A host of features set this guide apart from all others on the shelves. First and foremost, it is filled with practical advice and tips from the professionals who create the stunning photography found in "National Geographic Traveler", the number 1 travel magazine. Because travel presents new people, new situations, new environments, the skill set required for great travel photography is more specialised. Main themes of travel photography are covered, such as landscapes, portraits, architecture, action, and more. Based on our expert photographers' experiences in the field, the guide focuses on the challenging situations and special opportunities that occur while exploring new environments (wildlife in the distance, a tribal dance by a campfire, a monument in shadow) and covers how to engage your subjects and work - often quickly - to get the best shots.
Chapters of this title will cover inspiration; how to research a destination; how and where to purchase the right equipment; mastery of the core photography concepts; exercises to get to know your camera, with travel assignments near home; working with light; getting a sense of place to impart a narrative in your images; seeking out the authentic; how to capture a city; discovering the countryside; shooting adventure and nature; coping in the third world; capturing special shots, such as portraits, panoramas and potluck; saving and sharing photos; and, digital tips, checklist, camera bag essentials, and resources. Designed especially for active travelers, the book is sized for portability to fit easily in a backpack or jacket pocket.
