Travel Photography, Traveling Lightly
When you travel do you want to make photos that you can print large and make digital presentations for your family and friends.  You might even like to sell your photos to travel magazines or place them with a stock agency or a portal on the web.
Digital equipment has made publishing your photos in magazines much simpler than it ever was.   

Even if you photograph only for pleasure, you can use some of the techniques described in the book to generate travel content good enough for magazines and newspapers.

There are many tips listed in the  book  
"How To Sell Your Digital Travel Photos"  
Below are listed  a few of the techniques covered

  • . Whether digital or film based, you need low ISO, good saturation, and sharpness. Film speed and digital ISO settings are best kept no higher than 100 except in cases of unusual content.


  •   Tripods are forbidden in many places . Its extra weight makes it hardly worth lugging.  You will need to steady the camera for landscapes and low light scenes, however.   If you develop ways of getting sharpness without a tripod, you will find that the tripod could be just more baggage to lug.  Tips to sharp photos without the tripod are listed in the book.

  •    Balance your exposures and end the toil of trying to rehab a unevenly exposed frame in imaging software.
The average scene contains three or more stops of light on a sunny day, usually four,  so you must balance your exposure.  You can do that with a two-stop graduated neutral density filter.  see detailed explanation in the book.



  •  Match Your Shutter Speed to Your Lens.  When hand holding your camera, unless you have an image stabilization lens or camera body, match the shutter speed to the focal length of the lens.
Example: a 60mm lens requires a shutter speed of 1/60 of a second or higher to avoid camera shake.  Match your 210mm zoom with at least a 1/210-shutter speed. (non IS lenses)


  • Lens Hood.  Shade the front lens element to prevent lens flare; retain crucial color, saturation, and contrast that you would loose if the slightest bit of direct or reflected unintended light enters the lens.  
Tripods are not allowed in most ruin sites; the bean bag can help to steady the camera

Great Tips illustrated with Great Pics,   ( Amazon Review)

I found this book to be engaging and full of great tips and instructions. The black and white travel photos inside are a joy to look at. I would like to see another book of his with just the photos, printed larger and on glossy stock.

The book is divided into two sections: How to take good travel pictures, and then, How to sell them. ....

This is the sort of handbook that you will want to buy, read and then save to refer back to again and again.

Drawing from his own experience as a travel writer and photographer, the author has created a real resource for anyone who wants to have their images published.
