Travel and photography – two words that always seem to go hand in hand, like two peas in a pod. Some shutterbugs can manage to snap hundreds of photos a day, while others pick and choose – attempting to capture those rare fleeting moments that can encompass the feelings and adventures of the week in just one shot. Whatever camp you fall into, photographs of our travels are easily our most prized souvenirs.
I’m known by my friends for always traveling with five-plus different ways to capture photos and videos. With such a wide variety of equipment and devices to choose from nowadays, sometimes “just snapping a few pics” can turn into a stressful or daunting task. But as our parents and teachers used to say, practice makes perfect. Over the years I’ve picked up a few handy tips and tricks along the way – some given to me by amazing photographers and some learned by making mistakes that I will always regret!
I often get asked for photography advice, especially when friends or readers are preparing for a trip. While I’m always happy to help in any way I can, I realized that I could and should be offering these tidbits to everyone. As such, I am so pleased to announce a new partnership with Alamo Rent A Car where I will be providing family travel-related articles throughout the year on Alamo’s Scenic Route. My specialty will be photography tips and tricks, but you’ll definitely want to check the site for articles from my fellow Chief Travel Guides on a variety of topics that are sure to spark that thirst for exploration.
But don’t wait for me – there is already a wealth of valuable travel resources and inspiration on Alamo’s Scenic Route– from useful travel tips to quirky vacation tales. My favorite newest articles are popular one-way car trips and a fun DIY Tutorial for capturing travel memories in a bottle. I’m so excited to be a contributor for this awesome resource and hope you’ll check back in the next couple weeks for my first article!
