Travel Photography Tips – DPS Community Workshop


It is time for another Digital Photography School Community Workshop. This week’s question is from Sandy who is asking for some Travel Photography advice in three areas.

Note: check out our Travel Photography Guide – Transcending Travel

If you have some advice for Sandy on any of their questions feel free to leave your tips in comments below:

In a couple of weeks I am heading off on a six month round the world trip (part work part vacation) and I’d like to ask your advice on three areas with regards to my photography.

Firstly – how would you recommend managing my images while away? I have three fairly high capacity memory cards – but am petrified at the cards getting lost or damaged. How should I back up my images?

Secondly – I have a Canon EOS 40D DSLR and am wondering if you could give me some advice on what lenses to take? I am willing to purchase one if you recommend one that I don’t already have. Obviously space/weight is at a premium.

Lastly – any general advice on Travel Photography? I’m both excited and nervous about capturing my adventures with my new DSLR – any hints or tips that you could give would be greatly appreciated.

PS: In addition to the advice of the wider DPS community – here are a few tips and tutorials from our archives to get you started Sandy.

Lastly – I’ll put in a vote for the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens as a great walk-around lens for your trip (if you have the budget for it – it’s not cheap). I took it on a recent trip and while I did take a couple of other lenses with me the 24-105mm rarely left my camera.
