It is important for the professional photographers or those who intend to become the photographers, to have complete kit with them while travelling. It is not appropriate to just think about the one-way distance but you should consider reaching at the destination location / place and then return back to your home as well. It may happen; you require or have opportunity for best photography while returning to your home.
Below are the five things a photographer must take care for:
1. Prepare for the Best Places and Spots:
The internet is going to help you out and it is the habit of best photographers to take necessary help in advance from friends, family or internet, about the place he is going to take photography. You must have addresses and distance accuracy of nearby hotels, so that you could stay and eat. It is also known as proactive measures and you can plan about financial needs as well and arrange money according to the need.
2. Pack up Dress Best Suitable to that Place:
Every place has its own importance and differentiations. If you are going to shoot in such area that is hilly, desert, oceanic, sandy, jungle, etc, you must prepare clothes accordingly and pack them by yourself. It is not good strategy to go back to hotel every time for change of clothes. It is wastage of time and resources as well.
3. Camera Lenses Already Fitted:
It is best option to have atleast two cameras with you with different lenses. The one may be with zoom lens. It will save your time to change the lens again and again. You are able to take precious photos within no time. So, never miss a single chance and have atleast two cameras with you all the time on journey. It is upto you regarding selection of the best lenses and the location. If it is vast area, you would be using zooming lenses and different for the jungles and mountains, etc.
4. Have Clear Objective:
The professional photographers make up their mind and objectives that they are going to achieve. The photography should not go unprepared. Internet should be consulted for the location site you are going at. The photographers should keep concentration on their subject and never divert attention towards irregular intakes. When you have clear subject, you will search the desired objectives and learn techniques accordingly. If your subject is lake, then you will search the places from where the lake is unique, it starts, its boundaries, its creatures, habitats of the living creatures inside and outside lake, mountains coming in the route of lake, how it helps surviving humans and other animals and similar objectives.
5. Heavy Backup:
It is suggested by not only the professionals but well known photographers from all around the globe. The best cameras capture even single photo with dense mega pixels and takes several MBs for a single best quality picture. The external hard drives should be taken with all other gadgets while on journey. You can replace the one full hard drive with the empty one, when it gets full.
