Lesson 1: Photography, Videography, and Blogging
We are finished with the planning process. You are ready to embark on your great journey. You will meet new people, share new experiences, and accomplish your goals. But, how do you capture these fleeting moments in time? How do you share them with your friends and family? What are some ways you can go about keeping these experiences with you forever?
While you travel, be sure to keep thorough notes if you plan to share your experiences online or to others to help them plan their trip. Always carry around a small notepad that you can pull out at any time and jot down an address, pricing, an order of events, or anything interesting that you think would benefit somebody. Also, do not forget your camera when you travel. Document your travels as thoroughly as possible. Alternatively, you can just enjoy the moment and remember it as is. Either way, here are some ways we choose to document our travels. We encourage you to do the same.
A picture says a thousand words. Capturing those precious moments in a still image can tell a story in its own. Photography is personally my medium of choice. I enjoy the challenge of framing a shot carefully and immortalizing that moment forever. Getting started with the right equipment is important if you decide to get into photography. Fortunately, photography has come so far in the past decade. Technology has become increasingly available to anyone. It is a wonderful age we live in.

No, it is not a real word, but videography is the art of capturing moments in a video. Video is becoming increasingly relevant in the present day. Everyone is sharing videos on different platforms and monetizing their experiences. Much like photography, video cameras have become increasingly available and most photography cameras now have good quality video cameras built-in. Other cameras like action cameras, drones, and 360 degree cameras have really changed the way we imagine video. If you want to learn more about videography equipment and techniques, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter for more information.
The world of blogging has exploded in the past decade. It is never too late to begin your travel blog. There are a lot of steps to creating a blog and with the wrong information, you may get lost and become unmotivated to create. Do not let false information lead you astray when creating your blog. Your blog’s foundation must be strong from the beginning, so before you begin anything you should do your research. We can help you get started!
