Tips For Taking Stunning Travel Photos With Your Smartphone

Tips For Taking Stunning Travel Photos With Your Smartphone

Here’s one piece of travel advice you don’t hear too often: leave your camera behind.

Instead, all you really need is your smartphone.

Packing an insane amount of technology, today’s smartphones have the camera power to capture photos with stunning quality using a variety of features. The biggest obstacle is learning how to effectively utilize those features.

We’re here to help you transition from taking a simple snapshot to capturing a “wow” photo. Thanks to an exclusive partnership, we can show you how to take landscape, food, and portrait-style photographs with a series of webinars presented by travel photographer Tim Grey.

Regarded as one of the top educators in digital photography and imaging, Tim will explain the wide array of photo capture features available on most iPhone and Android smartphones while providing tips on everything from setting up the perfect shot to getting the most from built-in editing tools.

Custom 2019 US Open Tennis Packages

National Tennis Center, New York August 26 – September 8, 2019

Each year in late August, the top players in tennis converge in the Big Apple for two thrilling weeks of grunts, groans, and glory. Spurred on by a crowd that’s one of the best (and loudest) in the sport, the US Open is one of those events that never seems to disappoint. We may not know how things will play out in 2019, but we do know that the tennis will be spectacular and so will the host. Is there any place more exciting, more electrifying, more alive than New York to catch one of the sport’s biggest tournaments? We think not.
