Travel Photography Tips
- When traveling, it might not be practical to carry a large camera and a lot of heavy lenses around so consider a wide-ranging zoom lens or a superzoom compact camera. Built-in GPS will help you log where your pictures were taken.
- Compact and mirrorless cameras are usually more discreet than DSLRs, both in terms of size and also the sound their shutters make. A quiet camera will draw less attention and allow you to shoot without standing out from the crowd.

Landscape Photography Tips
- It’s a common misconception that filters are unnecessary when shooting digitally. A good quality UV filter provides valuable protection to your expensive lenses, and polarizing and neutral-density filters can transform landscape shots.
- Virtually all cameras these days offer self-timer modes, but a wired or wireless remote release still gives the most versatility, allowing you to trigger your camera immediately, but without risking the introduction of vibrations to your setup.

Wildlife Photography Tips
- When choosing a lens for wildlife, pay attention to its aperture range as well as its maximum zoom setting. A lens with a brighter maximum aperture but less zoom range will probably be more useful than a longer, but slower lens when shooting in poor light.
- Tripods and monopods aren’t necessarily the most interesting things you’ll ever buy, but a good one should last for years. As well as static landscapes, then can also be very useful for wildlife photography.
