About the program:
Taking Great Travel Photos is a workshop which provides an overview of the essential aspects of digital photography. The first part of the seminar focuses on reviewing what is necessary to achieve the artistic vision and expression to turn ordinary snapshots into great photos. It reviews the variables that affect the photographic process, how to control them and will offer suggestions on cameras and other lightweight equipment suitable for travel.
Part 2 of the workshop will take the participant on a journey of how to select unusual images and avoid common stereotypes via real examples, covering landscapes, cityscapes, wildlife and floral with an emphasis on how to express a vision through tools such as composition, light, selective focus, depth-of-field, shutter speed, etc. The simple techniques presented will help you return from your travels with wonderful mementos worthy of sharing with fellow travelers, family and friends.
