There are basically two types of travel photos. The ones you take of your travel partners or family everywhere they go and the more serious ones of famous locations and a destinations landscapes etc. When you take serious travel photos you sometimes have the benefit of not having to carry your camera around with you all day long as you only need it at certain locations
If you don’t want to cart the camera around, it’s a good idea to plan and do a little research. You can make a list of attractions, and points of interest that you want to shoot beforehand.
Try to plan ahead of time each venue you want to capture and research its opening and closing times and the best time of day to visit etc.
If you don’t have any specific locations in mind, check out information on the whole city or area to see that the most interesting sites and buildings are. This will allow you to find the best scenic spots for your photos taking.
If your holiday is in the countryside and not a big city, it’s always a good idea to check out the area’s national parks and reserves as the scenery is breathtaking in most of them.
If you follow your instincts and interests you’re bound to get some great holiday snapshots.
