Secrets of Travel Photography


We talk about


Holidays, especially during the summer, are the occasions when we take the most photographs. Whether it's for fun, to have a souvenir to show and share, or to have a personal memory of the places visited, at the end of the vacation, we always find ourselves with a gallery full of pictures. In this sea of images, however, only a few are the ones we like and want to keep. Getting the photos we would like and that evoke those feelings of freedom and carefreeness the moment we look at them is not easy; especially when we notice unwanted and annoying details. We would all like to capture photos that are devoid of other individuals and enhance the main subjects; so here are three essential key rules for you to follow for unique shots, the way you want them, while on vacation.

1. Find the Right Light

Light plays a key role in photography, and during vacations, you have the opportunity to take full advantage of the various shades of light that the day offers. You can capitalize on the soft, clear effect of the first light at dawn or the warm, orange hues of the sunset for a more mysterious and nostalgic result. It's advisable to avoid the midday hours when the sun is at its highest. The intense light during this time can create strong shadows and fade colors, causing a flattening effect on all elements in the photo. In such cases, no single subject will stand out in the photograph. Ultimately, natural light is preferable to artificial light, as it tends to result in more detailed and authentic photos.

2. Unique Perspectives

After finding the right light, your next task is to discover a favorable perspective that effectively communicates the desired emotion in your photo.Avoid the commonplace shots and seek out unconventional angles to enhance visual interest. Embrace your inner child, have fun, and experiment with perspective by incorporating foreground elements to imbue your image with a sense of depth. Additionally, leverage reflective surfaces or bodies of water, such as fountains, to introduce captivating elements. You can also experiment with photographing through doors, windows, or arches to add a touch of solemnity to your composition.These tips will help you achieve unique and personal memories, as well as make you have fun.

3. Capture Spontaneous Moments

This is perhaps the most important advice of the three, as spontaneous and authentic photos tell a deeper and more realistic story than those in which there are forced poses. Photograph locals as they go about their daily lives, friends as they enjoy themselves, or your family as they admire a view. These shots will capture the true essence of the vacations, evoking a sense of vitality and authenticity.

Bonus Tip

Even after following the rules and taking careful shots, unwanted details or (the main and quite annoying issue) strangers walking in the background might still be present. Despite your efforts to pay attention or stay in isolated places, you'll never achieve a completely unobstructed view without people. In cases like these, you can easily use Photo Eraser!
