I organize photo tours and, in travel photography I am usually faced with a scenario that is hardly controllable: people are what they are and objects are where they are.... Finally, light is where it is.
Published in LSR Magazine, USA
When you work in a studio, you control the variety, intensity and origin of light; when on a photo tour, your chances are limited to choosing, within a narrow margin of possibilities, the best time to be at the location and placing characters and objects according to the scenario and the existing light.

On a Nomad Xpedition photo tour when my customers find themselves in a field in Tuscany , the Malecon of Havana or among the members of a tribe in Ethiopia, they can normally only count on their camera and little else.
They usually do not carry reflectors, or large flashes. The only advantage they can have at the time of taking a decent photograph is to understand how light works and, above all, how the camera “sees” light. While landscape photographers often repeat their photographs on several consecutive days at the same location, this is a luxury you can rarely afford in travel photography.
