Travel and Street Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots from Peachpit Press is a 264-page book by pro photographer John Batdorff. It's written in a conversational style, yet it is chock full of useful information. Whether you're heading to Paris, San Francisco, Patagonia, or Yosemite, you need a book that goes beyond the camera manual to teach you how to take great shots. This guide will help you conquer the fundamentals of travel and street photography and capture stunning pictures.

Batdorff starts with the basics, covering composition, light, and exposure. He goes over how to plan for and pack the right equipment for different types of shooting conditions. Additionally, he discusses all the key camera features that affect your image. Once you've captured those shots, John takes you step-by-step through an effective workflow in Lightroom to organize your images and develop your own personal style.

Whether you're a beginning or intermediate digital photographer, this guide helps you understand the basics and bring your own unique artistic expression to any situation, including landscape, cityscape, portrait, and food shots. Beautifully illustrated with large, compelling photos, this book teaches you how to take control of your photography, so that you get the image you want every time you pack up your camera and take it on the road.
