5.0 von 5 Sternen FABULOUS book - a must have 3. April 2013
Von Jennifer Lynn Eisele - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have dabbled in photography for over 15 years. This book made so many concepts finally click for me! The author is just so clear and concise. I found his instructions and insights to be pitch perfect for me - an amateur who would really like to step up her game. This book covers all the pertinent technical aspects of digital photography, great guidelines for a huge variety of compositions and subjects and finishes it off with relevant information on monetizing your pictures. I read this book front to back - which is so rare with a reference guide! I am very happy with this purchase.

4.0 von 5 Sternen For Beginners ( Which I AM) 15. Februar 2013
Von The Purple Bee - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
If you find most books about cameras, appeture, lighting, settings, etc, confusing, I think you will find this book worth while. It's not overwhelming which many I have purchased are. I think this is a book I can use for a long time to come as it becomes more advanced. The photos are nice and have info of how the end product was achieved.
I recommend.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent resource for travelers 17. Juli 2013
Von Christopher Alexander - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The BBC travel Facebook team recently posed the question, 'Do you have any regrets from your travels?' There were a variety of responses, but the most common one was, 'I wish I would have taken more photos.'

In my travels, I have taken some really lousy shots, as well as a few decent ones. Overall, though, less than 5% of my photos are worth emailing, posting on Facebook, or including in a holiday card. Photography can be tough, and the stakes seem high when we're far away and want to 'get it right.'

This book is a great resource for the traveler who needs tips on taking good photos. At 368 pages, it's a manageable book to get through, and peppered throughout are several photos taken by the author.

Unlike a lot of comparable books, this doesn't just focus on lighting, lens type, and filters. Yeah, that stuff is addressed, but it actually makes up very little of the content of this book. Rather, the author covers everything about travel photography from getting through customs with your equipment to selling your pictures once you get home.

Particularly for the traveler, this book addresses the delicate art of taking photos in crowded places, communicating with strangers, capturing daily life, and respecting local norms. In addition, the author covers topics such as:

* taking photos after dark
* photographing food
* how to photograph wildlife
* photographing moving objects
* getting your photos from camera to computer

I've read a good deal about travel photography, but this book still had a few nuggets I didn't know or hadn't thought of. I'll still never take photos as good as the author, nor is that my goal. What I like, however, is that the author gives a brief description of many of his photos, telling where he was and how the photo and photo opportunity came to be.

This is definitely a book for the person who identifies as a traveler who likes to take pictures; travel photographers, on the other hand, already know much of what is in here.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not enough travel info; too much generic photography 12. Juli 2013
Von P. Hanlin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
On its own, this is a decent photography book, but if you're looking for in-depth info on travel photography, you'll be disappointed. About half of the book is devoted to gear, editing workflow, sharing, and other general topics. That doesn't leave much room for the actual topic. While some might appreciate this generic info, many (even beginners) will have other books which cover the same territory. Based upon this, I suspect others in the series will have similar redundancy.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A Book for Professional Travel Photographers Rather than Holiday Makers 14. Februar 2015
Von Sator - Veröffentlicht auf
The problem with this book is that it really should have been retitled "Professional Travel Photography". It is written by a professional travel photographer, and it conveys the author's extensive experience in this genre (many of the shots in Lonely Planet books were probably taken by the author). Therein lies the problem. It assumes that the primary purpose of travel is photography. Too often the author recommends that you travel with a DSLR with at least a huge 70-200mm zoom lens, if not a colossal 600mm zoom lens, plus the obligatory high-end tripod that goes with it. It is assumed that almost your entire baggage limit will be taken up by photography equipment. The author probably regularly pays excess baggage fees for professional equipment but considers it a regular business expense. Included too are professional tricks on how to move around and spend hours trying to "get the shot" even under adverse conditions.

The trouble is that, from regularly reading the blogs of studio photographers, not even they can be bothered carrying all of that equipment around when they go on holiday. If you do take up the author's advice to spend ages trying to "get the shot", you will soon find that none of your friends or family will want to travel with you any more. They will just tell you to go sightseeing on your own. They will get bored as you spend hours at one spot obsessively trying to "get the shot". Soon they will roll their eyes whenever you set up your tripod. They will feel embarrassed to be seen beside you with your elephantine 600mm telephoto lens and photography vest filled to the brim with accessories. The author even suggests a lead protective jacket for film to prevent it being damaged by x-rays in security. Your friends/family will palm face as you slow transit through airports.

If you go along with the author's advice, in future you will be travelling on your own. In fact, that is probably how the author does work. That's the only way you could follow much of his advice without driving your companions nutty.

On the plus side, there are a huge number of useful "tips from a pro" that are the result of years of experience travelling with a full cache of professional photography gear. You get the feeling that there isn't a scenario (hazardous weather, threats of arrest from photographing security sensitive spots, equipment breakdown/theft) this author hasn't faced. In that sense, you can learn a lot from him. There are wonderful tips on shooting in situations that I have never seen described elsewhere. Typical, however, is that suggestion that when taking a helicopter ride with the "family" (sic) you should request the doors be removed to permit better shots to be taken...a common request from professional photographers apparently. Really? You are going to do that with young children on board?

The trouble is that if you did make photography the sole purpose of travel, and you pushed it to the limits like the author, it would soon feel more like work rather than leisure as you spend hours toiling through crowds, doorless helicopters, snow, typhoons, mud and insects toiling to "get the shot". Not even the most seasoned non-travel professional photographer on holidays will be able to be bothered...or else value their marriage/friendships too much.

Scott Kelby writes that he hates the pressure as a professional photography to "get the shot" when all he wants to do is have a holiday. He jokingly advises buying a set of postcards of key sites on day one and photographing them in the hotel room to satisfy demand from friends and family back home. That way you can just forget about the pressure to "get the shot" and just enjoy yourself.

So the usual readers of Lonely Planet Guides hoping to improve on their casual holiday snapshots will be bewildered by this book. I am afraid that as much as I enjoyed reading this book I am going to leave my 300mm lens at home when I travel. I doubt I can even be bothered taking my full frame DSLR abroad let alone any giant with a really long focal length. If I did take a DSLR I would take no more than one 24-70mm zoom lens, or just two petite primes (a 35mm and a lighter 50mm f/1.8 lens). Or better still, just take a high-end compact mirrorless camera.

There is also a technical problem in that the author fails to make explicit that a crop sensor APS-C camera automatically has a focal length that should be multiplied by 1.6, and this will mean any zoom lens you carry will be smaller and lighter than that for a full frame 35mm body. It's another instance of the author thinking like a professional travel photographer who is willing to carry heavy equipment to "get the shot" at all costs rather than thinking like someone on holiday. Even some professional landscape photographers eschew full frame DSLRs in favour of a lighter APS-C to reduce equipment weight when hiking for hours or even days to get to spots. Clearly, the author isn't a dedicated professional landscape photographer either.

The author fails to mention, too, that serious street photographers regard large SLRs with big lenses to be ill advised. It makes people duck for cover because it feels way too intrusive. So a more discreet camera is often considered an advantage. SLR shutter lag also means you can miss a candid moment. This type of spontaneous candid photography is often the better style of travel photography for the average holiday maker, and it is more socially acceptable to travel companions. However, that is clearly not the author's style of shooting, and so gets little coverage in the book.

In conclusion, I have no doubt as to the immense skill and experience of the author as a professional travel photography. What I question is why this book is pitched to professional travel photographers or the lone serious amateur to semi-pro who travels with the prime aim of photography. It is not pitched to the average buyer of Lonely Travel books at all. That said, there is much of interest in this book along the way for those with a serious interest in photography.

Recommended...with caveats!
