There are many ways to document your memories with the place that you visit. It could be recording a video or writing a travel blog or taking photo of you with beautiful landscape behind.
But surely that’s not all there is to it. What if you want to document your travels with a little bit more flair than just posing with a famous landmark in the background? What if you want to include your significant other with you but you don’t want to do it the conventional way? Maybe you need a creative style of saving your travels and wonderful memories.
Let’s us introduce you 6 approaches to have a unique collection of places that you pass by.
6. Feet first
It all started at Brighton Beach in the United Kingdom in 2005. While sitting with his new girlfriend Verity, photographer Tom Robinson thought a quick photo of their feet pointing out to sea would look nice. Little did they know what was in store for them. Ever since then he has continued to document their travels and experiences in this way they began to call “Feet First”. Their print array “Feet First” is still going strong… with a integrate of additional legs as their family expands.
5. Follow me
Russian photographer Murad Osmann keeps on following his beautiful girlfriend Nataly Zakharova around the world and capturing precious moments in every step she takes. Osmann started the well-known “Follow me” series back in 2011 during a vacation to Barcelona.
The uniqueness of this way to document their travel is in the perspective the picture is taken. The “leading” face is majestically pacing forward away from the camera – showcasing his/her back to the viewer and guiding the other through many impressive landscapes and cityscapes.
4. Lens between us
Globe-trotting photographer couple Peter Sedlacik and Zuzu Galova have found a fun way to document their travels around the world. Wherever they are, they face each other, frame up a great composition, and take a picture of each other… taking a picture of each other. It’s called “Lens between us”
The resulting diptychs are creative, well-composed, and whimsical in the best way. A tribute to how their focus is always on each other, the images are part travel photography, part portraiture, and challenging to boot since each shot requires that they figure out not one, but two compositions.
3. Lego travellers
Craig McCartney and Lindsey Haggerty have been traveling all over the world long before their Lego personas. It all started when Craig found his old Lego collection at his mom’s place. He then got an idea to turn 2 Lego minifigs to represent himself and Lindsey. The minifigs’ first trip was when Craig presented them to Lindsey as her birthday gift when they were at Paris, France in 2013. The couple have hit the Internet by storm thanks to this unique idea.
BrinsonBanksing is actually named after a couple: Kendrick Brinson and David Walter Banks who are both photographers. They want to show their love to the world by documenting their own lives extensively, looking to one another as a muse with the girl’s legs kicked up as they embrace.
1. Finger travel
The photography style starts from Laura Turner (Cambridge, UK). Every day, she usually drew some faces on her finger to joke her boyfriend so she came up with an idea to draw smiley faces on their fingers and took pictures as they travelled. Her first picture was done in Paris.
