Capture The Details: The Brooklyn Bridge, structure and cables.

Those of us who enjoy travel photography and are either pursuing it professionally, or are just enthusiasts put a lot of time and energy into learning their camera and their craft. This involves continuing education, workshops, and a huge amount of time actually practicing taking photos. In the beginning, a lot of us carry around our cameras where ever we go. That’s the only way to get better. Practice makes perfect.

However, that does not mean I can’t offer a few basic tips on how to capture great travel photos. I will focus on (1) getting close, (2) filling the frame, (3) capturing the details, and (4) beating the rush. Welcome to this episode of Travel Talk with Terri: Very Basic Travel Photography Tips.
