Here's another great tutorial from our friends COOPH who, this time, not only have some great tips to share but they're demonstrating how you don't need a huge amount of gear to capture great shots. 

The above video tutorial is all about travel photography as the team recently went on a long weekend in Vienna, Austria, armed just with the Tamron 18-400mm zoom lens and a city full of photographic potential. 




Topics covered in the tutorial are: 

  1. Experimenting with zoom burst
  2. Using the full zoom of a superzoom to focus on distant subjects
  3. Going the opposite way and shooting wide to get more in the frame
  4. Capturing landscapes with foreground interest and lead-in lines
  5. Looking for the small details 
  6. Photographing people 
  7. Playing around with apertures

We can vouch that a one-lens challenge is a lot of fun as it's something we've actually explored previously on site. Plus, who wants to be weighed-down with kit when you're exploring a new place. We also have a top list that counts down our superzoom travel lens recommendations that you might want to peruse.
