Thinking about adding "Traveling/Destination Photographer"

How many selfies do you take when you travel? Do you take Instagrammable photos?

In July, I was in Mexico visiting family and we went to Acapulco! And let me tell you that it was amazing! I love the beach overall! So, any place that has a beach is going to be amazing to me. I took a lot of pictures with my iPhone, Canon camera, and GoPro. And no, these are not "Instagrammable photos" - ones that are astonishing and look like they belong in a traveling magazine. My photos look like anyone took them.


However, I did edit a handful of photos. Color correcting the photos does a big difference. Scroll down and take a look.

I had a great time at Acapulco.


Becoming a traveling photographer in the future

Can you tell the difference between the iPhone, DSLR, and Go-Pro photos? I love the photos I took and I'm going to frame them.


But I want to take "Instagramable and Traveling Magazine" worthy portraiture. And in order to do that I'm going to need to work on the following:

  1. Posing - be confident and become a model when I'm taking selfies and learn to direct my family into a fun pose when taking their picture

  2. Take a tripod with me and learn how to take self-portraits with a timer

  3. Go all out with my wardrobe. Invest in amazing skirts and long dresses. Or buy variant and cultural clothes.

Dear photographer, if you're reading this, do you have any recommendations on how to take Instagramable photos while traveling? Drop them in the comments below. I would appreciate it.


And, dear reader, te dieron ganas de ir a Acapulco? Por ami me gustaria ir de nuevo.
