Travel photography is more than just taking your camera on vacation. Making good images on the road is challenging and requires a little extra effort.
Great travel photography requires a command of many types of photography – from close-up portraits and loose candids, to off-the-hip street photography at festivals and celebrations – from architecture and cityscapes, to landscapes and nature. Becoming versatile requires that you become like a one-man band, utilizing what technology has to offer while developing an eye for composition and a feel for being in the right place at the right time.
Angel is experiencing a renaissance in the digital world where the lines between creativity, art, and technology are disappearing.
