I love taking pictures on our trips, but we don't have the money for good quality equipment. We didn't bring a tripod on this trip-- because we don't own one. We didn't bring a nice camera because, again, we don't have one. So how did we get this lil' beauty? Here are four semi-helpful travel photo tips!
1. A cell phone, a rock, and a little creativity can go a long way when it comes to taking travel photos together! A selfie stick is a handy cheap tool too, but never underestimate the power of the good ol' fashion self-timer. Besides this shot, we got so many others too-- awkward, hilarious, photo-bombed shots-- that also capture memories from this day. I'll remember the tranquility of standing next to my love on the edge of this river, sure, but I'll also remember setting the timer, running over to him like a maniac and laughing at the crazy results.
2.it's all about those angles! Pick a strange perspective you and you might be pleasantly surprised! This goes four changing poses as well! The right combo of pose + angle = an artsy or flattering pic
3. Bring a friend or two who also want good pics beyond just the standard selfie. Better yet! Make a friend by offering to take some pics for them and do your best to take a few! Usually people want to return the favor.
4. We've saved our best photo tip for last: laugh and have a good time! Don't let getting that perfect pic take away from the experience itself. You'll look back and smile even if your hair was crazy or your friend has a goofy expression. In 10 years you'll probably still cringe at your fashion choices, but your smile and laugh is ALWAYS beautiful.
