A Beginner’s Guide to Learning Travel Photography

Start smaller and grow from there.

Testing Ground

Find a local park in your neighborhood, preferably within walking distance or a short drive. Make this your testing ground for your equipment and photography routines.

Any urban park has all the essential elements of travel photography: landscapes, cityscapes, people, etc…

Plan your visits during different times of the day. Learn how to deal with the harsh midday light, overcast, rain, sunsets, and sunrises. In doing so, you will figure out what minimum equipment you need to cover different scenarios of travel photography.

For example, I realized pretty early on that a minimalistic approach to photography suits me the best, and all I need is a camera with a walk-around lens. For years, I used a combination of a Canon 60D + Sigma 17-70mm and now I have a similar setup of a Sony a6000 + Sony 16-70mm.
