“It’s one thing to come back with great stories from your travels, it’s even better to come back with the pictures to back them up.”
National Geographic photographer Mark Thiessen shares tips, tricks, and techniques to help you take better pictures on your next adventure with this great multimedia tutorial. Even though Mark is still a film guy, the principles should apply to digital shooters nicely.
As a side note, Great Falls National Park (where Mark took his illustration photos) is a great place to have fun with photography. You will have chances to see canoers/kayakers, rock climbers, hikers, wildlife, and landscapes.
