The following photos illustrate, I hope you’ll find, some of the ideas discussed above: looking for the non-obvious shot, anticipating action, including the human element, etc. These weren’t taken to support a specific design, but by photographing the markets, the food, and even children playing in parks, we hope to create a sense of the overall experience of being in that specific place.
When I’m traveling with Christopher it’s my job to get as many usable images as possible, and my camera is my constant companion. I take lots of photos when I’m traveling solely for pleasure, too, but I feel there are times it’s better to leave the gear in the hotel room and be open to experiencing your location in a more direct way. Being able to relax at dinner without having to keep a watchful eye on your camera creates an experience every bit as indelible—and even more valuable—as your most creative, evocative picture.
