Capturing beautiful photos of your travels is a must these days. With smartphones and social media at our fingertips, it is easier now, more than ever, for anyone to be a travel photographer and share breathtaking shots with their audience.

Before any trip, scout out a few of the best photo opportunities for inspiration. A great way to do this is by searching hashtags and locations on Instagram. This helps get those creative juices flowing around lighting, framing, angles, subjects, and all that fancy photography stuff.
