How to take the best travel photos

Having photos to remember trips by is one of my favorite things about traveling. I like to think of them as mini souvenirs we collect along the way. Whether I am snapping shots of the kids in Las Vegas this week, or getting the perfect angle on photo shoot location back home – I’ve learned a great tip along the way for taking bright and festive shots when not I’m not in the studio.

Use your camera's snow setting year around to take the best travel photos.

To make travel photos bright and clean, I use the snow setting on my camera (or phone).

Haven’t we waited months for the opposite of snow you ask? Well yes. But the “snow” setting on my camera is going to give me brighter photos all around. It’s designed to make the whites brighter, it’s naturally going to give the shot a great balance of light achieveing that perfect bright look – no matter how strong the sun is shinning.

I’ve shared this and 8 other traveling photo tips right here, if you’d like to see.
