Travel Photography Tips for Your Visit to Spain

Spain is a wonderful place for a vacation, whether you are alone or with family. If you happen to be a photographer, your trip will be far more exciting because of all the beauty the country has to offer. However, if you are planning to take a photography trip to Spain, there are some quick tips that you should keep in mind.

  1. Don’t Carry Too Much

It’s important to carry only the gear you really need when talking about travel photography. You may not need to carry a heavy DSLR with you, because a much lighter and smaller mirrorless or compact camera might be all you need. If you do have to take a DSLR, it’s better to keep one versatile lens with you rather than multiple ones for each different kind of photo.

  1. Choose the Correct Mode

I personally find that having the camera set to Manual can sometimes cause problems in a street shooting situation. You don’t always have time to dial in all the settings for a shot that you might lose in a few seconds. Keeping your camera is Shutter Priority or Aperture Priority, depending on the kind of photos you want, might be a better idea.

  1. Do Some Research

Street photography is all well and good, but if you don’t have many days to spend in Spain and want to capture as much of it as possible, it’s good to get some research done beforehand about all the best places to take photos at. A little time spent researching about a new place goes a long way.
