Some travel photography and a photo contest were on the schedule for today’s vlog.

I’m on this post tour after my conference in the Tirol region of Austria. And, I’m trying to make the most out of things as a travel photographer even though the trip is definitely set up more for bloggers. It can always be a mission as a photographer getting shots on blog or press trips, but I rolled out of bed at about 6am to get a couple shots.
Travel photography is really all about getting out in the right light for the situation, and in this part of Austria it seems that sunrise is the best time of day to get cool shots. I didn’t wander too far from my hotel this morning. I literally used the hotel as the foreground for my imagery. It totally worked with the beautiful alpenglow that hit the mountains in the morning.
After my sunrise photography, the other bloggers and I headed out to explore a bit. We started with the Swarovski kristallwelten which is a cool museum and art gallery just outside the town of Hall. I had fun there, and even managed to get a couple cool photos even though it was the middle of the day.
Later in the day, we wandered through the town of Hall, Austria which was very cool, actually. I was a fan, and would love to come back at some point and shoot some travel photography there. Being the middle of the day, it didn’t really work.
Tomorrow on the vlog, I’ve got a bit more travel photography in the works here in Austria, and a hike as well.
