As mentioned above, this course covers all aspects of photography whilst traveling, how and what to prepare before departing, and editing skills you can use once you have your images. After a brief introduction that highlights a little of the history of travel photography, including why and how it came about, the course moves onto the first module: Preparation.

Continuing with advice on photography techniques, module 3 goes into depth about a number of techniques, when and how to employ them, and it also explains what the various standard modes on your camera should be used for. It also brings up some ideas on how to improve your compositions, and photography in general, along with giving some ideas of how to adapt if the weather is not going your way.

Module 4 guides you through what to do once you’re back from your trip. This includes information on what to look out for when sorting through your photographs and a variety of techniques you can use to correct or improve images, using computer software.
