Most traveling photographers – like this one – have the reflex of planning for the most iconic, most striking areas of a destination, occasionally missing out entirely the very best aspect of their adventure of the destination. The majority of the time, that adventure comes from these particulars.
Sights, smells, sounds, folks yelling, cars passing by, the colours of the skies in the morning. Just imagine how many great places have you seen along with the best you recall are those specifics.
Obviously, in a restricted 2D networking, as photos are, there is a large obstacle in being able to catch all of the sense-triggering details. And strong compositions can earn that jump, from a level color display, to a complete sensorial experience.
Thus, allow me to discuss my vision about the particulars of a travel destination.
I just studied a couple of facts and testimonials about turismo en queretaro about 48 hours before coming, which did not give me a very clear trip plan beforehand. Subsequently capturing “the character” became the straightforward and strong plan.
This statue, marginally bigger than a normal individual, captivated me. It had been in the center of a pedestrian manner, impossible to overlook. The personality, the decoration, the mindset. Everything cried “magnificence”.
Since I seen that blossom, elegantly flying from 1 tree to another in a little park, it had been impossible to not follow it. The deep black exceptionally contrasted the glowing yellow of these stripes. Along with the dimensions, it was large! This mixture became a strong invitation to catch it with the camera. So I followed it for a couple of minutes before it eventually stopped for a couple seconds at the suggestion of a branch. I breathed deep, directed, concentrated, and obtained a couple of shots like this one.
It grabbed my attention immediately as I was passing by this particular restaurant. It was a superbly crafted collage of bits of broken plates and decorations. An invitation to cease for a couple of minutes and attempt to find every small bit included. It turned into a perfect complete. And it was large. A wide shot wouldn’t portrait the details enough, so I eventually chose to harvest the entire facade for this specific plate, using a memorable, universal message: “Hello, my home is your home”.
The Queretaro aqueduct can barely be considered “a detail” of town, because it’s a massive structure which covers a huge part of historical downtown and reflects the graphic identity of Queretaro on each tourist booklet. However, after shooting some pictures from the space, combining the curves, lines, and surrouding buildings, the best angle became this: a close-up of two or one of those arches, thus producing a very simple, yet successful composition, which also explain the specifics of a iconic structure of the Fantastic mexican town.
This group, with just 5 pictures, intends to outline a Sunday trip for a tourist in Queretaro. At least, my very own outline. I still left a major set of additional Queretaro details, however I am confident that any guest may be associated with the pictures contained here, and hopefully will sense “the character” of the destination.
