They key to travel photography: getting rid of tourists!

Hello everyone,

today I am going to share a little tip with you. You know what separates a good monument photo from a snapshot that anybody can take? Tourists!

Generally the photos that poeple love from famous locations appear almost toursit free... which of course is either very (very very...) difficult or even impossible.

So what can you do?

In this post I am going to share the easy tip, in the next one we'll go over a more complex one.

So today's easy tip is, find an angle that hides the tourists:

The reason I took this photo from a low angle and with a cactus as foreground element is not only for composition, there was tourists all over the place in front of this Church in Oaxaca (Mexico). By placing my camera carefully I was able to get rid of all of them, no photoshop involved!

So next time you are trying to shoot a crowded place try to look for interesting objects to hide the unwanted tourists.

Next up, removing tourists when there is no object to hide them, stay tuned!
