Travelling can perhaps challenge photographic skills perhaps more than anything else. This is because there is usually such a variety of photographic subjects and photo opportunities. There are many considerations, for example:

  • What to take - too much equipment can be as much a problem as too little
  • Timing - Climatic conditions as well as events provide different opportunities in different places at different times (eg. Shadows that can be difficult to work with may be more of a problem at certain times of year or day).
  • Legal Considerations - laws can vary: in some places, you may need official permission before you can take a photograph of something.

An ideal course for anyone planning a holiday. Over eight lessons, you will be shown how to achieve a quality record of your trip on film. Your tutor will advise you on what type of equipment you need and where to buy it.
