3.0 out of 5 stars Travel Image Subject Matter Inspiration Jan. 30 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
An okay little book with lots of tips and hints on travel photography. The real strength of this book is the coverage of potential subject matter, providing plenty of food for thought. If your a beginner you may find coverage of the basics a bit brief, though there is still useful content in these early sections of the book for all. As an early intermediate picture taker, I found the lens aperture and shutter speed information included with most of the images useful in understanding the scope and context of those combinations selected for the different subjects. If you know your way around your camera equipment and are looking for some inspiration on what to photograph on that once in a lifetime trip, then take a look at this book. It is small enough that you can take it with you without adding too much to the baggage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for beginners on travel Oct. 16 2002
Format:Paperback
I just went on holiday for a month to Indonesia with my girlfriend. She gave me this book about photography because I want to do more with my minolta then just making quick snapshots. I fell completely in love with it and the way Richard explains thing to the reader. You immediately feel that he is not just a professional photographer who stands above you with his experience and let you know he does. No, you really feel instantly that he talks to you as a friend who's gone through the same experiences and made the same mistakes the reader is making. And the images are stunning too.
This book was a real workbook for me during my travel through Indonesia and I'll recommend it to anyone who want to make more of his travel pictures. Thank you Richard L'anson.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very practical guide April 25 2011
Format:Paperback
Today, digital photography is so ubiquitous, and some people even have a camera on them all the time. If not, technology has made it possible to take photos with our phones. But how many times have we looked at pictures feeling disappointed? This edition of Travel Photography offers a practical guide on composition of a good (and interesting) photo when the chance to take a good photo is quite limited (i.e. limited stay on a trip). It also has great suggestions on selecting the right camera, processing, and even selling digital photos. As an amateur and someone who's constantly on the road, I really recommend this to anyone who cares about taking nice shots.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a guide to taking better pictures... Dec 29 2001
Format:Paperback
Well, what can I add? ... what my fellow readers haven't mentioned yet... and I concur.
Why am I giving only 4 stars you may ask? (I would have given 4.5, but this option is not available.) Well, I rate books with four stars when the book is very well written, good quality in word and print AND will be used over and over again.
I am a hobby photographer since many years, have taken thousands of photos... and may therefore be the wrong audience. Someone said "a beginners guide", I agree. I was wondering what I don't know, going through the book twice, comparing the images and advice with my own experience. He is right. I have read it, will put it aside and most likely not look at it again.
But if you are new to the field of photography, reading this book will save you rolls of film and will let you learn a lot, in either case: in digital or conventional photography.
The book is very nice, a compact format and what I've realised later (when reading it a second time) that this is a Lonely Planet book. Another or an added bonus. They have great photographers (Richard is one of them) and the travel guides are brilliant... so is this guide.
The book also revealed the answer to a very important question I had: It's the 24 mm lens, which gives you the most action and coverage. (Just to give you an idea: 30% of the images have been taken with a 24mm lens, another 26% was shot with a 100mm lens. I found that interesting.) A finding which influenced my desire to get one.
Happy reading.
Regards,
Max
