How to take travel photos to paint for later
I used to carry a variety of camera, storage drives, memory cards, and back in the day, rolls of film. Now, it’s so much simpler to just take photos for painting with my small iPhone. When I travel, I can take upwards of 200 to 500+ photos a day, and often just a percentage of those will work for a painting. So when your are excited about a scene, take multiple shots of it from different angles. It’s also a good idea to take photos of nearby subjects. I have never felt that I have taken too many photos!
When taking photos up close, pull back too so that you get more of the scene.
I like to include flowers or something interesting in my foregrounds. Remember you can always edit out the things you don’t want.
