Tips to take great travel photos
No need to keep it all to yourself. With digital cameras, or photos on CD services, sharing photos is easy to do on the web for all to see. Most of the online photo sharing services let you easily upload digital photos, caption them up, and even order prints from the website. Be judicious with your selection for the photos you chose to share – no one wants, or will look through, all the photos you took. Keep it to a minimum of a couple really great shots that tell a story over a span of photos – the best of the best.
