Everyone want to take beautiful photos of their trip. Truth is, some people are good at it and some aren’t. But we have some tips for you that might help.
Wake up early. There are two times in a day when the light is pretty awesome. Morning and evening, sunrise and sunset. We know that waking up at 5 a.m. can be pretty tough, but believe us, it is worth the pain. In that way you can also beat the rush because most people are still in bed.
Pack light. Especially DSRL equipment is heavy and it can be a burden when traveling. So don’t pack too much equipment. Think in advance what kind of kit will you need – wide-angle zoom, mid-range zoom or a telephoto zoom.
And always remember: it’s not the camera, it’s the photographer that matters.
Research where you are going. You can make a list of things you want to photograph in advance. There are attractions in every city that most of us want to capture. For research you can use the internet, ask your friends that have already been there, go to tourist information points etc.
But always leave room for the things and hidden gems that most of the people miss when traveling. It’s so nice to see something new and not just the classic Eiffel tower views.
Select the RAW setting. If you don’t select the RAW setting you’re not getting the full potential out of the image file. RAW contains much more data than JPEG file. Than you can later on process the image whatever you like.
But we think that you really must follow just one tip: enjoy. Capture the interesting moments, landscapes and people. Don’t worry about high-res and polished images. Except if you’re a professional photographer ;).
