Missed opportunities are a photographer's nightmare - especially when faced with the once-in-a-lifetime sights of a trip away from home. Whether it's the horde of tourists crowding that brilliant shot of the cathedral, the charming old man who refuses to give a smile, or the safari that results in a few too many pictures of empty sky, travel photography can be daunting for both beginners and the experienced alike. In The Traveler's Eye, Lisl Dennis clearly explains how to overcome these challenges to capture on film or video the essence of your travel experiences.
As an award-winning photographer and an experienced teacher of travel photography, Dennis understands the many dilemmas that arise when wielding a camera on foreign territory. Is there any way to take a novel approach to such overexposed sites as the Eiffel Tower, the Taj Mahal, or the Golden Gate Bridge? How can the serendipities of light and background be manipulated to create lively portraits? How can one handle requests made by potential subjects for tips? And what about buying and packing lenses, a tripod, film, and flashes for a safari versus a city trip?
To these and many other questions, Lisl Dennis brings the insights, experiences, and practical tips gained over her thirty years as a travel photographer. She offers not only fascinating information about the craft and art of photography but also eye-opening explanations of how she took the extraordinary photographs that illustrate her book. For everyone traveling with a camera, The Traveler's Eye is a stunning guide to getting truly memorable videos and photographs of any excursion, near or far.
