10 Travel Photography Tips for great holiday photos

This article was written by (former editor of Digital Photographer magazine) and appears on Digital Photography School.

There’s no time like the present to hone your photographic skills to enable you to capture glorious travel photography fit for a gallery wall – or at least pride-of-place in your living room!
