My Passion For Travel Photography

The most fun you can have with a camera and passport

Travel photography combines two of my favourite things: yes, that would be travelling and photography. I am at my happiest when I can wander around aimlessly with a camera in hand. I see a certain beauty in many things that are often ignored. Luckily I have a fiance who is just the same (even perhaps a little worse). We travel a lot, and are happy to ignore the biggest tourist traps and to rather get lost somewhere in a big city, a small village, along a country road, or between the tombs of an old cemetery.

Here I will share with you some of the photos I have taken around the world.

Image: As you have probably already guessed, this photo was taken in Venice. This and all photos on this page belong to me, unless otherwise specified.

What sort of camera do I prefer for my travel photography?

I'm pretty much a point-and-shoot person, so the camera I use the most is my seven year old Nikon Coolpix camera. Especially when travelling I prefer not to have to carry too much.

I have also have some experience in using DSLR cameras, and if I'm going somewhere especially to take photos, I will bring my fiance's old Nikon D90. However, I am an amateur who does not know how to take full advantage of a DSLR anyway, and I do find it very heavy to drag along for a full day's wander around a city.

SanDisk 8GB Class 4 SDHC Flash Memory Card, Frustration-Free Packaging- SDSDB-008G-AFFP (Label May Change)

You can of course use one big memory card and store all you photos on the one, but if you should have your camera stolen you will then lose all those photos.

Personally I keep several smaller cards with me when travelling, and once they are full I store them in separate locations from each other - in my wallet, my purse, my camera bag, my passport holder, my suitcase/ backpack - to name a few options. That way, if I should lose one of these things I will only lose a few of my photos with it.

I swear by SanDisk, and probably have about ten of this 8GB card.

 
Nikon COOLPIX S3500 20.1 MP Digital Camera with 7x Zoom (Silver)
Nikon COOLPIX S3500 20.1 MP Digital Camera with 7x Zoom (Silver)

This is a much newer model than the one I have. A 7x wide-angle zoom and vibration reduction makes it an excellent camera for on-the-go photography.

An even newer model was released on February 6, but rather than paying full price for a new one, you can save some money by buying this not-yet-expired model. The money saved can be put against your next travel adventure.

Playing with shadows

One of the things I love doing is experimenting with the light. Sometimes if you move your camera just a little bit to the left, or all the way over there to the right, the angle of the light will change - and so will the outcome of your photo. What I often do with my little Nikon is to move the camera at an angle where only the smallest glimpse of light comes into the frame, and then I can take dark silhouetted photos both at night and in broad daylight. Let me show you some examples of this in the gallery below.

A few tips to consider

1) Take lots of photos, but also take the time to enjoy the view. It is not just a picture - you are here, in this moment, now. Don't miss it!

2) Don't forget to take photos of the more touristy things as well, in your quest to taking "different" photos. You will regret not having them later. Imagine going to Paris and not having a single photo of the Eiffel Tower...

3) Look for different angles and ways to frame your photo. Move in closer for a more detailed shot or move farther away if you want to add more of the surroundings. Find a background that does not seem disturbing or takes the attention away from the main feature.

4) If no background looks suitable, see if you can use the sky (a sharp blue or darkly overcast sky usually works best, if you don't really know what you are doing - like me).

These photos are taken in Astorga, Spain. Isn't the first one a boring photo? But I really liked the angel statue holding the cross, so I decided to move in closer for a more detailed shot. You can see this other approach to the right. This is better, don't you agree?

Travel Photography: A Guide to Taking Better Pictures (Lonely Planet's Guide to Travel Photography)

I am only an amateur photographer, but I would love to learn more and get better at my hobby. I have been searching for books on the subject and ended up with this one. It gives not only a proper introduction to the technical aspects of photography in itself, but also covers different situations you might encounter on your travels, as well as how to sell your photos.

It is excellent for beginners, but also for people who have more experience in the world of photography.

I also love travel photos. I recently switched to a micro 4/3 for travel, from my DSLR. I am still deciding, but so far I am pretty happy with my choice. I mostly shoot in manual, so I find the point and shoots too limiting, but their size and weight sure are nice!

My husband and I share your interest. He is always finding the "small" cool bits to photograph - your series at the top of the page, with the door knocker framed by the fence, or the little face in the alleyway - those are the types of things we also see.

Once, walking around Charleston, South Carolina, we kept seeing stuff like that - including old manhole covers, garden gates, etc. And the sun coming through the steeple of the church in Spain reminds me of a photo I took years ago - I recalled seeing an old steeple in Bennington, Vermont, and I wound up driving about 5 hours to get there on the perfect day to wait for the sun to hit it just right, and took a similar photo to yours.

When we travel to St. Martin, we also see things like that! Now, you have me thinking it's time for a trip!


Dressage Husband profile image

Dressage Husband 8 months ago from Pine Grove, Nova Scotia, Canada Level 5 Commenter

The thing about photography is that it is not the camera that matters it is the light and how you use it and see it. If you are a lousy photographer you still will be even with the most expensive equipment. David Bailey (one of the great British photograhers) always had a Canon point and shoot in his pocket so that he never missed the once in a lifetime shot. The point is a good point and shoot used correctly will outperform a DSLR that is not correctly set up and the DSLR's are heavy to carry about all the time!

Great LOTD and well written too!

I love this lens, I love to travel and hope to do more in the future, my next trip is to Quantico VA and to Washington DC in just a couple weeks. Photography is my passion as well and I'm lucky to work at a Pro Color Lab. I agree the big DSLR can be cumbersome and too obvious in some countries and areas, I'm thinking a mirrorless camera would be the best of both worlds.

@Spirality: I normally just use my seven year old point and shoot compact camera, and sometimes even the camera on my iPhone. For the really stand out photos a proper DSLR camera does the best job, but I just don't want to carry it around most of the time. I'd say, if you're interested in travel photography, start practicing with whatever camera you have and see if you enjoy it. You may be surprised at what even a mediocre camera can achieve :)
