What is more fun than to travel to new places and get to do what you love along the way? Travelling to a new destination for photography is always exciting as it will challenge you to explore your creativity. New places will test your photography skills of what you learned at home to be applied. Try photographing people in that area, a similar theme in the new setting for e.g. churches in Europe will be different to those in Asia and we definitely recommend street photography for that vibrant diverse colour at the local market.
You are not familiar with a new place as much as you are with your camera. Are you ready for low light photos? You may be travelling to specific places for that special and unique photo. It will help if you research on the place and have look at the best photos taken of it. You could use the same angle as the previous photographer or you add your unique stamp on it. You know your photography style so always plan ahead for the best time to photograph a location be it cityscapes, cultures or nature.
