How To Snap Interesting And Attractive Travel Photos

Do you want to take spectacular travel photos that are visually interesting and attractive? If you feel your travel photos aren’t really cutting it, there are a few simple photography techniques and tricks can help you to improve your travel photos by leaps and bounds.


Improve the Frame and Composition with the Rule of Thirds

 One of the easiest ways to make your travel photos much more visually interesting is to use the rule of thirds as a guide when you frame your shots. Just enable the grid on your camera and use the 3 by 3 grid to position elements in the frame in a specific third, on the gridlines, or at the intersection points.

 A good example would be to position the horizon on one of the horizontal gridlines, as opposed to right in the middle of the frame. Another would be to place the subject in the left or right third, or along the gridline near an intersection point.

 Get Close to Reveal Intriguing Details

 Sometimes there is magic in the details of travel photos, and to reveal them you should get close to the subject. One technique that can create particularly attractive photos is to ‘fill the frame’ with the subject.

 Keep in mind the rule of thirds can still help and should be used to position specific features of the subject that you want people to focus on. For example if the subject is a person, you could align their eyes using the rule of thirds.

 Try a Change in Perspective

 Most travel photos are snapped from a fixed perspective – i.e. the eye-level of the photographer. If you want yours to look more interesting and attractive, try to mix it up and change the perspective that you’re shooting from.

 Taking photos from below eye-level and close to the ground, or above it and overhead can produce much more unique travel photos that stand out and draw attention.

 Be Ready to Capture Fleeting Moments

 Have you ever come across something really interesting while you traveled but by the time you got your camera out and ready to snap a photo – the moment passed? Sometimes some of the most interesting travel photos are fleeting moments, and if you want to capture them you need to be ready.

 Keeping your camera in your hands, or hung around your neck for easy access is a good start in that regard. It will also help to learn about it and any shortcuts that could decrease the time it takes for you to snap a photo.

 Aside from the methods listed above, post-processing does have a part to play in making sure your travel photos look interesting – and for that you should try Movavi Photo Editor. It is easy to use and will let you edit the frame and composition, photo quality, and a variety of other areas.
