Travel photography has a certain lure that brings out the uninhibited snapshooter in all of us. But how do you deal with the volume of images you download to the computer after your trip? At that point, it’s high time to sharpen your eye as a photo editor. According to award-winning travel photographer Krista Rossow, photo editing is a practice that really should begin before you leave on a trip...

I have lost count of how many cameras and lenses have been unintentionally dropped or damaged while traveling in a foreign country. In France, a friend accidentally dropped my 35mm point-and-shoot in the English Channel. In Laos, I thought it was a good idea to take pictures in the middle of a tubing trip down the Nam Song River. In Korea, I became a regular at the Nikon service and repair center...

One of the biggest worries a photographer has during an extended trip is whether or not all of the digital files and photos they create will make it back with them. Everyone knows the best way to protect these precious documents and memories is to perform backups, just like you would if you were at home. However, there is the small problem that you aren’t at home with your RAID arrays and card...

It was October of 2012, and I was in the middle of a 40 km trek to remote Hmong and Khmu villages outside of Luang Prabang, in Northern Laos. I was two months into a fifteen-month trip around the world that I had been dreaming of for quite some time and planning for a year prior to my departure. I spent more time debating which camera system to bring than anything else. I forwent my film cameras...

I was in the middle of Burma (Myanmar, if you prefer) when I told my travel partner that it had always been my dream to spend a year traveling around the world. “Would you ever do that? Spend one whole year traveling?” I asked, making conversation, as one does several days into roaming around a foreign country. “Sure,” he responded. In that moment, unbeknownst to my travel partner, traveling...

During my photographic travels in Africa, I meet a lot of international tourists, most of whom are on the popular traveler circuit of Cape Town and Victoria Falls, followed by a wildlife bush experience, which is generally recommended by a travel agent....

The theme of travel is infectious on Instagram, given the more than 100 million posts boasting a “#travel” hashtag. And things get decidedly more complicated from there, since the American spelling of traveler/traveling, and the British spelling with double l’s yield similarly stratospheric figures. Not to mention numbers for synonyms such as #adventure, #voyage, and #wanderlust. Given such...

It is no accident that carrying and using a tripod is a hallmark of many professional photographers. Here are a dozen of the latest travel tripods that fulfill the time-honored maxim that “the best tripod is the one that’s with you”—not the behemoth you left at home. No other photographic accessory will elevate the technical quality of your pictures more easily or predictably—even in this digital...

This summer, as you kick your feet up and sip from an ice-cold drink, the last thing you want to worry about is storage. It can drive many people crazy to rely on a semi-mysterious device to keep all of the precious memories and photographs of their most recent excursion safe, especially as they go about their travels. Hopefully, this...

The only thing more important than picking the right travel partner (if you’re not flying solo) is picking the right bag. A necessary task on every pre-trip checklist, this is entirely subjective to the person carrying it, as well as to the kind of trip they will be taking. In my case, I needed a bag that could last through a year of travel that would include, but not be limited to, countless...

I will admit it… I went into this project trying to break cameras. As I’ve written many times before, I love “tough” point-and-shoot cameras simply because they provide the kind of durability that all of your gear should offer; they can be handled roughly, treated poorly, and still perform their duties. More so, they can be submerged and shoot underwater and withstand dust, drops, and crushes,...

As prices continue to plummet and resolution continues to rise, it is becoming commonplace for amateur and hobbyist photographers to purchase a high-quality digital stills camera—mirrorless or DSLR. Even a photographer with a $500 camera can capture amazing clarity with just about no training whatsoever. Almost every one of these cameras now has the option to shoot video, usually in an HD...
