Travel Photography – What to Look for When You Travel

by Beth Reynolds

Beth Reynolds, Director of Photography for the Morean Arts Center in St. Petersburg, is our April presenter.  Beth presented a beautiful program for CCB members early last year, and we just had to invite her back for a 2020 program.  She enthusiastically agreed to return.  This is great news for CCB members. The topic of Beth’s presentation is Travel Photography- What to Look for When you Travel.  This is an exceptional opportunity to learn what makes a notable travel portfolio. Beth leads a dynamic photography project every year entitled “One Day Tampa Bay” where 100 photographers document Tampa during a 24-hour period. She knows what makes a travel photo stand out above the others. Plan to attend the April program to find out how you can create remarkable travel images.
