When I realized that this column would be in the magazine’s lighting focus issue, I looked at the data for the photos I’d taken earlier this year during a nearly month-long combination of safari workshop, assignment, and stock shoot in Africa. What I found surprised me: I’d used flash on about one-third of the 13,000 photos I’d made on that trip. I had no idea I’d used my Speedlights as often as I had.

I think I speak for nearly every photographer when I say going to a new location excites me, especially if it is one I have dreamed about for years. We all dream of these once-in-a-lifetime photo adventures. But the truth is for most photographers, the majority of our shooting is actually done in locations that are closer to home and allow us to return more regularly.

You don’t start off talking about photography when you talk to Paul Edmondson about how he creates his striking fine art landscape images. You talk about what he notices and what he chooses from all that the landscape offers.

The idea of flying above the earth in a craft composed of a wicker basket and a large balloon lifted by heated air and at the mercy of air current and vectors has always been a subject of wonder and fascination. Indeed, it was the first method by which humans went aloft, a sensation witnessed by amazed crowds in Paris way back in 1783. Fast forward 232 years later, and add hundreds of balloons more, and you get a sense of the thrill you can experience at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, held this year from October 3-11 in New Mexico.

The azure blue skies, bright sands and dramatic coastlines of beaches have long been favorite travel photo subjects. These images often appear in travel brochures, calendars and posters, and make us long for vacations in exotic locales. It's easy to capture the beauty of beaches if you keep a few basic concepts in mind.

You've probably seen the photos of these exquisitely sculpted sandstone buttes; like colorful waves set in stone. You may have assumed--as I once did--that this area was part of some out-of-the-way corner of a national park.

 

For a long time, I couldn't find much documentation on this region, nor any information in guidebooks of the...

It wasn’t long ago that I began to notice I had competition—and I’m not talking about other travel photographers.

Each of the major Hawaiian islands--Hawaii, Oahu, Kauai and Maui--has its own unique flavor. Each offers an endless number of photo opportunities, beautiful resorts situated on exotic beaches, balmy weather, and a variety of activities that lure throngs of vacationers from around the globe on a year-round basis.

I recently visited Kauai, which has more of...

Anyone who loves shooting scenics probably enjoys capturing the grandeur of mountains. As with most landscapes, it's best to photograph mountain scenery very late in the afternoon or very early in the morning. Some of the best high-country photos are shot by photographers who get up before daybreak or stop shooting only after dark. You'll find that an otherwise...

If you’re looking for a destination offering unlimited photo opportunities, great history, amazing food, and a bit of debauchery, look no further than New Orleans during Mardi Gras.

There is no place on the bucket lists of more landscape photographers than California’s Yosemite National Park. Nowhere else in the world can a photographer find such a concentration of waterfalls, dramatic rock formations, enormous trees, great light, and easy access shooting. Who hasn’t seen amazing shots of El Capitan and Half Dome and thought, “I need to shoot there someday.”

As a teenager, Glenn Randall got his first 35mm camera to document his rock-climbing excursions, skiing trips, and "outdoor sports in general."

Taking pictures on vacation gives you visual souvenirs of your trip—memories you'll enjoy sharing with family and friends for a long time. When travelling, we experience new cultures and scenery, and tend to view everything with a sense of wonder and adventure. So bring lots of film (or take a...

Cities offer a great diversity of photo opportunities, like architecture, historic landmarks, interesting people, and parks—new subjects can appear around every street corner. It's fun to photograph icons that represent the flavor of the urban spot you're visiting, whether it's chili peppers in...
