Last week, I asked you on my Instagram account what were the videos you wanted me to do And you have been very very very very many to ask me for advice to make more beautiful pictures while traveling

This is the subject of the day Hello Before I start, I prefer to tell you right away: I'm not photographer professional I have no ambition at all nor even the level But I learned the picture on the job so not in a school of photography or something

So I have a simple language which may be useful for all insiders who want to progress in photography but who do not necessarily know all the technical terms You really do not have to say that you absolutely must a superb camera at 3000 € to make beautiful pictures There's a trillion so it's 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 short, it's a lot of zeros, of photos that are taken around the world every year of which 85% on smartphone So all the advice I'm going to give you today it's going to be as much for the reflexes that hybrids, drones, smartphones and even tablets that are the way to take pictures, favorite of our parents and we always wonder why! Good enough spoken, now I will give you the first advice Take the pictures at the right time of the day And when I say beautiful moment of the day actually it's called the "Golden Hour"

or rather the "Golden Hour" because there are 2 The first is at sunrise so about 1 hour before and 1 hour after the sunrise And the 2nd is at sunset so the same is 1 hour before and 1 hour after And why is the "Golden Hour" to take pictures ? because the hues are necessarily golden much softer We call it the golden hour, so it's not for nothing for hues And this is the moment of the day when you will have the best colors to immortalize your shots So little personal advice, I love the sunrise not because I'm suicidal and I like to get up at 4am But in fact simply because you're in places where normally you have a lot more people

There for example in Trocadéro where I am currently It's one of the most visited places in the world and see there is no mass of tourists So you have really beautiful places which are usually only for you We continue immediately with the 2nd council To know : move a little

That's it, nothing to do with a little dance that I am currently doing which is very annoying In fact, what I find is that the most people who come to take photos places for example It is that they make a photo at a spot like here in Trocadero, the cliché there And they break, when in reality you really have lots of ways to immortalize different places So here I just came down a little bit the stairs of Troca ' and there is almost no one around me

And look, while it can be very cool, too, I'm sure We'll see that a little closer, but the simple act of walking around a little bit it allows to find different spots And so to immortalize things that few people would have! Okay now it's time to go to council 3 and for that I'm going back because he does pretty cold right now We are still better here So now I'm going to talk to you about a mega topic important in the photo, a primordial rule: it's the rule of thirds

suppose you can divide your photo in 3 using imaginary lines horizontal and vertical In fact we do not necessarily know but the human eye is moving in a natural way to the intersections of these lines So it's mega important to put your subject or something else that interests you in your photo at the intersections of these lines So I know that sounds a bit weird but I will show you very concrete examples to explain all that to you So the first composition I can show you who respects the rule of thirds, it's a picture I took in Moorea last year in French Polynesia

So as you can see, there is a boat I could have centered it but I preferred put it at the intersection, just imaginary lines What really allows to leave some space on the left of the photo And especially to imagine what's going to happen on this boat where will he go, what will he do? In short, it makes her much more breathe and so there are many more possible interpretations compared to the snapshot The second example is a picture of a kayak I took about 2 months ago in Germany

and in fact we are a little in the same spirit as the previous I really put it on the bottom left to let breathe to the right And what I like in that sense, it's actually Kayak going to the right And so towards the future While the picture before the boat is on the left, and so to the past

It's a different interpretation So I show you 2 more examples Whether it's vertical or horizontal pictures There for example a picture taken in winter with a car in motion Well in the rule of thirds too

Photo of me in Costa Rica In short, really try to respect this rule It is essential in photography Little trick to help you on the rule of thirds, most manufacturers have already integrated the imaginary lines on reflexs, hybrids or even drones And also smartphones

To activate them for example on Iphone you have to go to "Settings"> "Camera" and "Enable Grid" For Androïd we can of course do it too but it depends on the manufacturers and models of smartphone So I'll let you know depending on your model Now we go to the board "number four" "The horizon" So I know it sounds a bit silly but we tend to always want to center the horizon on pictures at the beach etc

While it is an error that is committed by a lot of beginners I did it a lot before In fact, for the photo to be nice, especially for the human eye, the horizon must be at the first or third tier of these famous imaginary lines this is not a tribute to François Hollande these are my lines So mega important

And please, align this horizon with me Make sure it is straight because it makes me feel pissed to see horizons like that in the photos It's not at all natural for the human eye, and besides it's not nice to see So please: align me this horizon What I like to do also in travel photography, it's having fun with the guidelines

So what is a guideline? This is an element that you will take in your decor in a landscape and that will allow to direct the eye towards a symbol, to a person, to an animal, in short, to something that interests you So I'm going to show you 2 3 examples so that you understand the value of these guidelines and therefore what they provoke in relation to the gaze so first example which is very speaking I think I already really like the atmosphere of this photo which was a little in the end mode of the world I was in Malta a few months ago, and the sun was completely blocked by the clouds He managed to come out at the last moment so there was an explosion of color, it's a bit late in the world suddenly this composition I really like

But what I find very cool is that at the beginning I started to take pictures, well a bit like everyone without moving too much It joins a little advice that I gave a little earlier I turned a little to the right And I discovered this rope that joined the boat and that is a very nice guideline for guiding just looking at the boat that was stranded and also the sky which is a little in "end of the world" mode

So this compo in terms of guidelines, I think she is really talking Another example, a little different this time With totally natural guidelines because in fact they are related to the fields of tulips which I discovered in Amsterdam a few months ago And in fact it gives an impression of infinity a little bit we have the impression that they do not end these fields of tulips That's everywhere

And that's thanks to the guidelines that point us towards the bottom of the photo and we really have an impression of "endless" A final example taken in the Berchtesgaden region (I made German LV2 tmtc) In Germany, in Bavaria where I went not long ago There I had fun with the pontoon So this is a guideline natural enough that will move towards me but also towards the end of the path and the mountains Which makes the compo is pretty nice from a visual point of view

We now come to Tip # 6 if I say no nonsense, to know where to place yourself or a friend, a subject on your photos It allows to tell a lot of things very cool especially a story For example this picture I took in Wales I am at the top of the mountain, I hiked 4/5 hours to arrive in Converses of course, it was really the galley But I arrived there so this photo she tells a beautiful story, someone who comes to the end of his efforts But if I get off right away, it's not the same thing

It's not the same story at all it's just a beautiful landscape but there is not something that can be told behind all that In any case we do not discover it in the same way Put someone on a photo is also useful to show the greatness of nature compared to the smallness of the man I hope that's the word In any case for example, I took this picture in Norway some time ago

Same in the same spirit, I am really very small compared to the greatness of nature And it shows a little bit of all that I advise you to put the subject that you take a picture of your back, it allows people who look at the picture to identify and put oneself in the place of the subject I do it often enough because I am not very handsome But that's not the debate I continue on another board

Play with colors, contrasts and lights It really helps to bring out an element something in particular I do not know if you've seen lately I used a red K-Way on my photos on Instagram Well that was especially for the purpose of bring me out in relation to specific places Especially when it is not nice it is very cool

It's really that kind of thing that will allow to direct the eye towards a particular subject A pretty cool photo to prove you the interest of work with contrasts of light for example it is this picture of Arnaud Montagard a friend of mine And we found this factory abandoned on the road we got inside, we were in "Golden Hour" mode so the light was beautiful and we have sought precisely to play between the contrast of light, the side dark inside the factory which is totally abandoned and the light that comes in from the outside, it gives a nice atmosphere And which has been transcribed in particular thanks to the dust So, little anecdote, that you can try to do at home: I almost fell before making the picture, and it made dust

And there we said bah in fact I'm going to put dust everywhere To add a nice atmosphere to the photo So I kicked in all directions And it makes an atmosphere, I think quite interesting from an atmosphere point of view, here we are, abandoned, old factory that I like a lot in this photo So I show you another 2 3 more photos for example, for you to understand well the interest again to work with contrasts

This is a stupid tip but can be very useful on a trip Tip number 8: Feel free to turn your camera for shooting in vertical mode Why ? Because it shows a little bit the grandeur of the place I think for example of this photo of Gozo I shot inevitably in vertical to show the height of the cliff

If I had shot in horizontal mode, it would have looked like that So clearly it's not the same story not at all the same thing I can tell And shooting in vertical can allow to show a lot more things in reality Especially in front of beautiful landscapes impressive Little trick in addition to those who are on Instagram

Shooting in vertical, It allows you to have a lot more visibility on the app because your photo is better put forward So do not hesitate I'm on the second last tip of this video which is: do not hesitate to give depth to your photos So we all know that a photo is necessarily a 2D element But we can very well give a little depth by adding 1st plan a 2nd or a 3rd plan

For example this picture that I show you which was taken in Ireland We see that there is a foreground with the yellow flowers, Behind, I am in the background with the famous red K-Way And after, still behind is a lake It really helps to add more depth in the photo that kind of things, having flowers etc And so more grandeur to the landscapes Last advice, the ultimate advice it concerns the photo editing So all you have done before, it's mega important but there is something not to neglect we tend to forget sometimes it's the editing! And editing it will allow you to give a special atmosphere to your photo, to bring out something in particular so it's really not to neglect And the advice I can give you about that, please do not over saturate precisely your colors It's a mistake that a lot of beginners will do

To seek to put bright colors in all the directions But in my opinion it gives a rather cheap side to the photos in reality So please, take the time to do them well without saturating too much BONUS advice just for you The council 11 I'll call it "Break the fucking rules bitches"! Ok the "bitches" is maybe too much and fucking too But the idea is: practice

Do not necessarily follow all the advice that I gave you there It's useless to always look for the photo like everyone wants to have it It's making mistakes, it's developing your own style that you will enjoy And that's probably the most important thing in photography I really hope that all these tips will be useful to do some of the most beautiful travel photos around the world In any case, that's what I use on a daily basis And besides now it's up to you to prove to me what you can do

Yes you behind your screen putting the hashtag #brunomaltor under your best Instagram photos coming soon I will soon make a selection of my favorites And I will make a video to show you all the ones I loved and why especially I leave you on beautiful pictures: peace!
