Belfast Visitor’s Guide

Until I visited Belfast, I didn’t truly realize just how amazing the city really is.  It is a city that is steeped in history, and so much of that history can still be explored.  When I visited, I felt like I was taking a trip back in time thru some of Europe’s most historical moments.  This is one of the things that makes the city of Belfast so special.

The Art of Travel Photography – Tips for Taking Pictures in Low Light

We have all been in situations when traveling where we want to take a picture of something really beautiful or cool that we see, but the pictures just don’t seem to turn out because there isn’t enough light.  It can be a really frustrating feeling, I know.

Back when I first started getting into photography, I took a road trip to Banff National Park in Alberta.  Along the way, I stopped off at Glacier National Park for a day.  Glacier was a park that I had long wanted to visit because of its absolutely gorgeous vistas.

Unfortunately, it was very overcast with scattered ran on the day I was there.  Not only did this put a big damper on my hiking plans, but it made getting good pictures of the park incredibly difficult.  I was heartbroken to see the quality of my images when I got home and viewed them.  I am still bummed out about those pictures to this day.

In order to prevent something similar from happening to you, I am going to pass on to you a wealth of knowledge I have accumulated over the years on how to make the most of the limited light you might have when taking travel pictures.  So they next time you are in a dimly lit building or venturing out on an overcast day, you will be prepared.

10 Packing Tips That Every Traveler Should Follow

Nothing can ruin a trip quicker than making a major mistake with baggage.  Whether you forget something you need, don’t comply with airline baggage regulations, or run into a situation of lost or damaged luggage, these issues can put a major damper on any trip.  

I travel an average of 10 times a year, so I have quite a bit of experience packing a suitcase and carry-on bag.  Despite this experience, I still make the occasional mistake in packing every once in a while.  Reading about other people’s experiences over the years has helped me avoid some of the bigger mistakes, which I am thankful for.
