On the gear front, there have been a huge number of announcements for new lenses and camera bodies for multiple manufacturers so whatever brand interests you, know that there are some really cool options for upgrading and adding to your GAS... (Gear Acquisition Syndrome).
Having just returned from a vacation to not so sunny Arizona, (60s clouds and rain for 5 of the 8 days), I wanted to talk about photographing while on vacation.
The key to photographing vacation is taking advantage of what you have available. If you get clouds in Arizona, take a day trip to the White Tank Mountains and take advantage of the great lighting to get some fun landscapes.
Or you could photograph some birds at a friends feeder.
The key is to represent the area that you are photographing if you are going to use it for documenting your trip, whether while submitting for a Salon, for a travel magazine, or just to make an album of your vacation.
Another important feature of travel photography is to bring in important parts of the trip, like using a vintage car to make your drive to the mountains.
Make sure to include fun and interesting places that you take in, like an air museum, swap meet, vintage car show, or music museum. When you put it all together, and bring in the interest points you will have a great documentation of your adventure.
