A Simple Guide To Starting With Travel Photography

We all like to document our travels these days, and with the smartphone being the ultimate portable camera more of us are doing it than ever. 

I don't know about you but so many of my personal memories are intrinsically linked to the places I have been, the people I have met and the photos I have taken. Taking that perfect photo to remember those moments, to share with family and friends and on social media is what many of us strive to do.

I do feel it's important though to live in the moment too and not get obsessed with creating perfection. After all, even if your photo isn't the best there is a plethora of editing software available that can help you crop, highlight, saturate, and sharpen.

If you are starting to get serious about travel photography though, you may want to buy a good quality camera, such as a mirrorless or SLR camera as they are more flexible and better in low lighting conditions like an Olympus Pen or Canon EOS. 

Once you have that perfect camera, picking that destination for amazing photography is the next important thing. My favourite destinations for fabulous photos include the stunning landscapes of Iceland, the French and Italian-influenced architecture of Nice and the iconic skyline of New York.

  2. Great list. I love taking photos when out and about but I've never thought to take a tripod. I'd love to take photos at The Grand Canyon!
