Photographers getting the best viewTravel Photography for everyone

An essential packing item for nearly everyone who travels is a camera. There can be many reasons why we take photos: for some photography is a pleasurable hobby, others just want to record the places they see or people they meet for their own memories, or to show friends and family back home, or they may even want to publish photos online or work as a travel photographer. For all reasons, getting to know your camera and getting the best photograph from each situation is important. This section of the Travel Almanac provides information on all aspects of travel photography, with guidelines and tips gained from our own experiences and using examples of our own photos from our travels.
