Traveling solo is fun and liberating! Getting great photos, however, can be quite frustrating.
Here are some of my tips on taking epic photos on your Solo travel adventures.
1. Simply setting up the countdown timer feature on your mobile phone camera.
At this point, anything the phone can lean on is fair game. A beer bottle, leaning against a chair, a rock, etc..
This allows you to do all your awkward poses undisturbed!
2. Get a portable tripod device. Most of these devices can fit into your travel pouch making it easy to carry.
They mostly use Bluetooth remote control which makes it all easier. You could still use a countdown timer whiles using the tripod.
I got mine (attached below) from Kikuu Online
It is flexible, potable and can adapt to all surfaces.
3. Anyone within my reach becomes a photographer ha! 🤷🏾♀️
Be it the sexy bartender, other travelers, the tour guides, etc.
Anyone willing to take a picture, mostly in exchange for you taking theirs is fair game.
Always ask. People are willing.
Finally, it’s Ok to take just selfies, focus on the experience, and capturing your surroundings.
Personally, I love taking destination photos without being in them. Those can fetch you decent money on stock photos!
