Whether you’re heading to Paris or San Francisco, Patagonia or Yosemite, you need a book that goes beyond the camera manual to teach you how to take great shots. This guide by pro photographer John Batdorff will help you conquer the fundamentals of travel and street photography and capture stunning pictures.

Batdorff starts with the basics–composition, light, and exposure–and how to plan and pack the right equipment for different types of shooting conditions. He also covers all the key camera features that affect your image. Once you’ve captured those shots, John takes you step-by-step through an effective workflow in Lightroom to organize your images and develop your own personal style.

This guide is for beginning-to-intermediate digital photographers to understand the basics and bring their own unique artistic expression to any situation whether you’re taking landscapes, cityscapes, portraits, or food and drink shots.

Beautifully illustrated with large, compelling photos, this book teaches you how to take control of your photography to get the image you want every time you pack up your camera and take it on the road.
