After travelling and capturing the places I have been, I thought I would let you in on a few secrets to make your travel photos look like the ones on the postcards (and Itchy Feet Escapades). My name is Guy and I am the photographer behind the lens of Guy Watson Photography.
Everything thing people do these days is documented by photos. So much as the online space is dominated with millions of photos. These can be taken by your smart phone – quick access for uploading, a point and shoot – lightweight, DSLR’s (digital Single Lens reflex) – for the more advanced and the latest on the market, mirrorless cameras.
Choose your equipment carefully. Remember you will have to carry it, so taking lots of lens with you will weigh you down.
I travel with:
- Nikon D3000 (a little outdated in today’s standard)
- 18-55mm Nikon Lens
- 55-200mm Nikkor Lens
- Gorilla trip pod
Once you have decided on the camera you are going to take, it comes down to the fun part – taking the photos.
Make sure the light is on your subject. This could be a natural light like the sun or a flash. I tell people a camera takes photo of light not colour. For example, if you are in a dark room, you will not be able to see any colour as there is no light to shine on the items.
