Travel photography is an important way of exposing the world and sharing experiences from different places with others. Many travel photographers have made uploading photos to different media platforms a regular habit that is part of their daily routine.
Alright, so the last three Guide to Travel Photography articles got you up and raring to go, and you’re feeling quite confident about the basics and your newfound abilities, right? Well, it only seems right to push the subject a bit into the direction of some more advanced techniques and things to watch out for in photography. While there are nearly endless subjects that I could touch upon for advanced tips for photography (like that of mastering your settings for optimum quality, how particular lenses are better for certain shots and certain lighting situations, or how to overcome the many and varied issues that can arise, like Chromatic Aberration or Moiré), I decided to focus on some of the more common and to be honest, more elementary techniques – because the world of photography is immense and a simple six volume series like this one will never be able to cover everything, but so is the beauty of the internet that the entire world has access to the seemingly endless amounts of information.
The Isle of Skye is truly enchanting and ever inspiring. Of all the places I’ve visited in my life thus far, the Isle of Skye wins for its expansive beauty – for every mile I traveled, I could barely keep my eyes on the road, because another area or another look, would grab my attention. I was more in awe, time and time again, through the three days that I toured the island, than I was in all of Ireland (and it’s maybe 1/10th of the size)!
Last month I spoke at length about the various “don’t do’s” in travel photography, or rather, photography in general.... This time around, I felt it necessary to focus on some positives, with some of the more necessary do-do’s that will help you advance your own photography.
Welcome back to the second installment of my “Guide to Travel Photography” series – if you missed last month’s feature, click here to read ‘Know the basics’.
On this month’s addition, I think it’s important to talk a little about some of the things that you should look out for, some don’t do’s, and some absolutely never-in-hell should you do’s. A few of these may seem elementary or obvious to you, however you wouldn’t believe how often I see amateur shooters committing many of these mistakes...
I thought it would be nice to offer my thoughts on choosing the right camera for you, so that the next time you are on an adventurous trek, vacation or longterm trip, you will be able to capture the moments you experience as best you can. This article will likely be whimsical and random, and I wouldn’t consider it a all-inclusive guide exactly, but I’m publishing it in hopes that it will help you a little in the decision process for your next big time camera purchase.
