Watch Travel Photography: Capturing the Essence of a City

Join Scott Kelby as he shows you how to capture the essence of the locations you visit when you travel. Though this is set in Venice, this is not a class on photographing Venice as the tools and techniques you’ll learn can be applied to any city that you visit. Scott shares his big picture perspective on how his travel photography has evolved, the gear and camera settings he uses, tips for scouting locations before you go and after you arrive, tips for shooting exteriors and interiors of buildings, how to photograph people, and so much more. The ultimate goal is being able to tell a story with your photographs that captures the timelessness of the city, and makes your audience go “wow, I want to go there!”
