Anyone can point and click at a view, and if the scenery is wonderful, you get a good photo.

But what if you want great photos?

Fantastic travel photos that will make Instagrammers drool for the places you’ve been and the things you’ve seen?

Here’s how to take your travel photos from ordinary to extraordinary.

1. The Early Bird Catches the Best Images

The first trick for how to take better travel photos is to get up early, when streets are empty, dogs are busy chasing postmen and the air is still crisp and clean.

One hour before sunrise and one hour before sunset the light is simply magical - and at that time tourists tend to be in their hotel beds or heading for Happy Hour, so you can take a clean shot of whatever image you're trying to capture without someone getting in the way.

2. Be Sure to Ask for Permission

Be Sure to Ask for Permission

There's no need to be shy about taking photos of people you meet while traveling, but be sure to ask for permission;

their own image and their car's number plate, for example, are protected by copyright.

The worst the person with those perfect cheekbones can say is, "No." And it's simply rude not to ask.

3. Use a Proper Camera

Your mobile phone is a communication device, not a camera.

Yes, it takes pictures, but it wasn't designed to capture moving targets in all their glorious Technicolor.

Use your SLR camera instead, then upload your perfect travel pictures to Instagram.

4. Use Editing Apps to Enhance Your Travel Photo

It's easy to wreck a travel photo on Instagram with multiple filters.2

Instead, use photo-editing apps that will allow you to enhance the sharpness, contrast and brightness of your pictures.

Afterlight and Snapsee are easy to use.

Once you have found your very own editing style, stick to it.
