Embark on field trips and explore a broad spectrum of natural environments, dramatic locations and sensational backdrops. The instructor discusses how to approach people, the secrets of body language, understanding local culture, being sensitive and flexible, and the technical aspects of the camera. We consider equipment and digital concerns in different travel environments, ways to photograph people, lighting, and the understanding of color.
