Improving Travel Photos

As i write this I am on vacation with my wife in San Francisco and I think that taking a look at some example photographs may help you take better travel photos. While there are plenty of the basic snapshot photos, I also want to capture something a little different sometimes.

Here is a basic snapshot photo of my wife with the GoCar we rented for the day.

There isn’t much composition here, just a quick fun shot to show people this wacky little car we drove all over town in.

While the following photo here uses better composition by moving the main subject off-center paying close attention to the ‘rule of thirds’.

While both of these are quick shots without setting up any lighting or posing the subject, spending that extra second or two in-camera to compose a shot well can be the difference between an ok photo and a real keeper.
