Social Sarah: 5 Tips To Take Great Travel Photos

I recently returned from spending 10 days in London and Paris where I spent my days eating crepes and visiting places like Tower of London, Windsor Castle, the Eiffel Tower, and the Sacre-Coeur in the beautiful Montmarte district of Paris.

While I wanted to document my trip, I didn’t want to lug around a DSLR camera as I walked the streets of London or the cobblestones of Paris. I asked our Art Director, Jeff Thurston, for tips on how to take great photos with my smartphone. Watch this month’s episode of Social Sarah to get five great tips on taking great travel photos – tips that can be applied to smartphones OR DSLR cameras!
