Travel Photography and Post Processing Techniques


From an extraordinary sunset on a quaint Greek Island to the bustling commerce of gondolas on the busy Rialto, in Venice, Italy, the memories of our favorite travel experiences are complex blends of all five senses. Sights, sounds, smells, and feelings coalesce to help create our visual memory, adding an emotional response to what we remember as a perfect and harmonious moment in time. 

With an overview of the post-processing techniques he uses to create his stunning imagery, Elia Locardi gives you the basics of the advanced dynamic blending and temporal blending techniques he implements to translate these emotional elements into his photography. In addition, he also discusses how to recognize the different feelings that can be created by shooting scenes at various times throughout day, and how to use the quality of the light to dramatically change the mood of your photography.
