5 More Tips for Taking Fun, Travel Photographs
6. The Jumping Photo
The jumping photo was a popular submission on the comments on my last post, so I decided to lead with this one. Find a favorite landmark and have a buddy press the shutter as you soar skyward. You’ll need to take several photos to time the photo just right. But when you do, you’ll have a truly fun picture that anyone will smile at.
7. Strike a Pose
Don’t just stand tall and smile in front of the landmark you’re documenting, but invite the viewer into the scene. This pose has become the signature look here at adventureswithben.com.
8. Use a Cut-Out
Sure they can sometimes be tacky-touristy, but with an added funny face they can also be fantastic. Bring out your inner child, stick your head through that hole and smile!
9. Shoot from Below
Most of the time when we take pictures of ourselves on vacation, the photographer is on the same plain as us. Vary the perspective by having the photographer shoot from below where you are. Find a safe place that’s a few feet above the photographer and have them angle up.
10. The In-the-Middle-of-Eating Shot
This one could just be me, but there’s something funny about taking a photo of someone eating. Perhaps it’s the candid-nature of the shot, or the fact that we’re using different facial muscles than we normally do. Whatever it is, it’s fun.
If you’re like me, I take hundreds upon hundreds of photos when I’m on vacation. Family and friends can quickly get tired of seeing the same pose over and over again. So follow these 10 tips to make everyone jealous of the awesome time you had!
