If you’re into making travel videos then using photography to improve them is a great technique
In the video above Thomas Alex Norman explains how learning to think like a photographer whilst shooting travel videos can help to focus your mind on the composition more.
In photography we are all trained to focus on composition, but when it comes to video you have so many more things to distract you from that.
Leaning how to tell a story in a single still image isn’t easy. If you master that with your photography then being able to portray a story using video, where you have the ability to fit a lot more ‘information’ into a clip, becomes much easier.
Follow Alex’s tips and you’ll be well on your way to making better travel videos in no time.
I’m a professional travel photographer, and I’ve been living the digital nomad lifestyle since 2016. I make money by working on client assignments, selling stock photography and helping other photographers by sharing my experiences on this website. I move around at my own pace (I hate fast-paced travel) and like to spend a few months getting to know each place I base myself in.
My writing and photos have been featured on industry leading websites such as Digital Photography School, Atlas Obscura and the world’s leading underwater photography resource The Underwater Photography Guide. I authored an eBook called “Breaking Into Travel Photography: The complete guide to carving out a career in travel photography” that has been published on Amazon. My stock images have also appeared in ads promoting destinations and companies that sometimes has been a surprise, even to me. But I guess that’s the nature of stock photography, you never know who will license them!
