Nowadays, travelling and photos are deeply intertwined, we all want to capture those memorable moments. But getting a postcard-perfect photo without the crushing crowds cluttering up the view, all fighting for their very own photo with Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower, the Taj Mahal… We all know the great struggle of wanting to see those iconic sites, yet not wanting to share them with all the tourists!
There are definitely times where you would want people in your snapshots, whether they are the locals going about their daily chores or bustling along city sidewalks. Often enhancing the story you are trying to tell. But hordes of tourists bunched up with selfie sticks on the Great Wall of China is not one of those times!
If you are anything like me, a perfect photo is void of photobombing tourists. And so over the years I have mastered a few techniques that have helped me step up my travel photography game and capture beautiful – most often people free – photographs.
