Travel Photography in Asia
Here are some tips for travel photography within the Asia, for visitors.
- Bring a macro lens for pictures of the culture
- Make sure you bring a bilingual atlas - by this I mean one that has the local character symbols AND the roman alphabet one. This makes it much easier to navigate.
- Japan has an excellent train and bus system which reaches just about everywhere. For individuals, the trains are likely your most economic option. For more than three people, a car rental will likely be cheaper. You'll likely need an International Driver's License.
- Subways and trains are clean, easy to use, and generally very safe.
- Bring a tripod or monopod for long exposures like nightscapes and waterfall shots.
- Lodging: In Japan, make sure you try a traditional Japanese Ryokan and Onsen.
- GPS navigation in many of parts of Asia like Japan and Korea are phenomenal.
- Don't underestimate the monkeys.
