Nature Photography in Europe
Here are some tips for nature photography within the Europe, for visitors.
- Monopods are great for travel photography. They are inconspicuous and easy to double as a walking stick. Great for taking pictures in churches and museums where flashes are not allowed, and long exposure nightscapes.
- Film and processing costs more in Europe than in the United States, so bring extra film of the type you prefer.
- Make sure you bring your wide angle lenses - they're great for architecture and landscape scenes.
- Consider renting a GSM cell phone if yours does not work overseas. It's great for calling for more info and changing plans on the fly.
- Consider a rail pass if you plan to travel extensively in Europe - you can often hire a car at train stations to get out into the country.
- Definately try a Bed * Breakfast for the local specialties, and a hostel for meeting other adventurers.
- Bring semi-formal attire. Many places in Europe have dress codes - including restaurants, some museums and churches.
- Don't underestimate the pickpockets. Be aware!
- Inter-continental flights are very affordable.
- The subway systems of many of the larger cities like Paris and London are easy to use and very affordable. They go just about everywhere!
