How To Photography: Making The Most Of Your Travel Photography @MediaNovak
Travel is one of the primary reasons many people decide to become photographers, whether they are casual point-and-shooters, serious amateurs or even pros, many of whom love to take travel photos as a respite from the daily grind of their assignments. People like to preserve a record of where they’ve been and who and what they’ve seen and, of course, share those images with family members, friends and the whole world.
Many travel photography articles explain the details of exposure, composition, lighting and other techniques. In contrast to those, this PhotographyTalk article focuses a bit more on planning and tips related to the “doing” of travel photography.
1. Destination planning.
In most cases, you are aware of where you will be traveling, especially if it’s a vacation. You don’t always have to be definite about your destination for excellent travel photography opportunities, however. Often, a last minute, or casual, choice will result in finding yourself in a place with much to photograph. In addition, travel photography shouldn’t be limited to vacations. Although it may be more difficult to find the time, business trips can take you to places with exciting views, people, cultural events, etc.
