When you are traveling, you must also want to make a blockbuster film on the Internet.
Now, I take Uluru as an example to share how I took pictures of my friends while traveling.
It’s okay if you don’t come to Uluru, becauseMany photography techniques are common, this article is very suitable for you to save.
Before we start, let me talk about a concept in this article:
The approximate position of the height of the camera (take the person's height as a reference):
High camera(Head up and down),Middle position(Waist up and down),
Low camera(Up and down the knees),Ultra-low camera(At the ankle).
This article will take the following 3 photo spots as examples:
Uluru(Ayers Rock)
Kata Tjuta National Park(Kata-Tjuta)
Uluru's starry sky

Uluru

Uluru (Ayers Rock), located in the center of the Australian mainland. It is the largest monolithic rock in the world, with a height of 335 meters, a length of 3 kilometers, and a circumference of about 9.4 kilometers. (Source: Baidu Encyclopedia)

Photo location(Red box position) :
▼Uluru Car Sunset Viewing Area
Photo time:Afternoon, sunset
Seat:Medium/high position
Props:Cars, hats, sunglasses, etc.
Photography skills:
▼Look into the distance (front and back)
▼Hand strokes hair, bowed head thoughtfully. Referred to as "headache"
▼Look at the big rocks (interact with scenic spots). Can be shot from different angles
▼Support the object with both hands (looking or not looking at the camera)
▼Sit cross-legged (looking or not looking at the camera)
Tips:
1. You can shoot at noon, but only for boys. The top light makes the edges and corners of the face more distinct, pay attention to brighten the dark parts in the later stage;
At sunset, the light is soft, suitable for both men and women;
2. When sitting, keep your back straight and your shoulders relaxed;
3. All postures, bend joints, avoid stiffness;
4. When looking into the distance, stare at an object, so that the eyes are more powerful;
5. Characterstry not toIt overlaps with key attractions, such as the following two are not good;
6. Pay attention to the camera position. For example, the picture below is suitable for "high camera position" rather than "medium camera position".
7. If you are traveling alone, you can mount the camera on a tripod, or place it on a tall object, and take time-lapse shooting.
8.Travel shots are mostly landscape portraits, where people blend in with the scenery.Pay more attention to the overall feeling of the picture and the artistic conception conveyed.
9. Because it is a landscape portrait, it is necessary to explain the travel environment, so there is no need to use too many large apertures to blur the background very much.
10. Mobile phone photography is enough, what you need more is the shooting ideas (then bookmark this article).

3. If the temperature exceeds 36℃, the walkway in the park will be closed;
4. Be sure to bring more water during the journey. There are drinking spots in the park, but they are far away;
5. There are so many flies in the Northern Territory, prepare a fly cap;
6. Pay attention to sun protection.
