WHERE TO CREATE THE BEST PHOTOS
First of all, the main thing to do is find the best photography hot spot location to do photography. Most of all, the critical factors are location, location, and location. You need the proper subject matter for photography to create incredible, jaw-dropping pictures. While most of us focus on technique, we must concentrate on the area we shoot at just as much.
Would you like to learn how to create dynamic images and Fine Art? That is what this magazine is all about. The first part of creating incredible photography is to find outstanding subject matter. It would be best to do several things to make something different from other artists. We are all about travel photography, photography, photography locations, and photography hot spots.
You can read about some places in more detail on our Travel Photography Pages.
Dynamic images are created with moving waters, and the milky water effect is used to awe your fans. Look at how to shoot waterfall photography if you need some pointers.
Grab a Think Tank Camera Bag, head to an incredible destination, and start creating Fine Art for yourself.
HOW TO FIND GREAT PHOTOGRAPHY LOCATIONS
The main thing to do is use our Photography Magazine as a photography location guide! :)
Pamela Goodyer had been visiting and creating photographs on and off for fifteen years, each trip yielding the potential for new shots. Now that she was nearly retired, she looked forward to dedicating her time solely to photography. But before then, there were still many places left unseen.
So, for now, you can start with the basics if you need help finding what you are looking for here. What kind of photos are you looking to take? Are you looking for a scenic landscape or a more urban setting? Once you know what type of photos you’re looking for, research different areas offering those views. You can look online at pictures or before visiting places in person to understand better what you can expect.
Could you search for images online? Then, hit the images button below the top line, and tons of pictures will appear. If you have the budget, as we do, to jump on a plane to a distant location and the time to travel, this works well. Or you can use it for your photography bucket list.
You can do a more local search and use terms like Maine Photography Locations or Milky Way Photography Location. You can also narrow it down by town.
JOIN PHOTOGRAPHY CLUBS
If you belong to a photography club, you can ask group members where to go for great photography, but please remember, you must look at their images or online images. We have encountered photographers who won’t say; I have been doing photography for about a month before they tell you the most incredible place they have ever photographed. Could you be sure to understand your source of information? Asking Pamela Goodyer or Peter Like, the best spots in the world to photograph, or your neighbor with a month’s experience are drastically different.
TIME OF YEAR & MILKY WAY
Before planning a trip, it’s always important to check the weather and temperature for the photography location. Costa Rica, for example, has seen an increase in rainfall this year because of El Niño. This can damper photography activities and may leave us feeling soggy and disappointed. Then certain months have much more rain than others.
On the other hand, Iceland boasts around-the-clock daylight during the summer months. Sure, the midnight sun provides some vibrant spectacle for sightseers. Still, because of its northern latitude, stargazers often miss out on seeing the Milky Way – which could be a deciding factor when booking your photography trip.
Also, you can only see the northern lights in the fall and winter months in Iceland, but will it be too cold for you? September and October are good to have the best temperatures and still see the northern light.
GO ON A PHOTO TOUR
We run Extra Eyes Photo Tours – Check out all our tours in this ad. We go to only the best, most dynamic photography locations and put the perfect subject matter right before your eyes. We instruct you as much as you would like to be instructed. (Some high-end pros come along and desire less instruction.) We have created many award-winning photos on our photo tours.
HOW TO PICK THE RIGHT PHOTO TOUR
When selecting your next vacation destination, why not try something different and join a sightseeing tour? Cost is essential when planning any tour and can vary significantly depending on the location. Read all available tours to compare prices, activities, accommodation, meals, entrance fees, and transportation. The most significant advantage of taking a tour versus self-organizing is receiving specialized instruction for your chosen activity. Ensure you understand the group size or student/leader ratio before booking to get the best out of the tour.
If you are looking for a simple photo-taking experience without needing guidance from the leader, you can just look elsewhere. Some tours do not include photography instruction but solely provide access to unique locations at perfect timing—avoid these if possible. If you decide to take a photography tour, it would be beneficial to VIEW ALL THE PHOTOS TAKEN ON THE TOUR! We cannot emphasize this enough.
Instructors and Locations
We have seen incredible instructors who know how to take you to dynamic locations, and we saw one tour on social media to one place for seven days. It was the most boring location we have seen. We could drive through it, stop two or three times in this desert-type area, and move on to try to find dynamic image possibilities. How you can create jaw-dropping award-winning images in the desert for seven days is beyond us. If you are good, you may come home with 10 to 15 okay pictures and possibly an award winner. Still, on suitable tours, you have numerous dynamic locations daily with massive amounts of opportunity for excellent photography.
However, good instructors will guide their students to dynamic locations every day, giving plenty of scope for genuinely amazing photographs. With such a tour, you could come home with hundreds of good shots–and possibly many different award winners. You will discover all you need to know by checking out their photographs in depth.
