This eBook is not for you
If you want to learn basics of photography, composition and post-processing, this eBook is not for you. There are probably better-suited eBooks around. I may touch on some of these topics as they are somewhat related to the main scope of this eBook. However, I will not go too much into a detail. If you are not interested in travel photography and challenges that are tied to this genre, you may also skip it. Also, this eBook won’t touch on business aspects of travel photography. If you are a professional travel photographer, you know what you are doing already.
