Travel photography tips: hone your skills at home

Any award-winning travel photographer will tell you the best way to improve your skills is to practice, practice, practice.

You might not be able to travel far right now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t perfect the art of photography at home. In fact, while we’re all unable to move far, there’s never been a better time to work on improving your creative skillset.

Here’s how you can work on your photography while maintaining social distancing:

•Look around your home for interesting items to photograph and place them in different parts of your house to practice with various lighting options
•Explore your own literal backyard, or a park, and find interesting patterns or colours in nature to capture
•Walk down the road to practice street photography (while maintaining at least a two-metre distance from anyone else, of course), capturing unique angles of buildings or houses
•Photograph your pets or birds in the trees
•Watch online tutorial videos for both photography and photo editing
•Enrol in an online photography class (support a New Zealand photographer)
•Re-edit old photos to try out different styles
