Travel Photography: Creating Your Own Luck

Now we have got the Christmas and New Year holidays out of the way, it is time to look forward to our holidays and our Travel Photography opportunities. This article is by Mark Eden, writing for our our friends at Picture Correct. Mark is a freelance photographer and the founder and director of Expanse Photography. A photographic services company offering fine art images as well as stock and assignment photography and a range of publishing and printing services.

So you’ve read up on the technical side of taking great photos. You know your aperture from your EXIF, and you’ve experimented with shutter speeds. But there is something missing from the photos you’ve been taking. They’re OK, but that’s it. Just OK. Why? Well, here’s a little secret: it’s all about luck. Well, not really. More to the point, great travel photography is about creating your own luck.

Mark ends his article by saying "more often than not it’s about being in the right place at the right time and having the awareness to take complete advantage of it.". My most published image, that of the "Three Headed Giraffe", was precisely that. I turned round and saw the scene and knew there was a special photo there.
