First of all you must tell a story. Often photographers get home with the perfect image after searching for hours, just to realize that it doesn’t tell the story of their journey.

An obvious, but often overlooked aspect of Sell travel photography is getting to know your subject. I don’t mean planning weeks ahead the best way to get to your destination and the best time to go (although this is important too). What do you do once you get there? Walk around the scene.

The lower the ISO number, the more detail your photos will have, so set it at the lowest number you can.

Perfect exposure means you must consistently achieve a good balance between highlight and shadow details: not always an easy thing to achieve, especially in a high contrast situation. Highlights should not be washed out and there should be at least some detail in the shadow areas.
