Overview

An exotic landscape does not necessary equal a stunning photograph—but knowing the secrets of the professionals helps. This sumptuously photographed guide shows both accomplished amateurs and snapshot-taking tourists how to hone their skills so they can get a good picture no matter where in the world they are. In fabulous detail, it explores the wide variety of available equipment, from batteries and lenses to flashes and filters; offers lessons in photographing people on location, including such issues as whether or not to pay locals for posing; discusses the etiquette of photographing religious and sacred places; and reveals how to capture the essence of a locale. Most of all, the dazzling images—from sites across the globe—are absolutely inspirational.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

With books on film photography becoming nearly obsolete, many writers are jumping in to replace them with digital equivalents. We are due for a great book on digital travel photography, but this is not it. Heller's travel photos are stunning, but he does not identify where they are taken. Much of his advice on travel photography isn't very different from that needed for stay-at-home shooting. More general books, like John Kim's 40 Digital Photography Techniques, 3d ed. (reviewed below) cover lenses, filters, memory cards, zoom, pixels, and night shooting as well if not better. Some advice, such as that on batteries, will shortly be out of date. Not essential.
