I remember that time when I was in college, I was a little poor, but I like traveling very much. I didn't say that traveling is for the body and soul to have a way. For me, the purpose of traveling is to make a slight difference in the monotonous life.
However, when you travel, you often encounter such problems. I wonder if you have any sympathy: Save up the frugal money to travel, and ask your friends if they want to play together. As a result, nobody seems to respond. I thought nobody responded just because I was ugly. Then I asked a girl friend to find out that I had thought a lot: not only was I ugly, but more importantly because I couldn't take pictures. Until then, I learned to take pictures and travel without worrying about my sister who didn't travel with me anymore.
So, if you're like me a few years ago, and you're rejected or pass because you can't provide strategies or take good pictures while traveling, then this article hopes to help you. Note: Except for the special annotation, all the photos in this article were taken by the Moonbird himself.
Different Cities in Travel
Xiamen is most impressed by Xiamen's Haikunming. It's so nice to see a large sea gull flying to you. There are many Xihu people in Hangzhou on rainy days, but they seem very quiet. Beijing only feels that when taking photos, Beijing people seldom go to Guangzhou where it rains every time. So the picture is very dark. Shanghai takes the most pictures. In many cities, I don't think it's enough to take pictures of Chongqing. Apart from the beautiful pictures, the most important thing I want is the pictures of the bowl of noodles just sent out, which I took with my mobile phone. The first point I want to express is that photographic equipment is not the most important factor that restricts you from taking good pictures while traveling. The following is the key to traveling.
Before traveling, you don't need to go to the honeycomb first.
1. How to Search for Photo Scenes of Travel Location
In addition to the mainstream travel apps, there are actually a lot of niche but very useful search methods. Instagram is the most commonly used way to search before I travel. There are many cool photographers and photos. Searching for city names can find many beautiful local photos. The corresponding coordinates can sometimes be found in the comments section of the blogger. You can also communicate with the blogger by private letter. (Pictures from Instagram screenshots)
If you can't ask, Baidu or Google Map Reading can help you. All you have to do is look at the photo spot in the map. Secondly, the local public numbers of many major tourism provinces will help you summarize various scenes suitable for photography; if you can not find them, you can also search for keywords such as: city name? Photo, there is absolutely where you want to take photos. (Pictures from Wechat screenshots)
2. Pre-trip shooting equipment
I have witnessed the travel photography equipment of several photographers and friends: two cameras, three lenses, one tripod, UAV plus batteries, stabilizers and various chargers.... To be honest, most of the photographers in the brigade can be said to have carried their equipment on their backs.
If you're like me, most of the time you take pictures with your mobile phone, Charging Po can ensure that your phone is always electrically photographed, headphones can act as shutters in crowded scenes, and small tripods can take pictures of you and your friends.
Secondly, umbrellas, sunglasses and hats are all very practical equipment in travel. It can not only protect against sunshine and rain, but also act as props in shooting. Feel the photos with umbrella, sunglasses and caps. Umbrella cap Sunglasses
3. About the Costume Matching in Travel
This is one of the keys to determining whether your travel photos look good or not. Please give up those cute or fancy Princess clothes.
Believe that photography is a subtraction process. Choose clothes with pure or simple colors as far as possible. Long skirts are the best choice. Other clothes with long legs or slim appearance, such as high-waisted pants and boots, are all good choices. Individuals think red or orange is the best, black and white is the safest. Secondly, let the color of the clothing match as far as possible not more than three colors, you can do some understanding of the local scenery beforehand, so that you can better match clothes. For example, the main place to go is the sea. Then, the clothes with bright colors will surely be easier to produce films, so that they can stand out enough in the shooting scene. Some travel photography tips, if possible, please give up the pretentious scissors when taking pictures...
1. When you go to a tourist attraction, you must choose the right time and scene.
Since I went to a scenic spot in Lijiang a few years ago, I have a feeling of indescribable rejection of the so-called scenic spots in China. However, for many friends traveling to other places, they have to go to the scenic spots. Otherwise, how can you tell others that you have been to this place? Photographs taken at different locations and time periods of the same scenic spot will be quite different. When there are more people, we can consider taking part, and when there are fewer people, we can try more angles. Secondly, don't schedule too tight before traveling, because there are often many uncertain sceneries on the road. All we have to do is to go to more places without people. The scene of piles.

Shanghai Lujiazui changed its shooting direction and the scenery was totally different.
What you need to know is that rainy days are good for taking pictures by lakes, foggy days are good for taking pictures of city buildings and portraits, not only sunny days. 2. These methods can be used for your reference in photographic posture.
First of all, you have to know whether you want to take a portrait of a person with a large scene or a close-range portrait. If the former is the case, the pose is not important at all, even if you grin your teeth and crack your mouth when taking a picture, because the person is small enough to be seen. What we need to do at this time is not to deliberately pose and interact with the scene. (Portraits of people in big scenes)
If you want to shoot the latter, but look at the lens will be confused, then simply do not look at it. Looking back, pulling your hair, pushing the door, wanton walking or running, with the help of prospects, these are all good photographic postures, and they don't look pretentious at all.
Keep in mind that if the face is not very good-looking, it's better to give up the big face to shoot it, because after taking such a long picture of younger sister's paper, really few dare to control the face without any cover. (For a lady with a normal face but a nice side face, all she has to do is not clap her face.)
3. Photographing on social platforms is skillful
Nine maps have more visual impact than single maps, but nine maps can follow some tips. For example, make your photos uniform and beautiful. If you can survive, you can make up nine photos of the same subject for re-distribution. I'm sure I'm very impressed. The last thing I want to say is that life should not only be meticulous at present, but also pursuing poetry and distance at the right time.~
