One year ago today, Amanda Kendle revealed a few tips for taking amateur travel photos to the next level, including:
Change the Angle
Take an over-visited tourist icon like the Eiffel Tower. While some “real travelers” would tell you to stay away, I have a soft spot for the once-condemned radio tower, but it doesn’t involve taking distant pictures of it adorning the Paris skyline. My Eiffel Tower memories all came at unusual angles: photos of the intricate metal structure from inside the elevator, or pictures from underneath the legs looking up.
Making an effort to see things in a way others don’t not only gives you more memorable pictures, you’ll also get more out of your travels.
