While some people like big and expensive souvenirs, others return home only with a bunch of beautiful photographs. Do you want to improve your travel photography skills? Here are some great, but super easy traveling photography tips everyone should follow.

Google, Google, Google

It is very important to do your pre-traveling research. There are quite a few ways to find the best spots for picture making. First, google it. The Internet is a great place for seeking advice. Second, talk to friends who have been there. And lastly, receive advice from the locals. They can reveal all the mysterious, yet beautiful places worth visiting and photographing.

Good Lighting is Key

Wake up early, and go back to bed late if you want to catch the perfect lighting. Catching the “golden hours” aka an hour before sunrise and an hour after sunset will reward you with romantic photographs.

The Dress Code

Every good photographer should have a pair of good travel clothes. You never know where your path could lead you. Why wasting it because of unappropriated gear.

Be Nice to Locals

If you are into portrait photography, you should know that kindness is everything. Being rude and taking photos of the locals without permission can get you into trouble. Learn how to say “can I take a photo of you” in the local language.

Curiously confused . A portrait of a monk whom i met on my visit to Tashichho Dzong – A famous monastery in Thimpu (Capital City of Bhutan) . When asked to if monks in the monastery can be clicked or not he gave us this funny pose . During our trip to visit to Bhutan we realized why it is known as the Happiest Country in the world , it's the people who makes it one. . . . . #travel #explore #letsgosomewhere #stayandwander #lonelyplanet #passionpassport #finditliveit  #exploremore  #travelstoke #wonderful_places #bhutan #himalayas #portraits #portraits_ig #pixel_ig  #portrait_perfection #portraits_universe #portraitmood #featurepalette  #rsa_portraits #makeportraits #profile_vision #top_portraits #life_portraits #postthepeople #justgoshoot #artofvisuals #igPodium_portraits #newface #endlessfaces
