About this eBook

Have you ever returned from a trip and looked at the photographs you made only to find that they were uninspired?  Or surely you’ve sat through someone else’s slideshow presentation of their travels and thought to yourself, "Will this ever end?  Was there nothing else in that place to photograph but monuments and plates of food?"

In Essence of a Place: A Photographer’s Guide to Using a Shot List for Capturing Any Destination, travel photographer, author, international photo tour guide and app creator Ralph Velasco outlines the importance of maintaining a shot list in order to create a more complete cultural portrait of a place.  These images should then be the basis for more compelling slideshows, interesting books and websites, that grab and hold your viewers' attention. Learn to go beyond the more obvious categories of Architecture, People and Landscapes by capturing Color, Details, Night Scenes, Interiors, the Underbelly and so many more.
