Here’s the round-up of this week’s #TTOT on “Travel Photography!”
@traveldesigned – Besides Instagram … What are your favorite photo apps?
@MiddleSeatView: I use my Flickr app a lot though to keep track of my Project 365 photos – am storing all them on there in a set @KiltandaCamera: I’m really liking “Pixlr-o-Matic”, and “Just Pictures” to see all my stuff in one place
@travelingeditor: Snapseed, for all pre-Instagram needs @BajaByBus: We use Picasa 3 for editing and organising images @ni_gem: Colour touch from Android App. You can edit your pic in many ways @FraserApartment: Filterstorm! It’s got all of the basic adjustments – cloning tools, selective adjustment and fairly effective noise reduction @TravelBlggr: I like Postagram, Stachematic, BeFunky, Photo Editor+ and Camera+
@earthXplorer: Good app for panoramas – AutoStich
@GregGoodman: Camera 360 for android is my smart phone photography app of choice @traveldudes: Camera FX for Android is very useful and worth the buy
@AmbleResorts – A picture is worth a thousand words. Share a travel photo that tells a story!
@mariapulice How can you still capture great travel photos when the weather is not cooperating?
@TheAlexLop: weather can make for some incredibly dramatic photos @Intrepid_Travel: Use those cloudy days to play around with your photography, like going black and white @MalloryOnTravel: Harsh midday sunlight is the biggest enemy, get under shade, use fill flash and if camera allows it try bracketing @FarWriter: In rainy weather, make photos pop by adding the colors red, fuschia, orange, yellow to scene, such as with a scarf, umbrella, coat @lethers: Photograph the detail; often cities look dramatic in the wet so keep shooting; adjust white balance to warm things up @GFTravelette: Cloudy days can be great for photos – especially if you’re photographing people
@findmypassport Most photogenic place you have visited?
@KristineOnPause: Rolling hills/farm land in Kenya – seemed draped with green velvet tacked in place with acacia trees @nickminers: Iceland, because it has EVERYTHING. Mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, black sand, icebergs, geysers, cute villages, beautiful people
@backpackingmatt: Without a doubt, New Zealand. A photographer’s dream
@markvogler: Antarctica because the light is AMAZING @RachelLewis89: Bosnia. The incredible natural beauty combined with horrific war scars was genuinely moving
@intrepid_travel : India so photogenic with its monuments, landscapes, colors and incredible people @LorraineTravels: Santorini, Greece, without a doubt
@TripCrafters – 3 useful travel photography tips for beginners?
@christinahegele: Forced perspective. Early morning photography. Take pictures of everyday scenes
@MalloryOnTravel: Be observant, be curious but remember to ‘zoom with your feet’
@caskifer: 1, Rule of thirds; 2, stabilize the camera in low light; and 3, use fill flash (or add it via software)
@amyfjackson: Get close, no flash @FareBuzz: Always keep your camera ready to go. You don’t ever want to miss a moment, especially while traveling @earthXplorer: Clean your lens
@lizcleere: Don’t be shy. Shoot in the early morning or evening for best light. Don’t just shoot from eye height, change angle @TravelBlggr: Always make sure the light source is behind you … pack an extra battery … take lots @Goodtrippers: Get to love ‘macro’ focus – sometimes most intriguing pics are in the close-up detail @Boz23: Be respectful
