Taking a photo is a great way to share your adventures with friends and family, but capturing images you'll be proud to share takes more than pointing and shooting. It's not all about the camera, either—many great travel albums have been shot on a smartphone. For better pictures (and the bragging rights that come with them on social media) no matter what type of camera you're using, keep these simple steps and principles in mind.
SAFETY FIRST: Getting the perfect selfie isn't worth your life. People die each year pursuing photos at cliff edges, busy streets, rooftops, and other unsafe locations; never put yourself in danger for a photo.
