The Insider Series to Travel Documentary Photography
First off, you don’t have to be a travel photographer to make use of this book.
The composition, lighting and post processing tips will help any photographer improve their portrait photography.
Mitchell knows what he is talking about. He is an award winning travel and documentary photographer, with his work appearing in top photography and travel magazines as well as Getty and Corbis to name but a few!
This ebook is a fantastic chance to take a look behind the scenes at one of his actual photo shoots.
The thing that most impressed me about this ebook was the gear that Mitchell used. A 400D, and one of the lenses he used was a 50mm f1.8.
Why is this so special? I have a 450D and a 50mm f1.8!
Which means… That the gear is on our level, it’s not a 5D or 1D.
It shows what an entry level DSLR can do! And it shows if he can do it so can we – with the help of his tips!
It’s laid out like a story and Mitchell takes you through the steps he uses to create the images, including:
- background information
- biggest challenge – how I managed it
- ‘what’ and ‘why’ of post processing
3 main points that stand out to me when I read this book:
- Any photographer can learn from these tips – composition, lighting and post processing.
- The equipment Mitchell used is easily accessible. He used a 400D and one of his lenses was a 50mm f1.8 (I have a 450D and a 50mm f1.8!)
- The story that the book takes you on, he breaks down 10 photographs into how, why, what and when.
