Travel Photography  

Taking photographs while traveling requires you to think about several aspects of life that you don’t have to pay attention to when you’re photographing around your home town. You need to know what to pack, how to pack it, how to think about security, how to back up your photographs, local culture (ethics, legalities, customs, taboos), what to do when you need help, travel insurance (remember, there’s no Medicare outside the U.S.), using guides (fixers), how to choose themes/projects, relations with a non-photographing significant other, and much more. The class will improve the student’s travel photography four ways: 1) Going local by using apps to find local experiences, 2) Researching the local culture and etiquette, 3) Developing a travel photography theme, 4) Using HDR, panorama, Polarizing filter, and more. Prerequisites: Photography 1 and 2 or equivalent Students can use any type of camera or cellphone camera. Got a question? Ask the teacher, Jim Beecher, at Ask Jim.
