The experience of travel is undeniably a feast for the senses, especially visually — we’re riveted by the newness of our surroundings, caught by a particular detail or awestruck by an overwhelming feature. Nowhere is this truer than when we find ourselves faced with a landscape we want to capture. Landscape photography is a core element of travel, for the simple reason that landscapes encompass the places we see and want to remember.
We want to focus this week’s Twitter chat on the process of photographing the landscapes we come across — which appeal to us most, what common challenges we run into, and what advice we can share with each other.
This week join us, @tomcochrane, @thefella, @nicholasjrwhite and the Passion Passport community on Wednesday the 7th of March at 2:30 – 3:30pm EST to chat ‘Landscape Photography’! Make sure to tag us in your tweets with #PassionPassport.
