The point of travel photography is to capture a setting in a way that, first of all, portrays a scene honestly. While still making the destination enticing. In order to give the viewer a glimpse into what it must be like to be there. So, travel bloggers often have to equip themselves with photography skills to add value to their writing. That is why I decided to these travel photography tips for beginners.
Here are my top tips for travel photography if you are just starting out:
Building the next generation of wildlife and environmental media specialists
Go down the path less travelled
That is to say, to take photographs that haven’t been taken, you must do things that haven’t been done. Experiment with different angles that you wouldn’t conventionally try.
Take photo’s often and know your camera – read your manual
Focus on composition
Get to know people
Take a small tripod if you can
Protect your equipment from the elements!
For example, replace your lens cap and put your camera back in your camera bag. Overall practice good housekeeping with your equipment. Also, you can read more about protecting your gear from he elements here.
Learn how to make the best of different types of light
Go on outings focused on travel photography
Do your research on your location first
Shoot in RAW
The reason for this is that your camera will collect more data for each photograph. Consequently, your photographs will take up more space but, as a result, there will be more options available to you in post processing.
