Overview

Go on location around the globe to learn the techniques that professional photographers use to make great photographs.
Whether traveling with family or friends, for pleasure or for business, more of us tote cameras along than ever before. Rick Sammon guides us through dozens of different shooting situations from action shots to portraits, from aerials to zoos, from low light to bright light, from landscape to cityscape, from close-up to panorama, from silhouettes to sense of depth.
The book features how-to tips from a photographer who has traveled to over fifty countries, from photographing seals under the ice in Siberia's Lake Baikal to monarch butterflies on Mexican mountaintops. Sammon's thematically organized excursions take the reader to Vietnam, Kampuchea, Guatemala, India, Alaska, Singapore, Maine, Texas, New York City, Las Vegas, Botswana, the Caribbean, and the American Southwest, among many other locations.

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
The book is a one-stop guide for anyone seeking to understand the fundamentals of color travel photography using a digital camera. The author is a renowned photographer who has traveled all over the world, as reflected by the photographs in the book. The first part of the book, entitled "Jumpstart Your Photography," summarizes the basics of travel photography. Part II, entitled "On Location," includes sections on how to photograph people, landscapes, captive animals, wildlife, seascapes, city life, and underwater subjects. Part III is a collection of photographs from Sammon's favorite travel locations, places where you are sure to find good subject matter for your photographs. The book concentrates on what the author refers to as the first 50% of digital photography: capturing the image. The other 50% involves digital darkroom editing (about which the author has written in two other publications). The photographs are exquisite. Prof. KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2006, Norton, 309p. illus. index., Ages 12 to adult.
