Insight Guides Travel Photography Summary

Insight Guides Travel Photography by Insight Guides

To mark the 40th anniversary of Insight Guides, the leading publisher of visual travel guides, we are publishing our very own Insight Guide to Travel Photography. This practical and informative guide will appeal to keen amateurs as well as complete beginners and covers everything from the history of travel photography to digital processing and the sharing and selling of your own images. The guide features expert advice on how to capture stunning photographs whatever the time of day or year, helped by our destination calendar which conveniently highlights when places are at their most photogenic. Illustrated sections explore all aspects of technique from lighting and composition to camera settings, exposure and lenses. 'The Journey' section explores every kind of travel photography, including Setting Out, Landscapes, Elements and Skyscapes, The Built Environment, People, Wildlife, Details and Close-ups, Transport and Active Pursuits. A section offering tips on how to establish a rapport with people and photograph them successfully and respectfully in their environment in order to gain a greater insight into their world is entirely unique to this guide. Authoritative feature essays focus on areas such as 'Capturing the Soul', 'The Family of Man' and 'Flash Photography'. The handy 'At Home' section provides invaluable advice for preparing for your trip, including what to take and planning the journey, local customs, insurance and protecting your camera. There is also plenty of tips for processing, including how to download safely and getting the most from your images. A full and extensive glossary also details technical jargon, for anything you may need to know. This inspirational and practical guide is of a portable size making it a useful on-the-spot handbook, yet comprehensive enough to be a wonderful reference guide at home.

Insight Guides Travel Photography Reviews

The very best book on travel photography, ever! And I have read quite a few. The content is very wide-reaching and has a lot of good material on composition as well as technical and practical advice without sounding technical. This certainly has a lot to do with the style of writing - credit to the contributors and the editor! The book gave me many good ideas and inspiration.A" Petter Brevik, Norway.
