Adding Humor To Your Travel Photography

I have thousands of pictures of me standing in front of moments, landscapes, and buildings from my travels. Since I’m backpacking, I don’t have much of a selection of clothes. They look as if I’ve been standing in front of a blue screen changing the scenery on Photoshop. It get boring after awhile. What about the people you meet, the partying, and random encounters? These moments need to be captured.

When appropriate, I think it’s important to add some funny to your pictures. I like to express what I’m feeling and what I’m doing in my pictures. Entertain your family and friends at home that it’s more than just the scenery that you’re discovering.

Buenos Aires, Argentina for Bomba De Tiempo

Buenos Aires, Argentina for Bomba De Tiempo. There’s a vendor selling burrito’s outside the venue. He brings his hat every week and I know this because I was a frequent customer of his. I’m also drinking on the streets to prepare to drink more inside the venue.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This was at a Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia mall. I couldn’t figure out what they were trying to promote but there was a whole range of clothing and a photographer taking pictures of them. I asked if I could join which led me putting on the tightest shirt possible, scarf, and the beautiful wig. I look pretty good in that outfit. Think I could pull this off on a regular basis?

Iguazu, Argentina

Randomly stumbled upon this wonderful group in Iguazu, Argentina. Take a closer look at the picture. Females are males and males are females. Not a clue why.

    Love the one from Our Sea Museum 😀 Do they actually allow people to climb in, or you sneaked?

      Haha yeah. I think the age requirement for it was about 5 years old for that statue. I acted 5 and figured it would count.

    I’m a little sad you’re not in drag in the last picture.

    Michael, the best part of going somewhere new is all the hilarious unpredictable moments. it’s cool to capture as many as you can, and these photos are great. I’m not sure what that animal is on the sign either…

    Sure pictures of the landscape and local scenery are great, but to me , sometimes the best travel pictures are ones like these. 🙂

    […] I think it’s important to remember to take pictures of ourselves in the places that we go to. Make sure you have a little fun with it and take funny pictures too. […]
