How to Take Perfect Travel Photos.

IMG_20150515_124940

There’s only so much you can physically leave with from your travels. And I think that’s why photography was invented! ๐Ÿ™‚

You see, pictures are not only personal memories that will last a lifetime, but also make amazing stories that you will be able to share with friends and family for a pretty long time…like your grandchildren will also sit down to listen to them one day.

And that’s why you need to make sure that you capture as much as you possibly can in each frame. Below are a few simple guidelines that should help you do just that:

1. Where?

Outdoors definitely. Hotel rooms andย bathroom selfies don’t make for interesting stories at all. Scout for locations that make the best, authentic and beautiful backdrops. Someone should be able to tell where you are from what you’ve captured.

2. What?

Now, this refers to the atmosphere and subjects/objects that you’ll be capturing. Try to include as much as you can in your frame so as to compliment the main subject.

3. When?

I personally love pictures taken in the middle of the day because that’s when natural light is at it’s best. Sunrises and sunsets are also good for those who love playing around with the concept of light and shadows. I don’t like the in-betweens though.

4. Who?

For those travelling solo, as I do most of the time, you’ll need toย ask someone to take a picture of you. That’s after you’ve spotted the location, background and all that jazz so that you can quickly let them know how you want the picture to appear.

5. Click!

Now watch me whip! Now watch me nae nae! ๐Ÿ™‚ I couldn’t help myself… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Have fun at it and don’t forget to take in and enjoy every moment!

Always be kind.

    1. Hey Danielle! ๐Ÿ™‚ I normally hand them my phone, rarely the camera. And it has never really crossed my mind as unsafe since most of them are usually touring the area as well and probably need someone to take a picture of them too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Hi Diana! Thanks for stopping by my blog. As you could see, I’m not in the same league as you where photography is concerned (strictly point and shoot) but now I know I can learn from you!

  2. Hello Diana! I prefer to take pix around 4pm and after…again, like you say, the natural lighting is at its best! Thanks for your tip about paying attention to the setting and its surroundings. I will expand my focus. I wish all writing was white print on black background like yours…It’s so much easier for me to read! And I LOVE your sparkles! PS Thanks for liking ginablueblog!

    1. Hey Gina! ๐Ÿ™‚ Your feedback just made me smile. I’ve always had second thoughts about the black background and white print… I’m glad to hear that you like it that way. Also, I’m happy that you found the photography tips helpful. Thanks for reading, Gina. โค
