"TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY: The Importance of Preparation"
Presented by: Guy Larin
Monday, May 6, 2019
Travel photography is a balancing act between having the right equipment on hand and not being weighed down by unnecessary paraphernalia that can—and will—be a burden when abroad. The type of travel—walking in cities, driving through countryside, tropical vacations, seeking out foreign landscapes and landmarks, safaris, etc.—will all have a bearing on what you should or should not bring with you and how it will be organized and carried.
Research on local landmarks, people, light, weather (rainy or dry season) will also dictate what equipment and clothing to bring along while keeping things as light as possible. This will ultimately be reflected in the quality of the experience you will have and the
images you return home with.
This presentation will provide a method of developing your own checklist of items to bring along to meet the
specific requirements of any given trip or holiday. It will also cover ways of establishing, beforehand, some of the not-to-be-missed sights. Finally, it will deal with how to stay on top of your growing collection of photographs from your trip so that you don’t get home to an almost insurmountable task of selecting and processing hundreds of raw images.
