Do you like traveling and photography?
If you are a traveler and photographer then certain things which must keep in your mind. I will be sharing with you steps which can help you to become a better photographer while traveling.
If you want to improve your photography, then follow the below instructions.
Wake up Early
Yes, to get the best nature shots, waking up early is the greatest idea. One hour before sunset and one hour after are the Golden Hours to click some awesome pictures. So, whenever you visit any good place, make sure to get up early. Whenever I travel and visit some awesome places like Golden Temple and Other related places, I have seen that the best time to capture the best quality photographs is clicked at the early morning time.
To be successful in any profession, you need inspiration and for that everyone must watch the portfolio of the greatest of that field. So, to become a travel photography expert, watching portfolio of other photographers is not a bad idea.
Always Carry a Camera
“The Best Camera is One you have with” this is a famous saying in photography. So don’t go anywhere without a camera. Be ready for anything because luck plays a key role in travel photography. In my words, I would say make camera your best friend. I always a carry camera with me. If you are having a mobile with a camera that could also do the work if you forget to carry your professional camera.
But my best advice to you is that you must carry a camera with you, I even carry my camera in my own city because I don’t know when will be the best possibility to get an awesome click.
Feel the Place
To get the best shots, you must understand the story of the place. If you just take the pics without knowing the story, you can’t get the right shots. Photography is not just a visual inspiration. To get in touch with the place, try local food and hear local music. It will help you a lot. An image can say a thousand words. So try to click a photograph which could say a thousand words by just seeing it.
Travel By Road
Don’t travel much by plane or trains as you can miss some best shots. And traveling by road will give you some time to interact with the locals. Take your own car or bike while traveling, which will be more convenient to get more photographs for you. And no doubt will help you to do travel photography with easy and perfect sense.
Don’t Click All The Time
If you are traveling to any place, just keep in mind that it is not necessary to click each and every site. Sometimes you’ve to leave the camera behind so that you can enjoy the ride. It will make you fresh. And If you are knowing more about your camera then you will do the clicks wisely. Because the cameras have a life span, the more the clicks you do, more quickly your camera will wear out which will result in buying a new camera in a short time.
Click From the Top
To make a good travel picture series, take some pics from the top of the city, from where you can see all the city or town. Without these, your photo series will look incomplete. Use wide-angle camera lens to capture this kind of photos. The images taken from the height are always considered as the best images.
This is the one thing you must do. Anything can happen at any time. You can lose your pics if you don’t take backup. So, whenever you are taking pics, don’t forget to take backup of all of your important clicks. I will suggest you carry a small laptop with good space in it so that you can save your all images instantly and be safer. And avoid the fear of losing your images.
Travel as Much You Can
To become a good Travel photographer, you must keep on traveling. If you can’t travel then that is for sure that you can’t do travel photography. It is no necessary to travel far and exotic places, you can get some amazing shots of your local town too. Try to bring beauty in every place near you.
