Digital photography affects the way people view the past. It is not about the camera or the beautiful images captured, but a means of telling powerful stories and creating awareness across cultures.
Travel photography makes sense of the commonalities that the world shares. So, why should you take photos as you travel?
You Understand Photo Composition Better
The human brain is very sensitive to a pattern. Travel photos can subconsciously expose you to great patterns that people will love. Time passes quickly, and landscapes tend to change constantly, depending on the hour of the day, the season and the weather. By taking lots of images, you can practise both on general photography rules, as well as expressing your own style.
This way, every other image tends to be even better than the last one. In the end, you'll get to the point where you'll be able to visualise the image you want to take, before even seeing the landscape itself.
You can Hold on to Memories
Having the chance to travel with a motorhome means that you are way agile than most, and you can see more places, in one go than an average traveller would. In turn that means, that you probably have more experiences from so many different places, which in the end of the day, you probably won't remember you've been there at all,
And this is where the beauty of photos derive. The travel photo effect does not strike you in the same day you captured them, but years later. As time passes, people grow older, fill their tank with more experiences, and therefore make some memories harder to reach. Such photos, do exactly this - They work as a sparkle for conversation, mind wandering and and memory re-freshness in the long run.
People will be interested in your Vacation Photos, if done right
While the majority of those who will glance upon your vacation photos, will probably roll their eyes, there is a good chance that a fraction of people would be int rested to see your vacation pics if presented in the right manner.
On average, people tend to be more interested in viewing the destination you've been tom itself, rather than looking at your face in front of a landmark or a museum. As a matter of fact, they are so much more interested in the experience you are having, because through you, they already consider whether they should pay a visit to that place next.
If you travel much, just focus on taking great photography, and people will love your pics.
