We visited London in the middle of May, but I did not bring my camera gear. Rather I brought along just a small camera, my Canon Powershot G12 that I won last year. It is a nice camera, but there is something to the weight and feel of the larger cameras available.
I am always striving to be a better travel photographer, and one of the key tricks is to add layers to your pictures. The best showcase for that is an image from National Geographic by Sam Abell titled “Cowboys branding cattle” (direct link to image). I also liked some of the photographs shown in this little blog on iPhone travel photography (especially this photo).
A common part of both these images are the layers present in the image. How the foreground add information to the background. This is a skill you need to practice in order to perform well. I’ll do my best this summer. What about you?
