People Travel Photography

People photos may be of celebrities or complete strangers, paparazzi pics or a form of documentary photography; where a street photographer tries to capture a visual moment and convey something of a person's story like a photojournalist.

Many photographers seem to think of travel photography as focusing on landscapes and buildings; maybe even playing around with a tripod to get everything looking just right.

But some of the best travel photography is of the people in the places we travel to; candid photos of the locals doing things, often in the street or place of work.

Good candid photography attempts to capture people acting naturally; blind to the camera, unaware of the photographer, and probably not looking directly in the lens.
