You’ve earned the time off from work. It’s coming up soon and you’ve found a possible location for your vacation. Now, let’s make sure you create some great landscape photography while you’re there.
Here are 10 tips for getting the best landscape photos possible while you’re relaxing away from the daily grind of your job.
1. PLAN AHEAD
You want your landscape photos to come out just right.
Research the specific and surrounding areas you’re vacationing to see what photos have been taken by other photographers. Google image search is a powerful tool for you to get some ideas on potential subjects before you travel.
Perhaps you don’t want to take the same standard views, at the same standard spots, as every other tourist does.
Look at photos of the terrain and the environment that you’ll be encountering.
Viewing photographs from other landscape photographers is a great way to get some ideas and become inspired to create your own style of landscape photography.
I got the idea for shooting these fascinating textures in the grass because I saw a similar photo in an online gallery a month or two before my visit to this location in Acadia National Park, Maine.
