During the years I’ve worked organizing photo tours, I have seen a lot of things, and helped people take a lot of incredible photographs. My clients often ask me for tips on how to do travel photography well, as it is quite different from other types of photography, and so I have come up with [...]

El fotógrafo Harry Fisch lleva años viajando a Varanasi, India. Desde su particular experiencia y a través de los viajes fotográficos que organiza con Nomad Expediciones Fotográficas, es uno de los destinos que considera imprescindible para un fotógrafo. Aquí, un manual para iniciados en la fotografía viajera. Bienvenidos a la India.
Wide-angle lenses are indispensable in travel photography. When I organize photo tours, I find that each and every trip has a storytelling component. Almost always, we as photographers, strive to not only describe a situation, but tell a tale, and when it’s about people, we want to tell the audience the story of the hero …
Algo que nos suele incomodar cuando salimos de viaje fotográfico es el acercamiento a los personajes que nos llaman la atención. Si ya es difícil acercarse a un desconocido, hacerlo para sacarle una fotografía suele plantear un auténtico reto, cuando no se ve como un imposible. En este artículo, Harry Fisch, fotógrafo de viaje con una extensa experiencia en abordar desconocidos, nos comparte algunas pautas aprendidas tras años de fotografía en los lugares más apartados del planeta.
The difference between a photo tour and workshop is how much time we dedicate to taking photos, analyzing them, and the subject matter. In both cases, we try to live and experience the culture as best we can, as well as taking photographs. But the photo tour we spend about 80% of our photo time taking photos, and about 20% on analyzing them and honing our vision. In a workshop we take about 50% to actually take the photos, but the other half of the photo time is dedicated to technical work and analysis.
Harry Fisch is a photographer you should know! He's traveled the world many times and produced must-see photographs that always leave us wanting more.
When it comes to being well-traveled, Harry Fisch sets a fine example. The sights his camera lens have photographed are enough to leave us speechless, inspired and envious all at once. Naturally, you don’t get the photos he has been able to take without stepping foot way outside the confines of everyday life.
For all of his work photographing around 27 countries in the past few decades, Harry Fisch has received praise in the form of winning some of the world’s most prestigious contests. His accolades include championing the World National Geographic Photo contest in 2012 (he was later disqualified for editing out a small bag), becoming a finalist in the SONY World Photo Awards and in Spain’s Photoespana.
Because we know that photography, like many forms of art, is built on the inspiration of years and years of artists’ work, and that there are few better catalysts for creative stimulation than the observance of others’ art, we think Harry Fisch is someone you definitely want to follow.
Blurring is a Tool, Not a Gimmick Adding blur or movement to a photo just for the sake of it is the same as a magic trick; razzle-dazzle but without purpose. Using a blur effect makes sense when you actually wants to say something specific with the photo. Sometimes it’s to create a sense of …
In the same way a golf player uses the club as an excuse to get out and take a stroll, the camera is a great excuse to get to know the best countries and cultures, capture and depict emotions, put on the hat of a photographer documenting diverse cultures, and experience personal connections with the natives of every locale.
The important thing is to live the dream which has brought us to our destination. It is not a sum of visits and locales, one shouldn’t treat it like collecting clichés and postcards.
#1 Great travel photos are planned Just think about what you are going to do, understand the scene, watch the light, the movement of people inside the image. When you take your pictures you have to consider all factors: from the time of day and the light, to the emotional preparation of the characters. It …
EACH OF FISCH'S PHOTOGRAPHS TELL A STORY, THE PHOTOGRAPHER CREATES WITHIN THE CONSTRAINTS OF THE CHOSEN MEDIUM AN INTRICATE AND INTIMATE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE VIEWER AND THE ARTISTS SUBJECT. BY IMPLICATING A STORYLINE, A SECRET TO BE REVEALED, FISCH GOES BEYOND THE MERE AESTHETICS OF THE IMAGERY AND GENERATES A CURIOSITY, AN ATMOSPHERE OF INTRIGUE. IT IS CLEAR THAT THE HE HAS BUILT A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS SUBJECTS AND WITH GIVING US A SNAP SHOT INTO THEIR LIVES, SHARING AS FAR AS POSSIBLE THEIR DAILY EXISTENCE. HIS TECHNIQUE, VISION AND PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS WITH HIS SUBJECTS SETS HIM ASIDE AND ABOVE, AND THE GRACEFUL AND TENDER USE OF LIGHT, SHADE AND COLOUR MAKE HIS WORKS INCREDIBLE WORKS OF ART, WITH EACH THEIR OWN VOICE.
Ο φωτογράφος Harry Fisch δέχτηκε ένα e-mail από το Nat Geo (National Geographic) σχετικά με το διαγωνισμό φωτογραφίας που διοργανώνει κάθε χρόνο και τα αποτελέσματα του οποίου είχαμε δει εδώ. Στην αρχή ο Harry πίστεψε ότι κατάφερε να μπει στην τελική δεκάδα. Τα πράγματα όμως ήταν ακόμα καλύτερα. Διαβάζοντας το e-mail διαπίστωσε ότι κέρδισε τον διαγωνισμό στην κατηγορία Τοποθεσίες. Από 22.000 συμμετοχές, από 150 διαφορετικές χώρες, η εικόνα που βλέπετε
