Enjoy an exciting last-minute travel photography excursion to bring home your own stunning summer portfolio.

It's really about going for the moment while paying attention to composition, light and design.

Before crossing the border of summer into autumn on Labor Day, capture sizzling adventures and memorable emotions with a timeless souvenir - your own compelling travel photographs.

To help you do this, seven of the biggest travel photography questions are answered on a free "7 Photography Questions" podcast, which explores the nuances and secrets of great travel photography with master photographer Brenda Tharp and host Dr. Audri Lanford.

"To creatively seize fleeting travel experiences and the energy they convey, it is important to be ready for them when they happen," says Tharp. "It's really about going for the moment while paying attention to composition, light and design."

Tharp says "that means you first need to prepare yourself by carrying the right gear and getting in the habit of noticing and observing the details in your surroundings." Then, she says, it is possible for any photographer to better anticipate special moments that capture, as she explains, "some gesture, some expression, something that tells a story about what was happening."

In this interview, Tharp offers tips to make that all possible, including:

  •     The single biggest travel photography mistake and how to avoid it.
  •     Secrets for making travel photographs more dramatic and interesting.
  •     How to capture mood with strategic use of light, perspective, and viewing angles.
  •     Choosing the right gear that won't weigh you down, even with the new airline luggage regulations.
  •     Hints for structuring travel itineraries to make the best use of lighting.

Toward the end of the podcast, Tharp also delves into the subject of permission to photograph strangers and how to transcend language barriers in the pursuit of great travel photos in foreign countries. Click here to enjoy Brenda Tharp's exciting and informative interview on travel photography.
