Tourist spots tend to get crowded easily, making it hard to take decent photos. If you want great shots, be the early bird and get the chance to have the place to yourself before the crowd gets in.

If you're travelling alone, a good old tripod will save you. You can take numerous OOTDs and tourist-y shots with just a tripod and with a little bit of help from your camera's timer.

Don't rush. Trying to finish your shoot fast will cause high chances of bad shots. Be sure to allot time for photography in every destination in your itinerary.

Don't be afraid to take photos. If you see something interesting, just snap away. Play with your camera settings and try different angles. Also, take multiple shots of the same view for variety.
