Nevada Wier will discuss how to combine technical, practical, and creative aspects of travel photography in order to get an image that elevates itself above the usual travel clichés. Nevada tells ways to approach and creatively photograph people, cross-cultural considerations, using natural light, fill-flash, tips on equipment, and digital concerns in the field.
