TTIM 114 – How To Take Great Travel Photos

We often get emails and messages from listeners who ask us advice on how to take great travel photos, so this week we wanted to record a special episode. We don’t have the usual interview with a guest this time but decide instead to spend some time giving you our best tips to help you get better photos every time you take a trip.

Some examples of the topics we covered include:

  1. The importance of a shot list
  2. Telling stories
  3. The power of one
  4. Having a theme in mind
  5. Watching your backgrounds
  6. Timing and anticipation
  7. Don’t be shy
  8. Point and shoot

This is an episode packed with useful, practical information, but if you love interviews don’t worry. We’ll be back next week with another awesome guest.

If you found this useful and would love more detail, don’t miss Ralph’s next free webinar (Tuesday, February 20 at 8 pm CT) where he will be going much more in depth about his favorite tips for taking great travel photographs.

Duration 45m 41s.
