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

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.
