Strangers were the ones who took my stunning photos on previous adventures. They came from different walks of life and were willing to help me. But how to get a stranger to take your stunning travel photo? It might be scary to ask a stranger to photograph you, but by being respectful and courteous, as well as utilizing the words please and thank you, you might get what you need. When asking be open and smile and have your camera ready. Describe what kind of photo your you like to have and give instructions. And above all, be polite, show you have manners and say please and thank you.
