If you’ve finally decided to start your photography journey, traveling is the best way to practice your shooting skills. And seeing the world through your camera’s lens often results in hundreds (or even thousands) of photos.
Now, what do you plan to do with your photos after each trip? Are you just going to let them linger and rot in your camera’s memory cards forever? Of course, not! It’s time to have your travel photos printed and proudly share them with the world.
Here are some useful ways to showcase your best travel photographs:
1. Photo books
If you want to display and preserve your photos, create travel photo books with them. You can choose the photos you want to be included, compile them, and customize your photo books into themes. Let your photo books tell the story of your memorable trip.
2. Stringed photo collage
Feeling artsy? Make a DIY string photo collage! Make use of your old strings and design them in geometrical shapes or straight lines where you can hang your photographs with clothespins. You can group similarly themed photos together, or focus on just one theme to achieve unity in the collage design.
Not only is the photo collage a cute and creative way to display your travel mementos, but it’s also a great way to perk up your bare walls.
3. Photo coasters
Impress your guests by reproducing your travel photos and turning them into beautiful and functional drink coasters. These coasters can also make great gifts to family, friends, and your special someone.
4. Mini photo magnets
Transform your big and boring fridge into something worth a second glance by adorning it with some memorable DIY mini photo magnets. Not only will they add a personal touch to your fridge, but they can also be used as cute holders for quick, important notes.
5. Start your own travel blog
Inspire other budding photographers to step up their game and embark on a travel photography journey through a blog. Write inspiring stories that share your travel experiences, both good and bad, with your readers.
You can describe how your trip went and give tips that your readers might find useful. It can also be a way to make money out of your photographs, which can definitely help you finance your future adventures.
So what are you waiting for? Don’t let your travel snapshots just go to waste. Retrieve your old travel photos, pick out the best ones, and work your magic in presenting them creatively. It’ll definitely be fun and worth your time!
