Embarking on a journey with Arrow Stage Lines isn’t just about reaching your destination. It’s an opportunity to capture some of the most breathtaking views right from your bus window. Travel photography can be remarkably rewarding, especially when you’re cruising through scenic routes. In this post, we’ll share some expert tips on how to capture the perfect shot from the comfort of your charter motorcoach.
Finding the Right Seat for the Best View:
Choosing the right seat is crucial. If possible, sit on the side of the bus that faces the sun to avoid glare. The middle of the bus can offer a wider viewing angle.
While professional cameras are great, smartphones today are equipped with excellent cameras. A polarizing filter can also help reduce glare and reflections.
Mastering the Settings:
Use a fast shutter speed to counteract the bus’s movement. On a smartphone, use the burst mode to take multiple shots quickly.
Dealing with Reflections and Glare:
A simple hack is to use a dark cloth or jacket to create a makeshift hood around the window and lens. This can help reduce reflections.
The Magic of Lighting:
Early morning and late afternoon light can add a magical quality to your photos. Utilize these ‘golden hours’ for the best natural lighting.
Capturing the Essence of the Journey:
It’s not just about landscapes. Capture candid moments inside the bus, like a family laughing together or someone lost in a book.
Sometimes, the perfect shot needs a little tweaking. Use photo editing apps to adjust exposure, contrast, and saturation to bring your images to life.
Respecting Privacy and Safety:
Always respect the privacy of fellow passengers. Also, ensure you are seated safely and not obstructing any pathways.
