If you have ever opened a bright magazine and want to know how the photographer captures this deep moment: the cheetah rises in the plains; the sunset is striking on the beach. Or a city illuminated by lights at dusk. You can become a creator of the image: to do is hard work, dedication and spirit of some of the basic recommendations of the experts in the field. Nikon Ambassador Deborah Sandridge is a professional photographer specializing in world travel and art photography. “I like the experience of countless photo opportunities to visit new sites,” Sandridge said. “With some planning and exploration, you can make your travel adventure unforgettable.” Here are some of the useful tricks and hacks for the Travel Photography, have a look:
Search the site ahead of time to see what happens, what footage to bring, and identify possible creation opportunities. I like Google Earth, maps, tide maps, weather apps and regular location searches. The target application helps determine the best shooting position. With planning, I can explore snapshot ideas and learn about upcoming shooting events. These resources also save a lot of time by providing information about the best shooting time, navigation time and localization information. The study also helped me plan the lenses to be carried, as well as other necessary tools such as neutral density filters and tripods.
Choosing a lens is crucial for telling interesting stories. I always travel with a wide-angle lens. On the Nikon Z camera, I used the Z 14-30mm f / 4 wide-angle lens, which is great for capturing the city scenery and the wide scenery. I like to use the mid-range zoom, and when I need more distance, the NIKKOR Z 24-70 mm f / 2.8 S lens proved to be essential. Foreground zoom, such as the NIKKOR 70-200 mm f / 2.8 lens, allows you to move to get detailed photos. Based on the location and problems of African wildlife, it brings longer lenses, such as the Nikkor 200-500mm f / 5.6 lens.
Plan a hero shot for the best time of the day. When travelling, I like to shoot the sunrise all night. No matter what the shooting conditions, you can do a lot of things in every position, do my best, do my best, do my best. During the investigation, I will decide which location is better at sunrise, sunset and blue hour, and I often plan to shoot a dramatic “hero” during this time. After the sun goes down, the crowd dissipates and the street lights create exciting shooting conditions, making it easy to find interesting opportunities.
Take a snapshot. One of the main issues I have to consider during the shoot is how to make this photo personal and unique to composition? I often take a basic photo to check if it works, what doesn’t work, and where it can be improved. If there is a chance, I can use long exposures to blur any clouds or characters to create more artistic work. Reducing the opening while embedding part of the sun can make the wonderful sun appear inside the image. If I try to use a different shutter speed or aperture, I want to see “What happens.”
Equipment considerations include the type of camera equipment, which is the best tripod. If you are shooting under extreme conditions, such as near the ocean, a tripod is an ideal choice. If you are travelling a few miles in the city, it is best to use a lightweight tripod. A neutral density filter is required to help control the shutter speed. It can be used for video or slow shutter shooting, such as creating a smooth blur effect to quickly transfer water. When you reach the limits of the camera, the filters provide creative control and help you keep moving. I can’t wear enough microfiber clothes, and I always carry a small tactical flashlight with me.
Move, change the angle of view and angle. After selecting the settings, I will look for other photos. This may mean changing my angle and re-shooting the object in different ways. Or, this could mean looking for a new perspective to shoot. For example, I found a church with a long history, and even with a larger lens, I couldn’t capture what it meant. However, it allows me to find coffee to find a rooftop cafe that can provide a wide view I want. You can embed some old cars and bright skies by simply changing the angle of view.
