PICSPIRATION SUNDAY: You are on a romantic holiday – and your girlfriend/boyfriend just wants to relax with a drink. How to find time for photography? Answer: Order white wine!

All photo enthusiasts have been in the same situation.  You are traveling with a person you care about – and try your best to share attention between the other person and your passion for photography.

We know how it is… Not always our travel mate is as patient as we in waiting for the perfect picture, especially when he/she is expected to sit on a cold bench and wait while we get our equipment ready.

So here is a photography tips take makes it all so much easier for your partner: Try photographing your destination through a glass of white wine!

Can it be more perfect? You are enjoying a glass of wine with your partner! He/she is relaxed and happy to just watch your photography activities. And you can focus on making a creative photo – of course while throwing a “cheers” to your loved one every now and then 🙂

Joking aside, taking photos of a travel destination through the reflections in a delicious glass of cold drink is indeed one of the most pleasant types of photography.

White wine definitely works best – and you need to put yourself and your camera at a low angle. Beer can also create some interesting images, while red wine is not as suitable for this type of photography. And do not forget those colorful drinks!

The main photo of this article was taken on the Market Square in Krakow. I used a wide aperture to blur the background and keep the reflections in the glass in focus.
