More info @ PPSOP Travel Photography II: PPSOP Travel Photography I was such a fun course we decided to create and offer a more in-depth and deeper practice of photography with Travel Photography II. Many of us have such a desire to get out into our ever-shrinking worlds and capture all that we see and experience. With Travel I we learned some key foundational elements of photography, traveling, and some of the technical things needed to help take our ‘travel snaps’ and turn them into solid travel images. Now we will be building off of those key lessons and practices by strengthening and deepening our approach to the subjects we experience around us. Whether we are on Safari or simply roaming through our hometowns, we will learn how to make the best images possible, and ones that can convey a story and a sense of our experience of place.
