Recent Sailing Onboard Princess Cruises 2021

I have dabbled as an amateur photographer over the years. While it is something I enjoy, it’s something that I haven’t dedicated a lot of time to. Over the last two decades I have been very blessed to travel around the Globe – way back when you had to develop the film in your camera, to my first digital camera (A Fuji with a whopping 3.1Megapixels) to my newest digital SLR (Canon) which I LOVE.

As I have travelled these last few years I find more and more that I am forgetting about packing my DSLR because it’s big and bulky. Only to get to the destination and think “I wish I had my camera with me – that would have been an amazing shot”. Then I pull out my dated iPhone 5C and take a mediocre photo (yes newer phones and other models have some pretty decent camera options – I just don’t own one of them).

My advice is………suck it up buttercup and pack the big camera. Strap it across your body, on your back or
carry in a hand bag if it’s the right size, but bring it along. An athletic coach once told me “You regret 100% of the shots you don’t take” and I think that applies to Photography as well!

So get out there, get snapping and capture those amazing memories you are creating with your family around the World!
