How To Photograph Your Vacation

“Look for ways to isolate people who are emblematic of the place you are in. You’ll capture more of the essence of where you are through that one image of that one person than you will with a hundred random shots of strangers intermixed with others.”

This will make you want to take a vacation and take up photography — or at least go on a vacation with the guy who wrote it.

Josh S. Rose explains how to photograph your vacation and shares tips on everything from how to take an establishing shot, to how to take family candids and how to get great shots by looking up (and down).

The post also features great images from Rose’s own vacations (one of which is featured at the top of this newsletter) and includes a vacation video he shot of his recent trip to Kauai that’s going to make you want to book a flight today.
