TAKEAWAY: Careful here… If you take a picture of the Coliseum in Rome, you are entering the great gallery of the sameness, repeat sameness, photos that have been taken the last decade. In other words, this is a “so-so” picture that photobuyers are going to consider as the average postcard picture of the Coliseum. Instead, go one step fuirther and make it an editorial photograph using Rohn Engh’s formula: P=B+P+S+I.

TELL A STORY -- In some of the workshops Layne Kennedy conducts, participants share just ten shots at the end of the trip. “They learn how to edit their images down and tell their travel story in a concise, compelling way,” explains Layne Kennedy, a Minneapolis based magazine editorial photographer, who leads many travel photography workshops in the states and abroad. “It’s not just about taking great travel pictures, it’s about telling a story,” he says.

COLOR OR B+W? Travel photography tips: color or B+W? It's a tricky question. The answer depends on the look that you are trying to achieve. Some images are more reliant on texture and tone than on color, and other images need the color to tell their story. B+W is also considered slightly more 'arty' but at the end of the day it's what you, the photographer, prefer.
