If you love to travel and love to take pictures then you are not alone. Many of us love to do both. To travel to a great place takes preparation. To get a great picture requires some thought. This web site offers pictures and commentary about a great variety of fascinating travel destinations.
In addition this web site offers clear and concise information and tips on how to become a better photographer. One person said of this web site: “Enjoy reading about the Grand Canyon, Jerusalem, and even tips on becoming a good photographer. Enjoy learning how to become a great photographer while on vacation!”
Another person commenting on this site said: “We never used Photo Sharing beyond attaching a photo to an e-mail. We recently read an article “Sharing Photos.” Interesting, enjoyable, and informative, it opened a new photographic process for our use.”
A common thread running through the lives of great photographers is how they learned from one another. Among the great photographers on almost all lists would be Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand and Lewis Wickes Hines.
Ansel Adams in 1927 met photographer Edward Weston. Together they were very important in the group f/64. This group brought the new West Coast vision of straight photography to national attention and influence. In 1930 Adams met photographer Paul Stand. Stand had been a student of Lewis Wickes Hines. Hines is credited with being the founder of documentary photography. Ansel Adams is said to have most admired the work and philosophy of Alred Stieglitz who was a leading authority on the history of Photography.
This web site lays no claim to being in the category of the above famous photographers, but the author holds the belief that we can learn much from the photographs of other people. We also can learn of places to visit from the experience and pictures of others.
