How to Take Amazing Travel Photos
One of our favorite family activities is to have a look at all of the pictures from past adventures together. We have fun talking about the trip and remembering the details. So capturing the essence of each of our family trips has become a big part of every journey!
The best photos I have ever taken, I have done so with my smartphone! It is true! I follow these simple tips and get perfect results every time!
Here’s How to Take Amazing Travel Photos:
Tip 1 on How to Take Amazing Travel Photos
Take an hour and learn your phone’s (or camera’s) photo settings. There are so many programs/apps that you can use now to do all different kinds of things, it really is quite amazing. My smartphone takes absolutely beautiful photos that I can edit right there on the phone! See what your phone can do before you take your trip!
Tip 2 on How to Take Amazing Travel Photos:
The hour before and the hour after sunset and sunrise are the BEST times of day for taking pictures, so try to plan accordingly. Always keep the sun to your back and directly on your subject, during all times of the day. Be aware of the lighting and subsequent shadows around you.
Tip 3 on How to Take Amazing Travel Photos:
Plan and frame out your picture first. Pick one thing to focus on and try it from different angles to find the perfect photo point! Spontaneity is great and will deliver some great pics much of the time, but a little planning and preparation never hurt either – and they deliver great pics every time! The best travel photos have a combination of both!
Tip 4 on How to Take Amazing Travel Photos:
Be inspired! Find that amazing landscape to share, or that crazy food you tried. Tell a joke and catch a laughing response, get a selfie of a quick parent kiss! Your mood comes through in the travel photo so take pics of things you find interesting.
Tip 5 on How to Take Amazing Travel Photos:
Breathe in and release then snap the shot! Taking a deep breathe right before you shoot really helps you to hold the phone/camera nice and still for a good, sharp shot.
Tip 6 on How to Take Amazing Travel Photos:
Take a LOT of snaps! Get quite a few photos of the same image. I’m not saying you need rapid fire, but take at least 6 of every shot to ensure you get the perfect travel photo of that moment.
