As I scrolled through the day's photographs, I knew that something was missing. 

I had just returned from a Meetup where I had a great time photographing Annapolis Harbor. We went there frequently because I really enjoyed shooting the quaint town.

But this time was different. I was underwhelmed with what I photographed that day. The pictures were okay, but I wasn't excited. I had been in a creative rut for a very long time. 

As I would learn a couple years later, it was because I was making one big mistake. Once I found that mistake and corrected it, my energy levels and creativity increased dramatically.

Scott Kelby shared a rare moment of honesty you don’t normally hear from professional photographers. 

“Do you know how you can take better pictures? Go somewhere interesting!” he joked during a presentation at PhotoPlus Expo. “Do you see this photo?” he said of a spectacular sunset image. “I just showed up and pressed the button.”

Of course Scott is simplifying his role quite a bit. He’s right that travel photography is a great way to create photographs, but it requires more than showing up and pushing a button. Follow these 5 Ps for great travel photographs and travel photography experiences.

If you are looking for a bit of overwhelm, try picking a Mirrorless camera from the booths at PhotoPlus Expo. Wander up to any camera manufacturer booth, and you are sure to see a long line of camera bodies and lenses in their Mirrorless options.

Many photographers are still trying to decide if you need a Mirrorless camera, and if so, which one is right for you.
