Capture Your Style – How to take great travel photos


aimee song of style capture your style bookAfter spending so much time and effort writing and taking photos for Capture Your Style (let alone all the time dreaming it up), it is SO crazy to be able to see it all come together. I’m so so happy with the way it turned out and I thought that I would give you guys a sneak peek of what you’ll get if you buy it! In the book, I talk about a lot of things, from how to capture great photos and create an amazing feed, to how to gain more followers and turn your instagram into a business. It officially comes out on September 20, and you can pre-order it now, but here are some tips from the chapter on how to take the best photo while you’re traveling!

1. Forgo the square. I know that it’s tempting because the default instagram crop is a square, but you can get so much more in your frame if you take the photo in full format. You can always crop it later, or you can post the full size photo by tapping on the two little arrows in the bottom left corner of the photo in the Instagram app! This is one of my favorite updates that they’ve rolled out.

2. Lose the zoom. When you use iPhone’s zoom feature, the image quality gets really diminished. It’s much better to take the photo from as close as you can get, and then cropping later if you want it to be closer.

3. Follow the light. Lighting is everything when it comes to photos. When taking landscape photos, golden hour (the time just before sunset and right after sunrise) is my favorite time time to capture. It’s also great for selfies, but we talk about that in a different chapter! Of course, waking up for sunrise is dreadful, but once you get that beautiful shot, it’s all worth it. Planning is really vital too because you don’t want to be too late. I always look up exactly what time the sun will be rising or setting and make sure there won’t be too much cloud cover.

4. Play with Perspective. Scenery, whether it’s a beach, waterfall, or side street can be beautiful all by themselves. But if you really want to capture the scale of what you’re shooting, you should add yourself or your friend to the photo! A regular size or small person next to a big monument or an even bigger part of the landscape can be majestic. Also, remember to look up. Trees, buildings, and mountains have a much different point of view from the ground up.

5. People always ask me how I’m able to capture beautiful photos and I always say this: know what your destination looks like and plan your outfits accordingly. Whenever I’m traveling, I make sure to look at images of my destination before hand. Instagram’s discover page is one of my favorite search engines. I always plan my outfits ahead of time, not only so I know they will look good, but so that I can capture my location in the best way possible. Also, when I’m in such a beautiful place, I don’t want to spend all my time thinking about what I’m going to wear. Enjoying the moment is still the most important thing. For example, when I went to Cannes, I knew that it was going to be a very pretty, elegant location, so I packed lots of dresses that I knew would look great against the background. I even stumbled upon a gorgeous diving board into the ocean at Hotel du Cap Eden Roc and captured some really great photos in the dress I was wearing. You know I love my denim, but the photos would have looked really different if I was wearing jeans and a t-shirt.aimee song of style capture your style book sneak peekI hope you enjoyed that little preview!

    I loved that preview! I bought your book in a brazilian online bookstore (Saraiva) one month ago, but It has not arrived yet :/
    I can’t wait for read it too!

  10. Thank you for another fantastic article. The place else may just anyone get that kind of info
    in such a perfect method of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I am
    at the look for such information.

  11. I`ve been trying to pre order your book through Amazon but I guess I`m a no lucky girl..
    the shipping cost is too high. Amazon showed an option of free shipping if I spent more then $25 (easy!). So I choose 3 more books and went to check out again. When I was ready to give my last click, for my surprise the shipping went up instead of going down. They are charging now almost the price of two Aimee books :(((
    I love you and your work (I`ve been a true follower since the days that you were obsessed with over the knee socks and caramel frapp lol) but I guess I`ll have to wait to get my book.
