How to Get the Best Vacation Photos and Turn Them into Custom Painting

December, 2017

Get these tips from Drawberry on how to get the best vacation photos ever

What traveler in their right mind would go on a trip without a camera? If your photo against a gorgeous Bali sunset is not on Instagram, who would ever believe you’ve been there?! Of course, if you had a beautiful painted photo on the wall in your living room they would, but let’s talk about this a little bit later...
Most of us are so fond of taking photos of every beautiful or fun thing we see while traveling, that it becomes difficult for us to put away the camera and experience the new places. We end up with hundreds of photos, most of which usually aren’t that good. Next time you go on a trip, try to take fewer photos, but make the ones you take stand out in a Facebook or Instagram feed. Here are some tricks that will help you do that

1. Make your cityscape pics fun

The first thing you should do is clean your lens and put your creative cap on. A city skyline is more fun to look at when it’s reflected in your sunglasses, in the smooth surface of a pond or a sea bay, etc. You can also add a map or look for an especially striking viewpoint. Have some people in your cityscape photos: this will give a sense of scale and liven up your pics.

2. Include instant snaps

The photo-in-a-photo trick is an easy way to get your travel pictures to stand out. You can take day and night photos, or black-and-white and color photos of the same location and combine them this way. Or bring along a photo from your previous visit to the same area and include it in today’s pic.

3. Use reflection whenever you can

Do you see water that works as a mirror? Reflections aren’t just great for cityscapes. Natural landscapes or even some unusual cloud formations in the sky can look more stunning when reflected in a lake or another body of water. Look for such opportunities around you wherever you are.

4. Remember the golden hour

The golden hour is what they call the time about 1 hour after the sun rises and 1 hour before it goes down. You get great natural lighting that makes the subjects in your pics look brighter and more beautiful. Make those pictures horizontal: that way you will capture more of the surrounding scenery.

5. Silhouettes make great photo subjects

You can get a truly dramatic effect by capturing the silhouettes of people, trees, buildings and other beautiful things around you at dusk. The result may really surprise you.

6. Show off your things

Your personal items, clothes, sunglasses, snacks or your journal won’t ever complain about you taking too many pictures of them. Use them as your subjects for unique photos that can tell a lot about who you are or what you are up to without you actually being in the pic.

7. Get a painted photo

After returning home we want to save those fun vacation memories for as long as we can. We tell our friends about all the great places we had a chance to see, show our videos and of course share some incredible photos that we were able to take while traveling. But wouldn’t it be great to be reminded of the fun times every day without having to look in the photo gallery on your smartphone or laptop? That’s usually why we bring souvenirs from our trips and display them where we can easily see them, so we can get carried away into faraway lands time and again.

Even better than souvenirs could be a favorite vacation photo hand-painted on canvas and hung on a living room wall for you, and everyone around you, to enjoy. Drawberry can help implement this idea. You can upload your most favorite vacation shot and turn your photo into picture. Hand painted photos are a top trend nowadays. Just imagine how great your family painting or your personal portrait painting from your vacation would look in your living room. Your friends will be amazed when they come for a visit and see a real custom painting from photo. It is sure to be a great conversation starter when you host a party or simply have family or friends over. Drawberry makes the custom picture painting process really easy ➡ Order painting from photo

Drawberry can help turn your vacation photo into picture any time. Get truly amazing landscapes, oil portraits and more.

And remember that the best way to find awesome places for your photos is to explore the world around you. Go off the beaten track and you are sure to end up with tons of pics that will look different and will get hundreds of likes online.
