Tomorrow I leave for a quick 3-day trip to Colorado, and I have several other trips planned over the next few months. Travel has been a big part of my life for quite a while now (you can see some of my travel posts here), and like many of us, one of my favorite parts of visiting new places is being able to snap photos along the way. I'm not a professional photographer by any means, but I've learned a lot of tips over the years that have helped improve my travel photography, and today I'm going to share some of them with you!
trip to Michigan, I'd say that about 75% of the photos that we took were of an absolutely breathtaking sunset over the lake. But it was this shot above, which focused on the tall sawgrass and pushed the sunset to the background, that ended up being my favorite.
Thankfully, Photoshop Elements has a very quick fix to sharpen your images in just a few steps, without the jagged edges that often appear when just clicking 'sharpen' in an editor. Here are the instructions. (For larger views of screenshots, click on images.)
I hope these tips (and the quick tutorial) prove helpful in your future journeys. And if you have any travel photography tips of your own, I'd love to hear about them in the comments!
