Description - Travel by Robert Caputo

For more than a century National Geographic photographers have traveled the globe capturing stunning images of all cultures and landscapes. Now national Geographic photographer Bob Caputo reveals secrets of the trade and shows readers how to improve their own travel photographs. Practically everyone becomes an amateur photographer when they travel. Whether it's family vacation to Disney World or a once-in- a lifetime African safari, photographs are a way to capture the experience. However, many people are disappointed when they develop their photos. Somehow the pictures never quite capture the grandeur of the experience. This book, the sixth in the acclaimed National Geographic Photography Field Guide series, will help transform those photos from weak reflections into vibrant expressions. National Geographic photographers always convey a sense of place with their images- this is the most difficult and most rewarding aspect of creating extraordinary travel photography. Caputo shares the steps he takes to ensure success, including preparation before leaving home. After outlining a basic photography kit, Caputo addresses specialized needs, depending on the travel location. Smart, practical advice includes how to protect your equipment while traveling in bad weather, and which subjects make the best photographs. Drawing from extensive experience accumulated through years of circumnavigating the globe, Caputo and other well-known National Geographic photographers pass along valuable tips to turn the most hopeless shutterbug into a picture-taking pro.
