DigitalRev Asks David Hobby to Share His Top Travel Photography Tips

On a recent trip to Hong Kong, David Hobby (aka. Strobist) caught up with his friends over at DigitalRev and offered some wise advice for the traveling photographer.

Hobby and Kai cover all the bases, from what’s in his camera bag when he travels to how he handles photography when on the go. Interestingly, his top tip (a two parter) has to do with traveling light and putting photography second when traveling:

Unless you’re being paid to shoot as a travel photographer, it’s mostly about the trip. Enjoy the trip and slip into photographer mode every now and then. You’re having experiences, and this little black box is recording them; and that’s it, it’s as simple as that.

For more tips from Hobby — plus a quick peek inside his own travel photography bag — check out the video at the top.
