Understand The Landscape
Get to know the place you are shooting first through researching. Spend some time interacting with locals, finding stories and exploring different angles to create a unique voice through your shots.

Shoot During Golden Hour
Pick up a magazine and you might see it flooded with pictures taken when the light is warm and pleasing to the eyes. Shooting in the early morning or late evening creates various hues of yellow, orange and blue. At these timings, long shadows also help to create a sense of depth in the picture.

Give Your Photo Meaning
Travel photography is about telling your tale, helping the audience to live your journey through your photographs.
Finding meaningful stories will help create an image that stands out from other images of the same place.
Creating magic through photographs is an art, which is why we create pictures. With that said, it’s time for you to pack your camera gear and prepare for your next travel destination to capture the wonderful stories and beauty of the earth.
