How to Take Great Holiday Photographs

How to Take Great Holiday Photographs

by JohnHedgecoe (Author)


There cannot be anybody these days who does not take a camera on holiday to record, what is often, a once in a lifetime experience. And yet, holiday photography, with its enormous variety of subject matter, from simple portraits of new friends to a stunning mountain panorama, must offer more challenges to the non-professional than any other field of popular photography. Drawing on his immense wealth of experience, John Hedgecoe diligently shows how to prepare for all these eventualities and explains what is the minimum of equipment needed to confront these challenges without being laden with cumbersome and weighty kit. From a sunny beach to a steamy jungle trek, a day in the country to a bracing mountain resort, this book tells how to capture those images that will make opening the holiday album a delight for years to come.
