The Making of Perfect Travel Photos [with Examples]




Capturing the beauty of your travel is an essential part of immortalizing your memories and feeling on the road. In this new tutorial, we’ll give you some tips and tricks in making those travel shots perfect, turning them into the perfect additions to your photo album with the help of online photo editing.


So, you’re going on holiday and want to record the best parts of your journey – you better be paying attention to a few key tactics in capturing the essence of your trip. Check out a few key points below:

The essence of any photograph lies it in its structure and composition. Whether you’re seeking to capture something artistic, or just a regular family snap, paying attention to some key points is essential.


The geometric composition of your image will be the single most important visual factor in the feeling it creates. Artistic photographers seek to bend reality with fascinating and thought provoking work while others simply want to ensure ‘the whole family is in one shot’.

When traveling, you should keep this mind as you choose places to shoot and capture – architecture and city-scapes are often the best places to find that unique geometric shot!




In this interesting photo, the photographer uses a line in the middle to divide the picture into two parts.




Here are two other examples of interesting aesthetic compositions. The aerial photo depicts a skewed sense of balance while the image below uses contrasting colours and a contrast of natural and artificial forms to produce a unique effect.

This is not to say that the image is perfect, however. We will experiment with a few modifications to show you how various elements may be highlighted.





After cropping the image, we modified the colour slightly, drawing attention to the foreground.
