1. Capturing the Wonders of the World: An Exploration of Travel Photography

Travel photography has become an important way to document our experiences and to capture the incredible beauty of our corner of the world and beyond. With an endless variety of potential photo subjects, it can be daunting for a beginner to know where to start. Fortunately, getting great shots is within reach with some helpful tips.

Get to know your camera
For beginning photographers, it’s important to get to know your hardware. Take the time to learn how the buttons, dials, and settings work – and just as important, how they don’t work – well before you hop on a plane or book a hotel. It’s much less stressful to experiment with a camera in your own time without the risk of missing a great shot on the other side of the world.

Start small
The world is an overwhelmingly large, beautiful place – but there’s no shame in starting small. A beautiful and interesting local park can provide a great canvas for practicing different lighting styles and apply everything that’s been learned so far. An urban neighborhood can bring unique architectural angles, and a visit to the local botanical garden could bring back some spectacular floral shots. Smaller trips can provide a more manageable environment to practice and hone the art of travel photography, as well as provide some amazing subjects in their own right.

  • Capture life on the street
  • Shoot macro scenes
  • Try to connect with locals

Seek adventure
The greatest wonders of the world are waiting to be discovered in every corner of it, and a photographer’s eye can provide a unique view of it. Whether it’s a picturesque beach, awe-inspiring mountains, or an exotic bazaar, journey to places that stir something within and shoot whatever scene speaks to the heart. Nothing can compare to the feeling of capturing and presenting a world of wonders and beauty to an audience at home.
