Imagine, you finally took that trip to the Bahamas for which you waited your entire teen years. You would want to share all the bits and pieces of your dream vacation! But hey, why don't you make a profession out of your passion for travel?
How many of us started our journey in photography while we were traveling? Travel photography is a great source to share your personal experience with people. The lookbacks are a memoir of one of the best scenes and skies we can ever be under.
There is nothing more personal than a travel photography blog. It helps you share your experiences with people, earn money, connect with people around the world, and make a space on the internet where you get to share the best days of your life.
Now coming on to making a travel photography blog, we have handpicked some of the best tips that we know to make your travel photography a bit better than your usual experiences.
How to start a travel photography blog?
First off you need to plan what you want to show. You can share food from other cities, people, or skies. You can tell your experiences, details about your visit, or what to do and what not to do.
Then you can register yourself on some blog sites, make your website, or start up an account on Instagram.
How can we make the best out of a travel photography blog?
Polishing your eyes for photography takes time. This process of learning never ends. And as it is said, practice is the only process for perfection. Without any further delay following are some points you should consider to improve your travel photography blog.
Know your gear:
No matter what device you use to shoot pictures. A DSLR, a mobile phone, or an ancient camera. Whatever you choose, you should know the capabilities and how to make the best out of fit.
Make the most out of your hours:
Early morning shoots and golden hour shoots when you are traveling the only light source you would have is the sun and probably the moon which is always there. And these are some really good sources to click aesthetic shots!
Sunsets have a warm glow for your pictures, and the morning sun is the beautiful blue hour. At times the first hour of both instances may not be satisfactory, but it will be worth the wait.
Plan everything before:
Plan the places you want to visit beforehand. The mode of commute you would take, and the things you want to click. Note down the feelings and reactions in notebooks so you can share them later.
A tip here is, try to use a two-wheeler and walk as much as you can. You will discover better sights when you do so. Remember, to ask consent. People are not always welcoming to have strangers shoot their shots.
No matter how cliche this sounds, finding your style, your personalized gear, and your voice behind your shoots is irreplaceable. Shoot raw pictures, explore ISO or do what pleases you. Your travel photography blog should express what you see and what people see. No matter what, generalizing your content is easy.
Try to make it yours, heartfully.
