When I was young, I dreamed about going around the world. I never thought my dream would come true. Over my adult life, I have had the opportunity to accomplish my wish. I never dream that I would have done that and needless to say develop friends from all over.
The best way to document your travel is photography. Your pictures mean so much. Because like me, you never know if you will ever see again.
Not so long ago, I had the opportunity to go to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Yes, we all go after the must-see shot, but I have learned now to look at the shot other people would walk by. You see, photography is about telling a story. Maybe it’s about your story or maybe its about the place you are visiting.
Myrtle Beach is such a beautiful city. Coming from the North, you notice two things. One the temperature is warmer and the second is this thing call Southern Hospitality. The locals are so polite and so helpful. You want to know something, sit down with a local, and you will soon know where the right spots are at. In the summertime, I think everyone knows about this hot spot. In the fall, it is almost like a ghost town. The food is great, and the sights are so lovely to see. I do like the Park just South of the airport. Myrtle Beach State Park. Speaking of airports, the airport is so sweet and easy to get around. Yes, southern hospitality is here.
I love traveling and have been truly blessed to see things, other cultures and met so many people threw out the world. If I had one comment to make, it would be No matter where you are at; it may be the last time you will ever see it again. Document it that way.
For travel photography, I am a Canon shooter. My go-to Len’s that I use about 90% of the time is my 24-105. Most of the time I am in AV mode or Aperture Priority mode, Usually set at 5.6 and ISO of 200. These are my go-to setting that I like to start with. Until my next travel go out and have some fun documenting your trip.
