Tips for taking portraits and travel photography

Check out my article on and get some tips on taking portraits

As I started out my trip, my biggest struggle in terms of photography was taking good portraits. It seemed like every time I was taking photographs of people, the outcome was never what I was aiming and hoping for. It was frustrating sometimes as I came across the most unique situations, beautiful and photogenic, and just didn’t seem to be able to get that one shot. At one point I realized that I had to deliberately put time and effort in order to improve my portraits. It took a lot of practice, trial and error and it was hard. It was hard to overcome that awkward feeling when approaching complete strangers, not knowing their language and the natural reservation we have when it comes to other people’s privacy. But by constant trial and error and the help by some amazing photographers I met on the way, things slowly improved.
I still have a very long way to go, I still have a lot to learn and I am not sure if I will ever get where I want to be but I wanted to share the things I realized during this journey of becoming a better photographer. The guys over at gave me the opportunity to cover this topic – you can check out the article here. I hope it can be of help for some of you guys and of course, if you have other tips on how to take better portraits while on the road or have further questions, let me know and drop a comment below.

  1. Having read this I believed it was extremely informative.
    I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this informative article together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a significant
    amount of time both reading and posting comments. But so what,
    it was still worthwhile!

    I agree with you. Taking photos while travelling is a little bit hard. You can never repeat it many times like when you’re shooting a model. Once you capture those images you should be careful before doing it, make sure that it will turn into a great photography.

    • Hi Mich, I wouldn’t say it’s hard but different than shooting at home with a model. You have to make the best of it but you can still influence the outcome. And a good travel picture or travel portrait can be very rewarding and sure makes for a great memory …. What type of photography is your favorite then? Cheers, Philipp

  3. Very informative. Travel photography will keep on reminding us how was our experience during the trip. And i agree it requires some effort to make the best out of it.

    • Thanks Phil, I appreciate you stopping by my site. It does require some effort but it is definitely worth it. And if it i your pasion, it is not even an actual effort but rather fun.
