Researching before going on vacation

posted on 21st of july, 2010

I currently reside in Japan and I am getting ready to go on vacation for 3 weeks to California and Texas. I plan to take thousands of pictures on my trip but before I leave I am doing some research. First, I am looking at what kind of photos are already on DT for the cities I will be visiting. I do not want to take a picture that is already in the database. Second, I am researching where I will be going in each city and looking for under represented subjects. Third, I am researching what sells from the cities I will be visiting. It pays to give the customers what they want.

By doing the research before I leave I hope to be able to take enough pictures to take my portfolio to my next goal which is 100 uploads.

Before any trip is very recommended to research on what to do? what and where to eat?, what to see? and obviously what to photograph?... You are doing great... Have fun and enjoy your trip.
