Do your travel photographs look just like everyone else’s?

If you wonder why you lug your digital SLR half way around the world and still come home with postcard images, it’s time to revisit the way you photograph your travels. Here is part 4 in my new series of Better Travel Photography – a guide to getting great travel photos that don’t look like everyone else’s..

Here’s today’s tip – Find a new angle to shoot from
A great way to enhance your travel photography is to turn the camera forty five degrees and capture the objects at an angle.

So, for example, capture tall buildings and lighthouses at just the right angle and you’ll have an image seldom seen before.

Even rows of buildings shot on an angle give you a double bonus, repeated elements and a new angle on capturing them – the result is something very special.
