My new book, PHOTO CAMINO, is now almost finished. It’s running at just under 45K words, and will be ready for publication in less than two weeks now.
Here is the blurb:
“Before walking my first Camino, I gave a lot of thought to my photographic needs and the challenges ahead. I’ve been taking photos professionally for more than forty years, yet even so I made some big mistakes on that first pilgrimage. I’ve since walked another Camino, and now I wish to pass on what I’ve learnt from those experiences.”
In Photo Camino, renowned Australian film director and photographer Bill Bennett, author of the Camino memoir The Way, My Way, discusses such issues as:
- The best camera to take
- The major challenges facing a photographer on the Camino
- The pros and cons of using your smartphone
- Power management and security of your gear and images
- How to best take landscape shots
- How to protect your camera from bad weather
- How to blog and post to social media
- How to use your camera to enrich your Camino experience
- The twelve Classic Camino shots and how best to take them
- Bill’s Top 100 Tips for photography on The Way
Complete with dozens of stunning photographs, Photo Camino is required reading for anyone wanting to take photos on the Camino de Santiago, or for those that simply want to discover the wonder of this ancient pilgrimage route.
