Tip 1: Take better Travel Photos
TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY is an incredibly wide subject covering landscape and nature photography, people, festivals, culture, food, markets, adventure activities and many other themes. Good travel photos are those which capture the unique character or environment of a particular place, whether it is a city, country or national park. Think about how Paris is different from Tokyo, or the Sahara Desert from Patagonia.
Do a bit of research beforehand to find out what the place is like and then when you are there, try to take a wide variety of shots. You want to get some wider scenes of the city or place and mix them with other more detailed images. For a natural area, these could include the fauna and flora, fields, lakes, rocks and farmhouses. In towns or cities, capture the sites and monuments, colorful markets and food, people and their trades, cultural sites and, of course, the local festivals and transport.
Ideally, the best travel photos should help remind you of your experiences in that place, the things you saw and did, the people you met, the food you tasted, the sounds you heard… and make others want to go there and experience it for themselves.
A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.
