When you travel to a new locale, think of unique things there to shoot. To find some help in choosing your starting point, check out some postcards! Local subjects and attractions featured on postcards are likely memorable and distinctive enough to be worth your photographic attention.
Use care when packing your photography equipment in trip preparation. Take extra batteries, cleaning accessories and different lenses. Don’t take more than you need, and think about what you can carry for your trip.
While many believe that white is one of the best colors to wear in photos, it’s actually not a good choice. Cameras have an auto-focus setting, which will attempt to read all the shades within the shot from the brightest to the darkest. It will be easier to appear washed out in white clothing.
Take some notes as you are snapping photos. When you look back at your pictures, you might have a hard time remembering where you took them. Carry a notepad with you and take notes about the location and how you felt about it.
*+If you are traveling and notice a place that is perfect to photograph, note the location so you can easily come back at a later time with the proper equipment. Be prepared with pen and paper at all times so you can jot down the information needed to find your way back to the area.
Although you may want to have the camera set on the lowest possible setting so that you can have more images on your card before downloading them, you should ensure that you understand exactly how much print quality you’re giving up. You should only apply the lowest settings if you are confident that the images will only be shown on a computer display.
