With summer just around the corner, you’re probably already planning your dream vacation. Don’t pack your bags before you read our short guide on how to take the best travel shots and document your summer vacation with style.


The composition is the most important thing when creating a good photo. Think about the rule of thirds when trying to place your subject – you don’t want to just point and shoot. Think outside the box and experiment with different angles to get more interesting images.

The Best Light

Sunrise and sunset is the best time to create some impressive photos from your vacation. Try to plan in advance what you want to photograph as you have limited time at your disposal and you’ll manage to capture those beautiful changing colors for sure.


Capturing a great travel photo is going to be easier if you try to add perspective to your images. Make sure you’re adding a sense of depth by looking up or down, overlapping different elements in the shot or placing smaller elements near you.


Colors are an essential part of a photo, so try to use them to your advantage. Create some beautiful contrasts to make your images stand out.
