Having a camera on our cell phones or one small enough to fit in our pockets means that we can take pictures anywhere. Capturing the scenery, people we see, and places we go on our bikes is a way to preserve those memories and share them with others. Have you ever thought how nice it would be to come back from a motorcycle trip with the kind of photos that grace the pages of motorcycle magazines? John Flores, contributor and photographer for RoadRUNNER magazine, has written a short but informative eBook outlining ten tips that can set you on your way to taking high quality pictures of your travels.
The focus of this 44 page guide to moto-photography concentrates on the basics of composition and lighting. The eBook explains a tip and follows it up with photographic examples to illustrate the point. John’s experience and love of photography are evident in the beautiful examples and straightforward information included in each tip. This is not a comprehensive guide to photography. It is a well thought out jumping off point to helping you capture interesting pictures that will separate yours from the typical travel photos.
Ten Tips: Motorcycle Travel Photos by John Flores can be purchased for $2.99 from the Amazon Kindle store. With the free Kindle App you can read this on almost any tablet or smartphone on the market. If you are at all interested in learning how to take better photographs of your touring trips I highly recommend forgoing your Starbucks for one morning and purchasing this eBook.
UPDATE: ver 2 of Ten Tips: Motorcycle Travel Photos is now available for download in the ITunes store for IPad.

What I love most with reading motorcycle travel blogs is the fact that riders took time to capture the beautiful scenery they pass along the way.
