If you are like me, you probably enjoy looking at travel pictures! Instagram is the perfect platform finding and enjoying beautiful photography. Last week, I was down in San Diego spending time with my family. My focus was on my family and so I spent quite a bit of time lounging around, chatting and just hanging out with my peeps. In my free time, instead of wandering the city, I spent a lot of time exploring my favorite travel photography Instagram feeds.
There’s nothing more spectacular than images taken with high-quality camera gear by professionals. Flipping through a photographer’s Instagram feed gives me so much inspiration for my own photos. I like to take a moment to really examine the photos that I enjoy the most to figure out why I like them. I ask myself “How does this image work?” When an image really thrills me, I analyze the subject, composition, framing, and exposure. When I find someone who uses their phone, I’m even more inspired!
Here are my current six favorite travel photographers on Instagram:
@EverythingEverywhere: What I love most about travel photographer Gary Arndt is the blend of landscapes and cityscapes, animals and icon buildings. He’s got an amazing eye and I find nearly every image inspiring.
@Migrationology: If stunning food from around the world makes your mouth water, then Migrationology will inspire you! Mark Wiens travels the world ordering interesting food and documenting the experience in his photographs.
@DanielKordan: If you’re interested in hyper-real landscapes, check out the enhanced photography of Daniel Kordan. He loves to play with color and lighting effects and his work is stunning.
@CulturalTourist: Photographer Michael Germano travels the world documenting his trips and capturing iconic images of people, places, and things. For a costume junky, I love his images of people wearing their daily clothes and finery as they move through their lives.
@GirlEatWorld: One of the best parts of traveling is tasting new foods, and travel photographer Mel has raised the food selfie to a high art! After checking out her Instagram feed be prepared to get a snack!
@ALadyInLondon: Do you love London? Check out the Instagram feed of A Lady In London for absolutely gorgeous images of historic buildings in the UK and beyond.
@TripHackr: One of the things I enjoy most about Clint Johnston’s Instagram feed are his drone shots. See the world from a high point of view through this beautifully curated feed.
