Who on a trip, weekend or out-of-door trip doesn’t take at least one photo? Whether it’s to have a nice memory on the cell phone gallery or to “catch” likes on Instagram or for work… we all take pictures! But how do you take nice photos on the go? There are small tricks and some tricks that we have learned over time and that in this post we reveal to you!
True, improvised photos are often the most beautiful but it is not easy to get the right shot at the right time so if you have the chance, take an on-site inspection to find some hidden corner or to understand what might be the best time for the right light. Still, very important to take nice photos on the go could be to understand the turnout of people at a known point of interest and what could be a strategic location to take your photo and prevent the lady on duty from going right as you take. If you can’t do this, at least try to document yourself and find inspiration on channels like Flickr or Pinterest (by the way you follow us su Pinterest?)
To take nice photos on the go,light is not an option… is the rule. The best hours are sunriseand sunset, youwill not need filters to have unique photos. Another fundamental thing: if you want to photograph the center of an islet or even a large city then choose the sunrise… not only for the light but also because you will find fewer people and it will be easier to shoot in peace. During the day remember to always keep the sun behind you and avoid the shots that are half in the sun and half in the shade. If you’re using a REFLEX, don’t forget a tripod for night or sunset photos.
- If you want to take some more refined photos then forget for a moment the subject in the middle of the composition. Rather, experiment with one of the basic rules of photography the rule of thirds. As you can see, the reflex and also the smartphone camera have a grid on the display that divides it into various squares. Then try to place your subject in one of the places where the lines intersect; you will have much more particular photos with new cuts and perspectives.
- Be careful when photographing the sea or the horizon; Always try to follow the grid lines so that you don’t capture them crooked (or distorted).
A LITTLE IMAGINATION
We have just talked about rules but to take beautiful photos on the go we can also let ourselves go a little and immortalize some details: the pattern of a carpet, a row of colored tiles, baskets with spices or colored jewelry. In short, never stop for the usual photo of the Eiffel Tower, look for details that tell the sensory experience of your trip.
If you have a blog or Instagram profile (here you will find ours, follow us!!!) you will almost certainly be attentive to the photographic style and its consistency. What we suggest is to do a research on the style you want to give to your photos. Look for inspiration on Pinterest but also on WE HEART IT and pay attention to detail: light, composition, color matching, grain and fades but also poses that you could be inspired by.
- The things you DON’T HAVE to and CAN’t absolutely forget to take nice photos on the go are:
- Reserve SD cards
- If you use a reflex take at least two objectives with you (e.g. one for portrait and one for landscape)
- A cloth that allows you to clean the lens (better kit)
- Strap to hang your REFLEX around your neck and always have it at hand
