Images From My Travels In August On Instagram.

I love using Instagram, simply for the fact that I enjoy visual based media, and that followers can keep up in real time (give or take a few days) on what I am doing and seeing. Occasionally I write about things further into the past if I think they make a good story, such as my recent Cairo one , but most are much more recent, sometimes a few weeks out from when they actually happened.

Instagram gives you the chance to keep up and see what I am doing on my travels in the moment.

Here are some of the favourite Instagram photos from August, starting in the beautiful Isles of Scilly, then moving through Amsterdam, and ending up in Kyrgyzstan. All photos except for two were taken on a Samsung Galaxy SII smartphone camera.

Photography is something I have always loved and I try too improve all the time. If you enjoy photography and want to improve then I suggest to start trying in the beginning to learn how to compose a photo better.

When I say compose I mean that when you are taking a picture of someone, don’t cut their feet out if trying to get the whole body in. Try to take a photo with a straight horizon. Look at a scene and think in your head how you would like too portray it and go about taking your photo that way.

Editing software can help improve the photo afterwords, but it can’t improve the composition. Try too get that right in the first place.

I am not a photography expert but like I said I am always trying to improve and will give a few more photo tips in the future as I progress.
