The travel scenario has undergone a tremendous change in the recent years, more and more people are setting out to explore the world and experience different cultures. Digital nomads, travel bloggers, solo travelers, flash-packers, voluntourism are some of the buzzwords in the travel industry; People are quitting jobs, selling off their belongings and taking the roads less traveled. These travel trends have soared the rise in social media sharing and you wouldn’t be surprised to know that photographs form a large chunk of it.
In 1970, mankind as a whole took 10 billion photographs. Today that number is close to 400 billion. Taking pictures has become an essential part of traveling and why wouldn’t it be so? Photographs have always enhanced an experience for us; be it pictures of the food you devoured on the streets of Thailand to upload on Instagram later or be it a picture of the mighty Himalayas you clicked to share with your grandma who might never be able to go on that trip.
Good pictures will let us again live a moment otherwise gone. The elements of a good photograph are subjective, but it is a successful shot if it reminds you of something beautiful and brings back the moment something moved you. Beauty and art are everywhere, it’s just a matter of looking with a open heart. Capturing a photograph can be a soothing activity or a mindless clicking spree, but for some it could give them an Adrenalin rush.
