About This Class

The human element plays an integral role in travel photography. It's by including people in our shots that we are able to tell the stories of our travels- from local customs and culture to our own personal narratives.

In this course, photographer and full time wanderlust, Tiffany Mueller, delivers a detailed look at her creative process and the methods she uses to create powerful, eye catching travel photos by using a human element in the composition. You'll discover creative ways to incorporate people into your travel photos, whether you're photographing complete strangers or your closest friends and family. This class will give you the tools you need to break down a scene and conceptualize a shot. You'll also learn invaluable tips on etiquette and approaching strangers to photograph them, how to put yourself in the right place at the right time to catch inspiring candid shots, and training your eye to always be “on”.
