One of the best thing i love in photography is that to explore the new techniques through the clicks. It was our educational trip to Rajsthan in four respected cities BIKANER, JODHPUR, PUSHKAR and JAIPUR. In this trip i had learned so many things about travelling and photography. What makes you a good travel photographer is all depends on the few tips as following:-
# WAKE EARLY: The best light to capture most kinds of subjects is in the golden hours- one hour after sunrise and one hour before sunset . So get up early to get that amazing photo opportunities, while all the other tourists are still asleep.
#DO SOME RESEARCH: Don’t leave it to chance and learn as much as you can about the place you are about to travel. The more you know, the more “intelligent” your images will be.
#CHOICE THE RIGHT LODGING: Staying on the center of town, or having a room with wonderful views can create a lot of great photo opportunities
#GET INSPIRED: Watch the portfolio of other photographers in order to get new ideas and get inspiration. You can read the interview I did with Steve McCurry, the photographer of the “Afghan girl”, to get few great tips for a true master.Also, If you perceive yourself as an artist, you must acknowledge the work of other artists.
#TRAVEL LIGHT: Don’t take your entire house with you. When I travel I take with me only two lenses.
#KEEP IT NATURAL: One of the most important and influential photographers of all time, Henri Cartier Bresson- Never ever used flash in his photography.
NOTE: please don’t stop travelling if you want to be good photographer.
