Travel tips from a non-travel photographer

Waterville, Washington. 1/160th f16 ISO200

First off, I'm not a travel photographer. I don't have the resources to travel to exotic places for extended periods of time just to make photos.

Second off, when I do wind up visiting some place new, it's typically for a visit with family or a non-photography, work-related event. Either way, time is often limited when I travel.

That was the case last week when my wife and I flew 2,699 miles across the U.S. to Washington to visit with family. Between visiting with folks in Seattle for under twelve hours and then trekking over the Cascades to Cashmere to see more family for a few days before circling back to Seattle for the flight back east, there was very little free time for hunting out good shots.

But this didn't stop me from making some photographs I'm pleased with, and I think it's because I approach my travel photography with very few expectations and follow the same game plan where ever I go. So, from this non-travel photographer, here are my tips for coming away with memorable images from any trip.
