When Craig and Caz approached me to put an article together on tips for improving travel photography, I have to say I was flattered.
I love taking photos, and to be asked to share my thoughts on how travelers can get the best from their camera was a wonderful opportunity.

The second post will cover things like photography equipment, a basic overview of photography jargon, and getting the best out of your photos with digital editing tools.
