Travel Photography

Here is a sample of what to expect in the future Department of Journalism Travel and Documentary Photography class. Students will post photos online in several formats. This is photograph is of the Royal Albert Hall, background, and Albert Memorial, left side foreground, in London. When thinking about making photographs of interesting places, try not to just photograph the building. What is around it? Is there anything--like a fence--that can make it a little more interesting? Will including people help in order to show scale? Is it the best time of day? Here the clouds actually help.

Here are some examples of somewhat serious photos with reminders of why accurate captions are important.
