1. Photographing Popular Travel Subjects
This lesson will explore ways to photograph subjects that you may find on weekend outings. We’ll begin with a checklist of what equipment to bring, the advantages of traveling light, and the value of doing research on what you want to photograph and the best times to shoot these subjects. From there, we’ll discuss tips for shooting subjects that include mountains, beaches, small towns and big cities, deserts, canyons, and people in scenery.
Assignment: Submit 4 images of some of your recent weekend travels, and describe what techniques you used to get the shot.
2. Your Favorite Weekend Getaways
I will discuss some of my favorite weekend travel destinations, and how I have photographed them, including Las Vegas, NV, Sedona, AZ, San Francisco, CA, Santa Fe, NM, Yosemite, CA, rugged coastlines, and desert scenery.

Who is this course intended for?
Beginners, burgeoning pros, and other photo enthusiasts who have some experience with their camera can take this class. Anyone who loves shooting travel photos is welcome!
Will this course include instruction on image editing?
No, but image submissions that are edited in Photoshop, Lightroom, or other image editing programs are acceptable.
Why should I take this course?
If you love shooting scenic and other travel subjects, but have only a limited time in which to travel, you’ll benefit from some of these techniques and tips that are geared towards weekend (or very brief) trips. I have very tight time restrictions, but have found short periods of time to get on the road and shoot pictures – I hope you’ll benefit from my experiences.
