Confessions, musings and tips from a snap-happy wanderer.

Ngorongoro 2

Rush hour (Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania)



Use crowds for perspective


It’s nice to get a clear shot of some famous landmark without having people all over it, but sometimes crowds of tourists provide a better photo. Don’t always attempt to photograph around the crowds or go into hysterics attempting to cut them out, instead, see if incorporating them into the image actually makes it a better shot.  A snap of the Mona Lisa is never as impressive as the postcard reproductions they sell in the gift shop…but  a photograph of 300 people photographing the Mona Lisa is!
