just a week ago I come back from a holiday trip and it was not only a pleasure time but also kind of a travel photo vacation - going to the sea, exploring Istanbul and traveling around my home country. So I thought it's going to be a nice idea to share some useful travel photography tips with you. Some people collect souvenirs when they travel, I prefer to collect beautiful images and to enjoy them for years..:)
8 USEFUL TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS
To get amazing images you need a beautiful soft light and usually, the morning light is very good for this but sunsets are also very good time for capturing amazing images - the time an hour after sunrise and hour before the sunset is called "GOLDEN HOURS" and then you can have a very nice and soft warm tones.
2. Research the place.
It's very useful to research your travel destination before you go. There is plenty of online spaces you can do this and take notes about how to reach the place, opening times, the weather...
3. Rule of thirds.
This is one of the main rules in photography and definitely works for your travel photos too to create more balanced images. Imagine breaking an image down into thirds horizontally and vertically, so it’s split into different sections. The goal is to place important parts of the photo into those sections and help frame the overall image in a way that’s pleasing to the eye.
4. Using a tripod.
For perfect composition and best results wearing a tripod is very important. Tripods give you the ability to shoot much slower shutter speed and also you can keep your ISO low too.
5. Experiment with composition.
Try different angles all the time and different distances too. Try to include the powerful foreground, midground, and background elements to make you images nice and balanced.
6. Use of colors.
In photography is very important to know how different colors work well together. So keep an eye out for contrasting colors in your images. The color wheel is a great way to see how you can match the colors and to understand them.
Every time when you take a picture be sure that everything is perfectly in the frame. When you look through the viewfinder or LCD screen don't just focus on the subject, make sure you run your eyes around the entire frame to not cut off something important.
8. Capture details.
Capturing details up close is a great way to convey a sense of place.
