Last time I spoke about 5 Best Travel Photography Tips. Of course, there are many more tips that can be given. Let's take a look at 5 more of them.
This collage is from my first trip overseas. I was 23, just got my passport and was ready to fill it with adventures. I didn’t have a professional camera at the time, so I download a photo editing app, Cymera, to create my own postcards. Being a fan of the writer, Heinrich Heine, my first stop had to be his birthplace, Düsseldorf, Germany. Located in West Germany, this riverside town instantly stole my heart. It was like a dream being there; being face to face with things I’ve only seen in books. I was blown away with the modern architecture hidden within a forest. This city has a perfect balance of a high tech big city with an old-world charm that you would expect in any other historic city. Being there reminded me of all the settings and poems in Heine’s books. Being an opera singer, I couldn’t help but hum songs of other Düsseldorf natives. Before flying out, I did a little research on things I shouldn’t miss.
US 23 is one of the prettiest stretches of highway in the country, with most of it hugging Lake Huron on one side and the forest on the other.
“A sense of wonder, a sense of light, a sense of humility in this life.”
Set during golden hour, I love the British countryside for these moments. For this photo to mean something, we’ve got to back up around two or three hours before.
It's late June 2018. I'm four weeks into a six-week adventure through Israel, Portugal, and Croatia. I was based in Lisbon, Portugal at the time, and that's where I met up with a buddy-from-way-back, Dan.
A few days before the lockdown I was driving back from Utah. Shooting there was a wonderful experience as usual, however, my working days were filled with anxiety as the news about the spread of' unknown coronavirus began to escalate.
We stand at the precipice of a world filled with more uncertainty then ever before. It's for that reason that is so imperative that we capture the peace, warmth and joy within as many beautiful fleeting moments as possible. For once it's gone it many never return. Only to be remembered by the stillness of a stolen glimpse that we locked away in a photo. What an honor that through today's technology we are able to capture any moment in time we deem worth celebrating in the snap or click of a button.
Before this competition, I don’t recall the last time I had written an article. I’m not a writer, but I do share my art through the result of what my camera produces! Pictures do supposedly say a 1000 words, right? I intentionally did not edit this picture at all, because I wanted to share the same natural, magical, and raw experience I witnessed with those who would come across it. Filters and edits may definitely enhance this picture, but if I had to add those edits- it would have been from a perspective of what I thought was best, and that is not the intention behind this captured picture.
It was late January when my friend asked me last minute to embark on this novel adventure with her, one that would require waking at 3:00 a.m. in order to be able to meet the requisite of connecting with the rest of our crew at the base of Mt. Washington, New Hampshire.
You love to travel, but you think your photos don't make justice to all the beautiful places you visit? If this is your case and you are looking to improve your travel photography, this is the place!
Today’s reality is tomorrow’s memory.
