Allworth 9781581153262 reviews

Book: How to Shoot Great Travel Photos is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Average resource I purchase photography books every 1-2 months on average. I bought this one hoping for fresh insight on unique composition and maybe some tips on how to seek out photo ops that haven't been shot hundreds of time. I was underwhelmed by the content. In general it's just a collection of photographs and where they were taken. There are several instances of photographs without exposure information. It's advertised as being designed for both the digital and film shooter, but to that end it just denotes which images were shot with film or DSLR. No tips on how to maximize either format for travel. And it could have been an error on the publisher's part, but a lot of the images seem dark and underexposed. I didn't really get a lot of new information about travel photography, but it might be a useful resource to a beginner. Overall I wasn't impressed.
