Communicate with the locals
There are many fantastic locations you can visit in this world, but if you have not spent a couple of years there, you won’t be able to get the best scenery or feel the vibe of the place on your own. This is where the locals come into play. Chat with them and get to know which locations should get more of your time and which should not. They have been there for years and can give you a heads up on all the best places where you can practice your craft.
Start thinking outside the box
As a photographer, you have to think how something will look from your perspective, but if you want to become an excellent photographer, you have to start thinking outside the box. Start taking pictures from different heights, with various lenses and imagine if you were in possession of a different perspective. For instance, imagine how a cat would see the picture, or a bird. Every perspective can a gold mine if done in the right way; you just have to start using your head outside the box.
Travel light when going for some shots
While you are on your vacation, it’s good to bring everything you need. However, once you are actually going out to take pictures and enjoy the scenery, you might want to travel light. The more stuff you carry, the more you will burden yourself with things that don’t need to be there. All that needs to be there are you the camera and whatever you are trying to capture. So, leave the mobile phone at home.
The right lens makes all the difference
Choose the right lens for every scenario. Something that might be best in the nature scene won’t be as good in the downtown area. Get the lenses that you need in advance, so you don’t have to miss the moment when you are making the perfect picture.
