Going on a vacation soon? Tired of the same old vacation pics? Try these 9 Cool Ideas for Pictures to Take On Your Next Vacation.
These cool ideas for pictures are a great way to preserve that vacation feeling long after you get home. Those cold February days won’t be half as miserable when you’ve got these great vacation pics to look back on!
Read on for 9 fun vacation photo ideas for you to try out.
One of our favorite ideas for pictures is to change up the perspective. How about taking a photo looking up amongst the city buildings? Or straight down from a vantage point?
Distance is another way to vary your vacation picture ideas – tiny figures sitting in the distance on a beach lend your image a dramatic, spacious feeling.
If you like creative travel photo ideas you could try taking a photograph via the reflection of a scene in water or mirrored sunglasses.
Other artsy pic ideas are to look for a striking pop of color – maybe a red umbrella in a sea of black ones in rainy London?
Professional photographers love to capture images during the golden hour – the hour after sunrise and the hour before sunset. Colors are rich and golden in pics taken then.
If you miss that time of day, you could try the Sun Flare Preset on your camera to get those golden tones.
Some of the most fun and memorable images will be action shots – people reacting to a handful of confetti, snow, leaves or similar items.
Wouldn’t it be great to save all the memories in a meaningful slideshow to share with family and friends? So precious.
Instead of the usual selfie snap, use a timer and tripod so you can pose for the photo amidst the gorgeous blue water on the beach. Or set the shot up how you want it and ask someone else to take it for you.
You could get an underwater camera (they sell disposable ones) and try a really new perspective. These are great if you can look up at the sky and get those lovely lighting effects.
Another cool idea is to hold a photo (or maybe a map?) at the forefront of your image. These are great when you’re traveling to new places.
If you’ve ever seen those close-up images of herbs and spices at a middle-eastern bazaar, you’ll understand the power of rich colors. They really make your photos pop.
Perhaps you can find a mix of vibrant colors to photograph in a cityscape or in a local shop?
Silhouettes can make stunning images. Try shooting pictures during or just after sunset for the most dramatic images.
These work particularly well if you have a strong feature in the foreground. Maybe a person or group of people that you can see in outline. Iconic buildings can look amazing in silhouette against a vibrant sunset too.
