Create Better Travel Photos
A presentation for the BCRPVPA May 3, 2018
Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.
- Plan ahead with a shot list
Resource: My Shot Lists for Travel, available at App Store (IOS only, free)
- Include the human element in your scenes. Allow others to travel vicariously.
- Be a Reader of the Light
Light is harsh or soft, warm or cool. Avoid harsh light.
- Think in themes
Focus your attention and narrow the field with a theme. Because you can’t get it all.
- Watch your backgrounds
The background should always support your subject.
- Be a People Person
a. Catch the locals in actionb. Engage with the locals
