My Best Travel Photography Tips

travel photography tips

Today’s post is filled with travel photography tips to help you capture the best vacation memories.  When we take a photo not only are we preserving precious memories but we are also documenting a place.  We are capturing the essence of a place at a particular time in history.

 

Angles

Just a slight shift in position can dramatically alter a photo.

Unusual angles can add impact and different perspectives.  They can bring out point of views we normally don’t see. How to get different perspectives:

  • Shoot from the side.
  • Kneel down.
  • Shoot up.
  • Hold your camera high.
  • Lie down.
  • Sit down.
  • Climb up.

 

Lighting

Lighting is everything when it comes to photography. Tudor South Beach
The hardest time to get a good picture is during the bright middle of the day.  The best times to shoot are early morning and early evenings.  An added benefit to being out and about so early is avoiding large crowds.

 

Framing

Framing is the technique of drawing attention to the subject of your image by blocking other parts of the image with something in the scene.

Framing gives the image depth and layers while leading the eye to your focal point.
