I know there are so many guides about what you need to take excellent images, but all you need to take those captivating images is just some little tips, and you are ready to go.
I will share some tips to taking better travel imagery, read on:
- You don’t need a fancy camera. It’s not the camera that matter but YOU. You can make the most out of the little camera (even your iPhone) you have. All you have to do is be creative, don’t feel shy by the camera you have. Make the most out of it.
- Stage most of your moments. Most of the travel images you see don’t just happen by coincidence, most of it was STAGED. So stage yours. Staging a picture and getting the perfect shot might take time, so be patient and creative too.
- Understand the lighting. Always know the best time to shoot. Don’t think of shooting when the sun is at its peak. The best times to shoot are an hour before the sun sets and very early in the morning just after sunrise. Lighting has a lot to do with high-quality pictures.
- Practice. Practice makes perfect. If you want to sharpen your photography skills, you should practice ALWAYS. You can set a day for yourself just to practice; it doesn’t have to mean you have to take photos only when you are traveling, you can take pictures while having fun with friends or maybe shopping at the mall – anywhere you like.
- Do not forget inspiration. Each photo you take should have a story behind it; it can be a person, season, country or landscape. Travel photos tell lots of stories; they also make people connect to humanity. So learn to capture photos that convey a message without saying a single word. To take inspiring pictures, get your camera along with you to a place that truly inspires you.
- Remember to look up. Most times, the best shots come from above. So never forget to look up especially when traveling. In older cities most of the great architecture are kept above. Think uniquely; check out angles that others don’t.
