Practical Travel Photography
The B&H Event Space (420 9th Ave., Manhattan)

Travel photography is about capturing a moment, a place or culture, and your digital SLR is the perfect tool for doing this.

If you are planning a luxury African safari or just a weekend escape, join corporate and editorial photographer Ron Wyatt, as he presents his tips for memorable travel photography. In an easy-to-understand, straightforward manner, Ron will teach you the fundamentals of shooting great vacation shots, as well as capturing the flavor of local culture, and portraying landscapes in their best light. Ron will discuss what you need to do in preparation for your trip, and the practicalities of traveling with your photo gear. Selecting the right lenses is always a critical decision before traveling and Ron will offer some practical suggestions on which lenses are best for various kinds of situations. He’ll discuss “storytelling with your camera”, offer tips for photographing people, and reveal his methods for great street photography. Ron’s presentation is liberally illustrated with his images from his recent travel to China.
