How to Capture Perfect Wildlife Shots on Solo Adventures

Wildlife photographers often travel solo, as this allows them to be more flexible with their schedules and gives them the ability to more easily adapt to changing weather and lighting conditions as well as being able to accommodate an animal’s schedule. Being solo also reduces the risk of disturbing wildlife, which is often vital for capturing natural behaviors and ensuring the safety of both the photographer and the animals. The drawback of being a solo traveling wildlife photographer is that you are on your own to master the technical, physical, and environmental challenges that come with photographing the natural world. Thankfully, we thought we’d offer some of our top practical tips to help you master your skills and capture more professional-quality wildlife shots on your next solo adventure.

Luminar Neo: Achieve Impressive Photo Editing results with Little Effort or Time

As a travel blogger, it should come as no surprise that I take a lot of photos. But for every thousand photos I take (that’s basically one day’s worth!), I might only end up with a handful that are worthy enough to share with the world.

The biggest problem is photo editing, because this can be extremely time consuming. I tend to stick with basic edits because traditional photo editing software takes a long time to master and use if you’re diving into all available tools.

Now though, AI technology is entering the world of photo editing to make our lives easier. And I’m excited!

Luminar Neo, with its innovative AI-driven tools offers an easy-to-use photo editing software that provides novice photo editors the chance to easily create professional-looking images in just a few clicks, if not just a single click.

Many professional photographers have already reviewed Skylum’s popular new Luminar Neo photo editing software, but I’ve found these reviews go into extensive detail that can get a bit complicated to understand.

So I want to offer a more simplified beginner’s guide to Luminar Neo in laymen’s terms of what you can expect with this product and how it can help you start rescuing your images and allowing you to quickly and easily meet all your creative photography needs.

Because we all deserve the photos we see in our mind when we initially click the shutter!

Complete a Travel Memory Book by the End of Your Trip? Yes, Please!

Complete a Travel Memory Book by the End of Your Trip? Yes, Please!

On my first trip to Japan at 14, I got permission to take the family digital camera, and went truly overboard with photos. No-one could believe I returned home with … wait for it … 200 photos. Fastforward 20 years and we now take that many on our smartphones in less than an hour!

I got home from that trip, printed my favorites, and pulled out my scrapbook kit (glue, glitter, scissors – the whole thing!), to put together an amazing book of memories. And I’ve not completed a single scrapbook since.

Scrapbooking to preserve our travel memories is one of those things we’d all love to have time for, but unlike our 14 year old selves, as adults it’s a project we don’t have time to even begin. So our photos sit on harddrives, get buried in Facebook feeds, and we never have time to look at them again.

But what if you could finish a digital travel memory book BEFORE you even return from your trip? Something which was already designed for you, with very little time input, but produces an awesome product at the end? My friend Laura has you covered with her “On-the-Go Digital Travel Memory Book TOOLKIT”.

12 Reasons Travelers Will Love the PowerVision S1 – World’s Smallest Smartphone Gimbal

When it comes to travel essentials, there are none more important than your phone (your passport is strong competition though!). And when it comes to essentials for your phone, travelers need three main fundamentals; a sturdy phone case, headphones (because the whole plane doesn’t need to hear the soundtrack to Bridgerton), and a gimbal.

A gimbal is a handheld device that allows your camera to rotate smoothly along an axis, so you can take smooth travel video (without the camera shake). There are a million of them on the market, but only one which is truly worthwhile for travel.

The PowerVision S1 is a stylish and portable smartphone gimbal with easy magnetic mounting, AI tracking, gesture control for hands free recording, a built-in tripod, and a portable power bank with wireless phone charging, all packed into a compact device that fits in your pocket.

If you use your phone camera for travel photos and video, or take video calls when you’re abroad, the PowerVision S1 is a gamechanger. Here are 12 reasons you’ll love the world’s smallest smartphone gimbal.

Travel Photography Tips for Great Lighting

Photos may speak a thousand words, and tell rich stories, but an image contains so many technicalities the photographer composed to create the perfect setting. And one of those is lighting.

Lighting is different for travel photography than it is for other forms of the art. For instance, when shooting in a studio, you can control the light, but when out in the field, you have to plan according to sunlight.

It’s almost impossible for a traveler to move between destinations with bulky gear like large reflectors and flashes, and sometimes you’ll have a very limited window of time before the lighting disappears. So, with these challenges in mind, what are some basic tips for achieving great lighting?
