Avoid Main Tourist Attractions
Popular tourist attractions are just that – popular with tourists. To show the local flavor and make your photos stand out from the masses, you’ll want to go off the beaten path, just as the locals do.
Perhaps you use the tourist attraction as a starting point before exploring peripheral areas. Also, try asking the employees at tourist attractions where THEY go during their time off! Locals will tend to avoid the popular crowded spots, so they’re your best resource.
Change Your Perspective
It’s easy to get stuck in a rut, but changing up your angles or perspectives can infuse much-needed variety into your travel photography.
Also, presenting a different perspective or technique can help your photos stand out from the typically seen.
Try switching subjects, shooting techniques, camera height, or lens used.
