Sure, landscape and architecture shots are great, but it’s pictures of people that will make your travel photography unique (and share-worthy) and help you build and capture lasting memories. “Explore what your camera means to you as you interact with cultures around the world,” he said. Here are his top three tips for getting great shots of local people as you travel around the world.
