Research equipment

While a good eye and some natural instinct will help you snap those breath-taking photos and video reels, equipment also plays a pretty part. If you’re not sure what exactly to look for: compact, multi-function, high shutter-speed etc. it’s a good idea to go camera window shopping. Amazon is the best place to look at new and used cameras for every budget, plus you’ll see reviews from people who have already tested them out!

Once again, a naturally good eye is huge but there’s always more to learn! If you are new to DSLR cameras, a course can help extract the best photos and videos from your device.

Travel Blogger, Nomadic Matt, rolled out a very detailed and effective photography course as part of his SuperStar Blogging Program. Capture the World: A Guide to Travel Photography goes through the “nuts and bolts” of cameras, rules of composition, long-exposure photography, promotion and more. The all-in-one course will get anyone with an interest in photography rearing to get out and start capturing moments.

Those travelers looking to concentrate on videography, look no further. Travel Blog Success offers a comprehensive story-telling course: Videography for Travel Bloggers. You’ll be guided through how to shoot, edit and publish videos for use on social media and your blog. Plus, the course’s private Facebook group offers the opportunity to connect and collaborate with other travel videographers!
