Lighting is different for travel photography than it is for other forms of the art. For instance, when shooting in a studio, you can control the light, but when out in the field, you have to plan according to sunlight.

It’s almost impossible for a traveler to move between destinations with bulky gear like large reflectors and flashes, and sometimes you’ll have a very limited window of time before the lighting disappears. So, with these challenges in mind, what are some basic tips for achieving great lighting?

7 Things to Pack for a Romantic Weekend Away

7 Things to Pack for a Romantic Weekend Away

Normal packing lists include things like socks, charger cords, and your favorite book. But a romantic weekend is something much different.

A romantic getaway typically implies that you plan to spend more time in the hotel than away seeing the sights. You probably won’t need your walking shoes and camera for something like this.
