Why master travel photography?
As digital photography has become more accessible, it’s only natural to want to capture more of your travels. Portraits, landscapes, street, or food photography — and more — are all part of what is considered travel photography. And each of these situations involves a wide variety of lighting and shooting conditions. That’s a lot to consider! Learning to use the camera or phone that you have and — more importantly — getting creative about how you observe the world is key to being able to capture quality images; images that stand out and express stories and beautiful memories that are meaningful to you.
Spend time before your next trip getting comfortable with your camera and thinking about new ways of composing your images. When you’ve mastered using your camera, you’ll experience more, do more, and fully appreciate the travel moments, discoveries, and connections you make along the way.
What you’ll learn.
With this course, you’ll be creating stunning images of your travels — from landscapes and portraits to architecture and documentary. The curriculum is part technical and part creative. You’ll come away understanding how your camera works and how to build on that knowledge to take better photographs. Then, you’ll learn how to assess the conditions and light available to you on your travels and think creatively about composition and cultural considerations.
You’ll also learn some editing tips, so you can put the finishing touches on your photographs like a pro. In the end, you’ll be ready to create amazing photographs in all the variety of scenarios and express your experiences through photography in the best possible way. You’ll also learn about storing and backing up your images, and how to streamline your workflow so that your files are always protected, no matter where in the world you are.
Camera modes and exposure.
We’ll cover the technical ins and outs of your camera or phone. You can shoot in any mode you are comfortable with, but knowing why and how to change settings when you need to will help you create better images.
Your creative journey.
With the course companion journal, you’ll be able to capture your personal “aha!” moments and look back at your progress and growth.
The art of photography.
Mastering technical and creative skills will help you find your own voice. You’ll design a project with a range of subjects. Images that stand out and express your experiences start with understanding visual vocabulary and composition.
In our travels, it’s important to consider how we can be respectful and ethical when capturing people and places. We’ll share tips throughout for how best to take these important points into consideration while still capturing experiences and showing creativity.
Backups, storage, and editing.
Mastering your camera isn’t all you need to know! We’ll provide a simple workflow to store and backup your photos so that none are lost, plus a flexible approach to editing to put on the finishing touches and infuse your photos with the emotions that you want.
Sharing and feedback. Sharing your images with others is an important step to learn how your images are perceived and if they resonate. This is invaluable feedback for you as you continue to improve your skills and grow to produce more sophisticated and evocative images.
