Speaking of Mexico, I Found These Ten Tips For Travel Photography

Here are the quick bullet points from a really good piece by Andrew Gibson over at JPG Magazine.
  1. Go somewhere amazing - like Mexico.

  2. Go somewhere ordinary - like your home town, maybe.

  3. Shoot the people, especially if you're somewhere exotic.

  4. Don't shoot the people, especially if you or they are uncomfortable.

  5. Take photos of the kids - most of them will "ham it up" for you.

  6. Research, research, research - hit the Internet before you go and see what's cool to see after you get there.

  7. Search for magical light and I don't mean between 10a.m. - 5 p.m. It really gets pretty before 8a.m. and after 6 p.m.

  8. Be alert for opportunity - maybe you can buddy up with a fellow traveler.

  9. Look for inspiration sunsets, sunrises, close ups, colors, shapes, etc.

  10. Never be satisfied - you always want to do do better.

Here is the complete article right here. It's a nice read.
