Great Smoky Mountains

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a wonderful location to experience the outdoors and capture some exquisite photos.  There are many places to visit there like Deep Creek which is a place to go hiking and camping. When hiking, take your camera and take some pictures of things you want see and want to remember for a lifetime.

It is a place to take pictures of not only scenery, but wildlife as well. Bears, deer, turtles, and many more animals to get shots of.  It is better to have a decent digital camera because of the different lightning that may occur in different
parts of the forest. You should also carry a tripod for the longer hikes you take because if your arms get tired and are shaky you can still have a steady picture.     This place is just a great hiking area to take lots of different pictures.

Nature Photography book summary 1

In the first pages I read about the book, it was introducing to how difficult it can be to take shots of wild animals. The author explains what the books intentions are and how it will help take good pictures. Then he starts going into detail about that Nikon and Cannon are the best cameras to use for nature photography because of their ranges. He also explains the different lenses and close up pictures, as well as the lighting exposures. You learn a lot about tripod use and a good way to carry all your equipment with you in a easy manner. The author shows pictures about the stuff he is explaining when he talking about specific lenses or close ups for small or large  animals, as well as landscape. He even has a small part on lens color and even working in the field. He goes into a bit of detail about everything amateurs would need to know to help get themselves started.
