How to Create Captivating Travel Photos

How to Create Captivating Travel Photos

_wp-content_uploads_2010_06_Travel-book-book-graphic1-11.jpgI’m excited today to announce the launch of a brand new dPS eBook that will help you improve your Travel Photography!

If you’re anything like me, traveling is something that you put a lot of time and thought into preparing for. You plan your itinerary and dream of the sites you’ll see… and photograph.

You have visions of returning home with hundreds of stunning pictures to wow your friends with and hang on your wall – what a photographic opportunity!

The reality of travel photography can sometimes be quite different to those dreams.

One of the most common emails that I get as editor of a photography site is from people just returned from traveling with images that they’re bitterly disappointed in – snapshots that fail to capture the experiences and sites you have while traveling.

When professional travel photographer Mitchell Kanashkevich approached me about producing a travel photography eBook together I jumped at the opportunity to work with him – it was a chance to help many readers realize their travel photography dreams.

Today we’re launching the book that Mitchell has been working on for months – Transcending Travel: A Guide to Captivating Travel Photography.

If you’ve been reading Mitchell’s posts over the last two days (here and here) that explore mistakes travel photographers make you’ll have seen some of the powerful travel photography that Mitchell has produced and will be familiar with his style – he’s a guy who knows what he’s talking about and who is passionate about helping others achieve their potential.

You can read all the details about the Transcending Travel eBook here.

PS: as with all of our eBooks, this one has a money back guarantee (60 days) so if you’re not completely satisfied with it when you download your copy just ask and we’ll refund you payment.

    Bought the book and read it all. In line with some of the other best sellers that I have read. It's a guide for me in future on all my portable devices. Enjoyed the photos from my native India specially, because never every thought about the culture the way you have depicted in your pictures. Can't wait to go on my India vacation. Immediate help will come on my yellowStone national park trip next week :-)

    This is great. Thanks a lot.

    Hank, if you have a google account you can save it to your google docs and then access it via your ipad that way. I do that with my iPhone. It still is not stored locally, but I just keep a Safari page that shows the doc, and open new pages to do other web browsing.

    Just purchased the e-book. I must say that at first glance it looks really interesting filled with great info and photos. Looking forward to reading it and improving my photography skills. Thanks for the discount too.

    Halfway through the book (in advance of my trip to Africa) - well done guys!

    I ordered this ebook minutes after it was released and have to say it is brilliantly done. I am retired and a frequent traveller and this book is already a ' must have'. The information and tips are superb and the addition of the exif data with the photographs is an enormous help. I wish there was a pocket version so that I could have it on my travels. Brilliantly done.

    I bought it. 81 pages of complete awsomness :) Thanks a lot, this book is a real bargain and I love it already (Only read the first few chapters so more to come). I put a link on my blog and will recommend it to my friends.

    You will need an app like "Dropbox" to store the files on your iPad. Create a Dropbox account online (Link: you get 2GB of space free), get the Dropbox app for free from iTunes and add the book as a "favourite".

    Hank - download it to a computer and then use an app like Good Reader to view it. Not sure that ipads have the ability to store it directly on them without using an app

    Bought the book, but how do I download to anIPad... everytime I try to reopen it, I have to redownload.

    Darren and Mitchell, just wanted to say that I downloaded this book yesterday and am half way through it. I am LOVING it! Can't wait 'til my trip to Santa Cruz and Manhattan this summer to try some of the techniques! Thank you for the discount!
