Storytelling and Serendipity

Lecture no. 6 from the course: The Art of Travel Photography

Storytelling and Serendipity

Taught by Professor Joel Sartore | 27 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses

Great information on how to capture an image that has been captured a million times. Great information on capturing the correct light and what to do if you simply don't have it.
