1. Wait for the right light
When you can, shoot in the ‘golden hours’ – the first hour after sunrise, and the last hour before sunset. In the early morning and evening, the light is soft and warm, and every destination is more photogenic. On the other hand, if you shoot in the middle of the day, the harsh lighting may leave you with bright highlights and dark shadows.
Travelling can be tiring and unpredictable – but if you can adjust your schedule around the golden hours or set your alarm a little bit earlier, you’ll be rewarded with stunning photos. If you’re unfamiliar with the area, download the Suncalc app to find out which direction the sun rises and sets.
