Here's a Great Strategy for Travel Photographers

by Kerry Drager

The reason serious shooters often feel stress on a trip is the self-imposed pressure to capture the definitive images. Celebrated tourist spots, world-class cities, and popular national parks all feature justifiably famous views that have been photographed over and over again. But at the same time, there’s also the desire to come up with innovative photographs. This "shoot the classics vs. strive for originality" disparity is always a challenge.

The best advice: Attack the top spots as soon as possible. That way, you get them out of your system. After recording these definitive images, you’ll be surprised how that reduces the anxiety, lifts the spirit, and makes you mentally prepared to be imaginative.

Have fun creating new images of old classics!
