The Gorillapod 5k is more than twice as expensive as the 3k. Is it worth the price? Does the 3k get the job done? Aaron has used both tripods in the field and on international travel. See what his experiences are like in India and Amsterdam.
I’m super excited for my new book to come out this month: Jackson Hole Total Eclipse Guide, the Commemorative Official Guidebook. It’s loaded with eclipse photography specifics, safety info, and locations to shoot from. If you want to photograph the eclipse over the Grand Teton, this book has specific locations to shoot from. It has specific locations to be in on August 21, 2017.
Photographing an eclipse is actually pretty dangerous. I partly fried the inside of my D300s during the 2012 partial eclipse. Oops! My Nikon still works but it was a good lesson. It was like looking into a laser beam.
It also explains how to photograph the total eclipse. The difference between shooting a partial and a total eclipse is massive. Your exposure goes from, well, the sun, all the way to starlight in a few seconds. Can you shoot 11 bracketed shots in 2 minutes under pressure? That’s what it takes to capture that corona and the stars.
For the spring Teton Photography Group program, we’re covering photographic composition. It’s the most important aspect of photography, well ahead of exposure and basic camera management. If you don’t know where and how to point your camera, all of the exposure controls in the world won’t help you.
We’re bringing in several professional photographers and artists for this one. Attendees will enjoy speeches from:
Teton Photography Group Symposium Presenters
Each of these speakers brings their own photographic and artistic genre to life. Each is special in their own way, sharing their knowledge with the audience. They’re all worth listening to, as how they view the world will help you better view yours.
The symposium is on Mar 14, 2015, from 830am to 315pm at the Black Box Theater in the Center for the Arts.
Come, enjoy, learn and ask questions. I know I will!

Thanks to Kelly for recording this for me in her Toyota FJ (hence the tin can sound).
