Carolyn Stritch, The Slow Traveler, shares her approach and her Lightroom tips

It sounds like Carolyn is living the dream. Once a self-confessed nine-to-five office worker, she took an evening course in basic digital photography, quit her job and went travelling. 

It was the travel that inspired the idea that photography could be more than just a hobby. She spent two years travelling through India, South East Asia and Latin America. “Travel photography was the only kind I knew then, and that’s how I got my first published work. My Instagram took off through travel.”
