10 Blogging Props for Travel Bloggers

I've only learnt from the best through developing my blog photography and I know mine isn't quite there yet but I'm at a place where I can share a few tips here and there to help some of you out because sharing caring right?

I've seen so many posts regarding props you can use to create perfect and eye-catching photos, believe me I've read the majority of them as a guidance for myself, but I thought I'd change it up and dedicate this one just for travel bloggers. Obviously this has been done before (or at least I think it probably has), i wanted to include a few props that you wouldn't necessarily think of straight away when putting photos together.

10 BLOGGING PROPS FOR TRAVEL BLOGGERS 

ATLAS/MAP

It may sound obvious but it's surprising how many travel flatlays you see out there and very little which include an atlas or map. I guess the technological way is a lot more popular nowadays.

TECHNOLOGY

Literally anything in technology related to photography - a camera, GoPro, memory card, lenses, tripod, binoculars - whatever works for you.

 

TRAVEL MAGAZINES

They're everywhere - so easy to get your hands on. They may even include posters and brochures inside.

 

DIARY/JOURNAL

In every photo there is a way of fitting in a diary in the corner or to even act as the background. I have quite a few at the moment, one which I got on my travels in Vietnam (pictured above with the atlas),

COMPASS

Want to turn your photos vintage? Go classic with old compasses, the same idea with a map. Add something old school to spice up your photos.

 

GUIDE BOOKS

Another one which may be a little out of date but easily found in charity shops - travel guide books. Who doesn't love a lonely planet travel guide book?

 

TRAVEL SOUVENIRS

Perhaps you've bought a few gifts along your journey...why not include them?

 

POLAROIDS

I've only just ordered prints in a polaroid style and they are such good props to incorporate into photos.

For those of you interested, I boguth my polaroids with the LALALAB APP - such good quality and includes different sizes (I got the smallest size).

TICKETS

Plane tickets, tour tickets, event tickets - any type of ticket from your travels.

 

PASSPORT

I had to end it with an obvious one - all the different coloured stamps from various countries will look more appealing in a photo. Passports are pretty from the inside right? Maybe not from the outside though...

 

Have you found this useful? What props do you tend to use for travel photos?
