    ...How To Photograph In The Grand Teton NP
    by Terry Long (forum contributor)

    Learn about the places to go, how to get there and how to photograph Grand Teton NP. This article gives you all the information that you might need on your journey through Grand Teton National OE 
Digital Photography © Outdoor Eyes Park. Terry researched before he left and this a story about his trip. "The visit to the Grand Teton NP was a fantastic adventure. I couldn't have asked for a better companion than Sam (my dog). She was so good while there. I met quite a few fellow photographers and learned from some of their experiences. I hope I was able to share a little of my knowledge with them, too. I had been looking to visit the Tetons for quite some time and can now say I've been there and back."  Top

    ...The Use Of A Laser Pointer To Focus
    by Ed Jeavons (forum contributor)

    A creative method from Ed regarding the use of a laser pointer to focus in dim light situations. For those that have never heard of using a laser pointer with your camera before, it is a way that OE Digital Photography © Outdoor Eyes some people have found to help their camera focus on a subject when the ambient light is too dim for the camera to do it on its own. Those with focus assist lamps or a manual focus facility can often get around this problem, but many users who don’t have these are stuck with blurry photos! Using a laser pointer with a patterned head, you can shine a bright image onto the subject and give the camera something to lock onto.  Top

    From The Editor
    Regain Your Youth

    Just recently, a new member joined the forum. He chose his name as New Beginner as his parents had just OE Digital Photography © Outdoor Eyes bought him a new digital camera. He came on the forum like a flash as he did not have the old age blockers that seem to creep up on us all as we become older in age... too strenuous, too difficult, too long a trip... too EMBARRASSING, too... too... He wanted to learn about photography and no question he asked was too embarrassing or no photograph he posted was too embarrassing. Everyone on the forum realized his enthusiasm and was willing to offer advice. Remember when you were youthful and didn't really have any comprehension of the word EMBARRASSING to stop the progress of learning? Everything was new and exciting. If you have forgotten how to really learn and experience, try to remember that feeling of your youth and it will all come back to you.  Top
