This week on Prodibi, we decided to give you an escape and travel taste.
Discover how to make Travel Photography like our young photographer of the week Giovanni Moioli.
About the artist
Giovanni Moioli is a 22 years old photographer that comes from Monza, Italy.
Since a very young age, Giovanni Moioli has always been interested in photography. But it is during his years at an art high school that he started to study composition, bought his first reflex camera, and got more involved in the photography world.
Giovanni is currently finishing his studies in Architecture at Politecnico di Milano and takes profit of every free moment to search new places to take photos and work his compositions.
Another passion of Giovanni is probably Traveling the world. He visited Iceland, Germany, Morocco, Prague, and other cities, and he is always looking for new places to visit, explore, often backpacking with friends.
He mainly shoots travel and landscape photos. What he most loves is making travel people through his photographies... when they can identify themselves in the pictures, like if they were living the moment or admiring the places he was seeing.
Travel Photography: Some Tips
Travel photography is like a time machine, freezing memories from a journey that you can look back on and enjoy for years. Discover some tips we recommend to be like Giovanni Moioli, a Travel Photography whiz!
- Pre-Trip Location Scouting
Read travel guidebooks about your destination. Look on the Internet for articles and blog posts to help give you ideas for photos. Reach out to other photographers. Become more knowledgeable about which images will capture the essence of a place. Instagram or Pinterest are good tools!
- Wake Up Early, Stay Out Late
Because light is sometimes better but all the more because it also means you’ll have to deal with fewer tourists and other photographers.
- Brought a Tripod with you
Use lightweight travel tripods. A tripod allows you to set your camera position and keep it there. With the camera fixed, you can then take your time arranging the perfect composition.
- Be Patient and Experiment with Composition
Once you made your first shoot perfectly, now it is time to compose. Try different angles and different distances too. Start with a wide shot, then a mid-range version, and finally, get up-close and personal. Never be satisfied with your first idea for an image!
Be patient and aware of the details like clouds, they are aesthetic...If you don’t have the patience to try, you might miss a fantastic photo opportunity!
