Don’t file your photos…build a Travel Photography Exhibition

Over the years, we’ve all taken thousands of photographs on our vacations. Most of the time, however, these images never see the light of day and neatly tucked away in photo albums or stored on our hard drives.

A piece on Aol. challenges  travelers to build their own Travel Photography Exhibition. Here are a few tips:

  •  Take lots of photos. You don’t have to be a pro – the “law of large numbers” means the more photos you take the more likely some of them with very unique and of professional quality.
  • Be consistent. Decide on a topic or theme and make sure to both photograph and select images within that topic or theme. The more consistent, the more professional.
  • Pick the best venue. Pick a location for the exhibit that captures both the feel of your theme and the right size to display an appropriate number of photos.
  • Advertise. Advertise. Advertise. Make a fun poster. Email your friends. Make a press release. This is your work – show it off!

Next thing you know, you could be a professional photographer!
