That's right! What an amazing price!

Ever wonder why someone winds up on a best seller list? Why one cat video reaches thousands of viewers while another one doesn't? I mean, they are both about a cat pushing something off of a table, so why one over the other?

That's what this new lecture series is about.

It goes into the psychology of ideas. Also, it delves into the social aspect of it.

This series is good for anyone trying to get their concept promoted over another, but it is also good to just be aware of how messages can go viral. For example, parents are a good choice for this series so that they can be better prepared to teach to their kids about their phones, tablets, and computers. Kids may not fully understand that once something is on the internet, it can take a life of its own.

Try out this series today, you will be happy that you did.

Take better photos of your trip to Saint Petersburg - The Art of Travel Photography is 80% off

The Great Courses coupon
The Art of Travel Photography is 80% off now with our The Great Courses coupon.

One of the places that I have always wanted to travel to is Saint Petersburg, Russia.

It has such beautiful scenery, a rich history, and great food.

It is the most Westernized city in Russia and the city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was founded by Tsar Peter the Great in 1703. It is important to Russian economics as it has a port on the Baltic Sea.

One of the reason that Saint Petersburg is so idyllic for travel is that due to the move of the capital to Moscow, much of the 18th and 19th-century architecture has remained unchanged. Most of the modern buildings were built in Moscow. This has left Saint Petersburg as a relic of the past with beautiful, ornate buildings. Located on the river Neva, the water only adds to the beauty of the city.

Some of the sites I would like to see are Saint Isaac's Cathedral, Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral, Catherine Palace, and the Kunstkamera.

Most of these places are in the old Baroque style - very ornate and breath-taking.

That's why if I ever get a chance to go, I will want to take the most amazing photos possible. I want to capture the beauty of the city centre. I want to have my photos represent what I see, smell and touch.

This lecture series will do just that. It will fine tune your photography skills. No more too dark photos. No more will the site only 1/2 be in the picture. You will learn from the best, from a National Geographic photographer.

Why look forward to going to Saint Petersburg only to come back with subpar photos?

At 80% off, take the course, and increase your enjoyment of your trip for years to come.

Planning a trip can take a lot. You spend so much time carefully detailing the whole excursion. You spend hours first trying to find the location. You research travel books, friends recommendations, and news reports. You spent countless hours researching airfare - when the cheapest flights are, what seats you will be sitting in, and whether you will have enough leg room. As for the hotel, there are more hours invested in that. What is the best location? Is the hotel near a subway system? Is it near all the sites? Is the area safe?

So why when you spend so much time on all of this, do you not spend any time making sure the photos you capture of this once-in-a-lifetime trip are quality?

Now, you can take a step in the right direction with this lecture series.

Learn how to take those excellent photos. Learn the right camera to use, the right lighting, even learn how to make the photo more interesting.

You will learn from the best. Joel Sartore is a National Geographic photographer. I really don't think it gets much better than that when it comes to taking photos of travel.

At such a superb promotion price, this is one part of your trip you should definitely invest in.

One of the places that I have always wanted to go is Romania. I would love to take the most expert photos of my trip there. Photos that I could cherish for a lifetime thanks to this lecture series.

My ancestry is from Romanian decent. I would love to see where some of my familial roots are from.

Orsova, Romania
Some of the highlights for me would be the authentic food. I am so into food.  Some of the top items (I ate these every Thanksgiving) from Romania are cabbage rolls, grilled sausages, and, simply enough, baked potatoes. Things that I would like to try while I was visiting would be: potato goulash, radauti (translates to chicken soup), and pomana porcului.

Some of the sites I would like to see are: Bran Castle, Corvin Castle, Merry Cemetery, the Sphinx, and Moldovita Monastery.

I also think just walking around Bucharest would be fantastic. Some of the things I would like to do there are stroll the streets, get some coffee, and try and find the "old Paris". I guess Bucharest was known for awhile back in the day as the Paris of the east. However, an earthquake and communist rule after WWII destroyed the aspects that would associate it with Paris.

Also, outside of Bucharest, the Romanian lands are mostly agricultural. I can only imagine driving through the countryside and the beauty that I would be able to take in.

I think this would be a fabulous trip only more enhanced by taking amazing pictures of it, thanks to The Great Courses.
