If you have other tips to pass on about how to create great photos on your blog then please feel free to write posts about them. But I do have a specific question - or series of questions really - on this topic that I would like to hear more about. This is a sailing blog so I would like to hear what special tips you have for taking photos on a boat, and especially how you take photos on a small sailing dinghy like a Laser.
Do you have a waterproof camera? What models of waterproof camera can you recommend? If you take a non-waterproof camera or phone on your boat how do you protect it?
Do you mount your camera (still or video) on your boat? If so, how and where? One of my followers on Twitter specifically wanted some advice on where to mount a video camera on a Laser. Bow, stern, top of mast, end of boom, on your hat? What are the pros and cons of the different options?
Are there any other tips on how to take great photos and video while you are sailing... or even racing?
Doug at Improper Course wrote an excellent post Finding the Right Match that gives his answers to most of these questions. But I'm sure some of you do things differently. I'd love to hear from you.
Post your tips on your blog and send me an email with a link to it. Full details at Photography for Bloggers 101.
