better photos is a creative vision.  The camera on your phone is perfectly capable of taking great photos but it doesn't happen overnight or by accident (usually), you need to do some research on lighting, composition and a few other photography basics. How you edit the photos is another component and can make a big difference in the stories you are telling.  So this video I just wanted to give a couple of ideas about the technical aspects of using your phone as a whitewater kayak camera.  You don't need to buy an expensive camera, just be more creative with what you have.  Watch the video, grab your phone with you next time you are on the river and take some photos.  Tag me on instagram in your best ones @seth_ashworth I can't wait to see them.
