When I started the Nature Photography Show just over a year ago the thought of sponsors coming aboard to help out didn't even enter my thought. Yet here we are picking up our second one. Lensrentals has provided the Nature Photography Show with an affiliate link so when it's time to rent your next camera or lens just do so through the link provided on our sponsors page.
The Grand Teton National Park for lack of better words is well... grand. The peaks jut straight up out of a relatively flat area allowing for pristine views of the Grand Teton portion of the Rocky Mountains. One of the most iconic images of the Tetons comes from Ansel Adams at the Snake River Overlook. This image is one of many which have inspired photographers young and old. Snake River Overlook is one of the many places we will visit as we chase the light.
Well, I thought for sure I would write an article every day while shooting here in the Grand Teton National Park. Turns out exhaustion is a real thing for Nature Photographers. The latest I have slept here is 4am with the earliest at 2am so please forgive me for the lack of writing. Trust me, there is so much on the way.
Thought you might want to see what is in the bag I am taking to the Grand Teton National Park this coming week. If you have any questions ask in the comments below.
Critters are most active in the early morning or late evening. It's as if they have no respect for photographers who want to photograph them. Seriously, the nerve of these animals.... Anyway, in order to photograph them when they are active you have to shoot in some pretty low light situations. Here you will find some suggestions on how to make the best of what nature provides you.
When you first arrive at a photo location what do you do? Do you immediately take out your tripod, fully extend the legs, and put your camera on the head in the landscape position? If you do all these things (and I am guilty too) then you are limiting your creativity.
