Enjoying your Orlando airboat ride at The Black Hammock is a one-of-a-kind experience—so why not treasure the moment with a photo keepsake? Just read on as we share our top tips for snapping the perfect photo.
Pick the perfect time
With a backdrop this beautiful, great photos can be taken at any time of the day! But if you’re looking to frame the best possible shot, consider the time of day. Mornings and evenings offer softer, more diffused light—in fact, the time leading up to dusk is known as “golden hour” because it’s such a great time to grab warm, glowy photos! These times of day, you won’t need to worry about overexposed shots, so snap away with ease. Fortunately, The Black Hammock offers plenty of rides throughout the day, from morning to night, so you’re able to craft the perfect photo op. (Sticking around for sunset? The Lazy Gator Bar isn’t just a great place to hang out—it also offers beautiful waterfront views that are sure to stun!)
Get familiar with your phone’s camera settings
You don’t need a professional camera to achieve beautiful photos at The Black Hammock! By getting to know your smartphone’s settings, you can easily adjust exposure, shutter speed and more in the moment—so that you never miss the perfect photo because it’s too dark, too bright or blurry.
Set up a one-of-a-kind photo op…
Here at The Black Hammock, we have plenty of ways to grab the perfect photo. As we mentioned earlier, the Lazy Gator Bar is an ideal setting for sunset shots by the water. Bird Island is another beautiful spot, where you can grab action shots of our feathered friends in action. Don’t forget that each airboat ride comes with a complimentary photo with a baby gator in the gift shop! We’ll snap this one-of-a-kind shot using your phone so that you can share it with ease—and treasure it forever.
… and enjoy candid shots, too
Be sure to capture plenty of those off-guard, candid moments too: the carefree fun of an airboat ride, or the wide-eyed face before saying “hi” to our resident gators. These are the moments you’ll remember.
Enjoy the experience
As much as we love snapping photos to capture the one-of-a-kind Black Hammock experience, we also know that sometimes, the best way to view the adventure is through your own two eyes. So snap away, but also be sure to live in the moment and take a mental picture of the landscape and the people sharing in the fun with you!
Once you snap the perfect shot here at The Black Hammock, we’d love to see it. Share it with us online and keep your photographer’s eye open for the next great photo op—because no two rides at The Black Hammock are ever the same!
