These days you don’t need to be a professional photographer to capture a really good photo. Here are 5 quick tips that will help you take better travel pictures:
Move closer to your subject. Closer, closer… Now get even closer. Of course you can crop pictures later, but it’s much easier to get a great shot when your subject is really obvious. Like in-your-face obvious. If you get closer, you’ll be less likely to have a background filled with telephone wires, photo-bombers and other stuff that gets in the way of a great picture.

2. Try different angles
Move to the right, then to the left. Check if you can get your shot in a reflection. Don’t feel like you need to shoot everything straight on. Beauty comes with a little perspective, and angles make photos more interesting.

3. Experiment with your subject
Play around with the placement of your subject. It doesn’t always have to be smack-dab in the center of the photo. Shooting the subject to one side of the photo helps the viewer take in the whole scene.

4. Frame your subject
Find a tree branch, or a bridge, or a bigger building, or practically anything that will naturally frame your shot, so that the object you’re shooting will pop.

5. Finally, put your camera down!
Don’t try to take pictues of everything, just because you have a new 128GB memory card in your camera. You won’t be able to record everything, and while you stare through the viewfinder, you’re missing what’s happening right in front of you!
