I love traveling, taking photos and shooting videos. With more experience shooting videos and I was curious about how I can create travel photos that people will really enjoy?

A few days ago, I was in Abbotsford shooting a travel video series (watch for it soon!). While roaming around Abbotsford, I tried out the Canon PowerShot SX620 HS Digital Camera and used some of these top photography tips.

Top Travel Photo Tips

Consider “people, places, things.”

This is a useful tip for fantastic vacation photos: the greatest travel photos will often include all three of these.

Get close.

There are a few ways to do this. First, you can use the telephoto feature found on your camera. Try to zoom in on the subject of your photo. The second is to move in closer to what you would like to photograph.

Getting closer to your subject, allows you to get a more detailed meaningful photo.

Know where the light is.

The easiest way to get a fabulous shot is to put the subject in a good source of light. Think about the best time of day for light and where you can find good lighting for your photos.

Change angles. Turn the camera on its side.

Sometimes, turning your camera on its side can take a bland photo and turn it into something spectacular. Always think about the composition of your photo.

Get On the Move.

This is a great tip. Shoot the same photo but from different spots. Move around and try to take the photo from a higher location, then a lower step and from the side. By moving around, you will get a feel of where the sweet spot of the photo is.
