Take Better Travel Photos

How to make the most of your next trip and return home with a portfolio of memorable images

The Four Ps To Take Better Travel Photos
Practice. No artist will ever get better at their craft without serious amounts of practice. The good thing is, practicing in photography is fun. Keep shooting in new ways and experimenting with new techniques.

Patience. Don’t expect every shot to be amazing nor think that every time you try something new it will be a giant success. You’ll learn a lot from your failures. The trick is, only show people your best work.

Persistence. Don’t give up! Good things don’t happen to those who simply wait; they happen to those who work their butts off. Don’t be distracted by negative thoughts and give up. The next shot may be the perfect one.

Photoshop. Capturing a great image is just the beginning. Learning how to bring your vision to life by post-processing with the powerful software available to photographers today is the icing on the cake. You’ll never regret getting really good at Photoshop. Trust me.

Rice terraces and a tree of life

Самодисциплина и познание Себя. Образ жизни определяет кто мы есть. Так получилось, что в начале своего жизненного пути я выбрал искусство. Сегодня я занимаюсь многими видами современного искусства, и организую вокруг себя людей.

Искусство Быть Собой. Сайт https://mikhaliuk.com

Фотография, хореография, путешествия, боевые искусства…
Хореограф- постановщик, учитель.

Организую фотопутешествия в разные места земного шара. http://mikhaliuk.com/Tours-of-amazing-places-on-the-planet

Не важно что я снимаю, Все мои фотографии несут либо смысл либо состояние (ощущения) Форма лишь продолжение моего духа и моей индивидуальности.
Я не постиг Себя, но я на Пути…

See the most breathtaking national parks around the world

The United States may lay claim to the world’s first national park, but it’s far from the only country whose most prized lands are officially protected by the government.

After the establishment of Yellowstone in 1872, the national park concept took hold across America and beyond. Canada founded its first national parks in the 1880s; the idea eventually spread across the Atlantic to Great Britain after World War I, then later to its colonies. Japan and Mexico embraced the concept in the 1930s and dozens of other countries followed suit over the course of the 20th century.

Ready for action and adventure

Insights and ideas from Scott Markewitz, action sports and lifestyle photographer

“I love doing lifestyle and portrait work in addition to action sports photography. I think I have a knack for capturing the spirit of my subjects and really conveying what they are experiencing at the time. There’s a certain light behind their eyes—a sense of adventure and fearlessness that I try to convey in my shots. Those fleeting moments of emotion and human interaction shine through. When I capture them, it’s a tremendously rewarding feeling.”
