What's it all about?

The lure of travel is surpassed only by the inevitable desire to bring home pictures and share your adventures. Since the late 1800s when George Eastman produced the first traveling camera with the slogan, "You press the button, we do the rest," travel and photography have been eternally joined. With the added benefits of digital photography so readily available to consumers today, the field is full of new opportunities and new challenges.

Join us and discover this fascinating world through a photographer's eye. This course will address the special needs and techniques digital photographers need to capture scenes from around the world and bring them home. We'll focus on specific tips for digital photographers, and how to use both traditional techniques as well as those unique to digital equipment.

We'll look at subjects such as wildlife on land and at sea, and how to get the best shots of animals in captivity as well as those in the wild. We'll discuss ways to blend in with nature for this popular area of photography and the best kind of equipment for specialised shooting.

We'll share tips on taking shots for professional use and those to treasure from a family vacation. We'll discuss the situations that require model and property releases, and those that don't. You'll learn how and when it's appropriate to pay people to take their picture and how to make the most of those types of opportunities.

Environmental challenges can put your camera equipment in jeopardy, yet conditions such as freezing temperatures and tropical heat often abound in some of the most beautiful places in the world. This class will address those issues and offer practical solutions that travel easily.

You'll learn more about traveling with digital equipment and what to take and what to leave behind as you venture into the wilderness, onto a cruise ship, up in a helicopter, or over an international border. We'll share various examples from destinations around the world, and expand your knowledge of techniques for shooting digitally and working with the images after you get back.
