Whether you’re shooting with a iPhone, a “digital point and shoot” camera or a DSLR, this seminar is for you. This will be a multi-part seminar.

We’ll share numerous tips and tricks that will make your travel photos more exciting. We’ll discuss image composition, lighting, photographing people and creating interesting landscapes. Finally, we will discuss traveling with your camera, keeping your equipment safe, taking photos under extreme weather conditions, and concluding with a discussion about international travel especially through Europe.
