Part II: Techniques Unlimited > Travel Photography

Chapter 9. Travel Photography

Travel photography is a great way to practice your digital photography skills. Vacations are a good time to investigate this type of photography. You’re relaxed. You’re out to have fun. You definitely have your digital camera along with you to document the sights and sites that you’ve paid thousands of dollars to visit. When you get home, all you’ll have will be the souvenirs you picked up, your memories, and the photographs that help you preserve those memories.

I’ve already noted that travel photography is an interesting blend of landscape and architectural photography, with some portraiture mixed in if you choose to picture people along with places. These opportunities can alternate in different ways, too. Even if you’re on a whirlwind 14-city tour of Europe, you’ll find that between each of those cities are scenes created by Mother Nature that deserve your artistic attention. If you can, take the time to stop and photograph them. Then, when you reach the next city, be prepared to photograph the monuments, towers, cathedrals, and other interesting aspects of urban life. This chapter provides a broad overview of some of the things to keep in mind as you venture forth on your traveling photo expedition. This is a short chapter, because most of what you need to know was covered in Chapters 7 and 8.
