Google Science Fair3,135,653*The Science of Photography* Digital photography offers amazing flexibility to capture and modify images. But how does the science of photography actually work? What are the basic principles of light, and how do they affect how photographers shoot? How do different cameras and lenses capture images differently? And how do software tools change the way those images are ultimately viewed? Come to this Hangout On Air with +Trey Ratcliff, the world-class photographer whose work is displayed at StuckInCustoms.com. He will be interviewed by +Robert Scoble, well-known blogger, technology analyst, and amateur photographer, as well as our very own Google Student Ambassadors.

Sandhill Cranes at Whitewater Draw, Arizona
There’s only one thing I can think of that is better than exploring and finding beautiful new places, and that is exploring and finding beautiful new places that have excellent wildlife photography opportunities!

Khutzemateen Provincial Park, BC

I'm absolutely thrilled that one of my favourite photos from Huangshan, China, has been selected as a semi-finalist in the 2017 Nature's Best Photography Windland Smith Rice International Awards! This is especially rewarding for me given that this is my "new life" living my dream, following my passion, and doing what I love. Thank you to all of you who have encouraged me to pursue it!

Humpback Whales at Copper Cliffs
Quadra Island lies just across Discovery Passage from Campbell River, British Columbia, and on it is a very special location known as Copper Cliffs.

It’s actually a famous diving location. But I’ve never been diving. On board my boat, Snoopy, the brightly coloured cliffs stand out like someone spilled a box of crayons that melted in the sun. The minerals in the rock have stained it like a rainbow.

Much as the divers like to look at all the sea creatures that live beneath the waterline, it must be pretty interesting for whales too. One day I came across a humpback whale and her calf who were also exploring the area.

Zebras in the Serengeti
In Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, where the vast plains meet the sky, it first seems unlikely that there could be as many animals as I’ve heard about. After all, it’s so flat, wouldn’t I be able to see them?

As I bumped along the dirt road, a warm breeze on my face, I could think only of the endless sky and endless grasses and wonder, where are they?

But soon enough, as I discovered a small tree, or a rock outcropping, or a watering hole, I realized they are everywhere!

I’ve been doing a lot of practicing with my new camera (more coming up on that soon) and realized that I have quite a collection of photographs of Larry, our local swan. He’s a wonderful study in both swan behaviour and photography as I try to get to get different photographs of the same bird in the same location.

5 Surprising Habits That Will Make You a Better Photographer
When you’re learning photography, it seems natural to pay the most attention to the gear and techniques you use to create images.

Ice on the black sand beach in Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon, Iceland.

It was rainy and windy and cold, but worth it! I was so excited to finally be at this incredible location that I totally forgot to protect my Sony mirrorless camera from the rain for the first 10 minutes I was out there. I’m happy to report that it got absolutely drenched and still worked fine afterwards.

Sandhill Cranes at Whitewater Draw, Arizona

This photo is my favourite of all the photos I made of the cranes. I just love the minimalist feel to the shot and how the tips of their wings are just barely above the water as the fog lifts.

Getting the boat ready for the season and looking forward to doing some serious exploring! This is a cool spot I discovered last year somewhere around Quadra Island. I wonder if I'll be able to find it again this year? It was on a small island. I could easily spend the whole summer right there!

Huangshan – The Yellow Mountains of China
For most of that day, after sunrise, the clouds completely hid everything from view. I was so glad I went up the day before! At sunset, while the fog was still thick, I managed to get one final shot.

For most of that day, after sunrise, the clouds completely hid everything from view. I was so glad I went up the day before! At sunset, while the fog was still thick, I managed to get one final shot.

I'm happy to be back in Campbell River, British Columbia, for the summer. We have our awesome spot that backs onto the estuary. And tonight we received an incredible surprise. Opening the door to let Angie out before bedtime, there was Larry!! Right at the door!!! Like he was waiting for us to come out. I didn't want to leave to go get my camera, plus it was dark anyway, so I just enjoyed the moment. When I knelt down, he took a step closer and for a second I thought he might just come right up the stairs. He even said a few words :) Here's a photo of Larry from last year. It turned out to be one of my favourites!

Buffalo Horns in Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania
At one place where we stopped, there were no lions in the area, which meant we could get out and stretch our legs a bit and I found these wonderfully preserved buffalo horns.

McWay Falls, California
One of my favourite stops on the Big Sur drive was at Julia Burns Pfieffer State Park where we looked down at McWay Falls. What a pretty little spot! I'd love to spend more time exploring this beach.

Weston Beach, Point Lobos, California
During my day trip to Big Sur, one place I absolutely had to see was Point Lobos State Natural Reserve and specifically Weston Beach. Named for photographer Edward Weston whose portfolio was full of stunning photos from this area, Weston Beach has the most interesting formations of sedimentary rock with colourful pebbles that are wonderful subjects for abstract images.

Day Trip to Big Sur California
Since we started travelling in the RV 6 years ago, Ray and I have become “bushed”. It’s a term my mother used for people who spent too much time in the bush and can’t handle being around other people anymore. We spend a lot of our time out in the desert, not in the bush, but often completely on our own, so I think the term still applies.

We love the wilderness and quiet places. We avoid crowded places and cities as much as possible.

But sometimes we have to make exceptions, bite the bullet, take a deep breath and go forth into the crowd for extraordinary places. One of those places was Big Sur, California.

How to Photograph in the Harsh Midday Sun
It’s all about the light! The golden hour when the sun is just above the horizon shining its low angle golden rays on the scene; sunrise and sunset when the clouds light up pink, orange, and red; and the blue hour when the sun is below the horizon but it is not yet totally dark. Those are the best times to photograph.

But midday? That’s when tourists make snap-shots, right?

Well, yes, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t options for you too. You just have to know what to do when the sun is high in the sky shining its harshest light on a day with no clouds to soften the rays.

China's Terracotta Warriors
The day after my mother died, I found myself in a very strange place – the Mausoleum of the First Emperor of China. How odd to be looking at the faces of thousands of warriors who would protect the Emperor on his journey to the afterlife on the very day when I would be contemplating my mother’s same journey.

It was odd to be out photographing at all, but the photographers I was travelling with convinced me that my mother wouldn’t want me to miss the greatest archeological discovery in modern times. And while seeing the terracotta warriors was never high on my bucket list, the concurrence of the two events created an unforgettable experience.

5 Focusing Mistakes To Avoid
One of the questions I get asked most frequently is “how can I get sharper photos?” There are many reasons why a photo might not be as sharp as you’d like, making the problem difficult to diagnose.

The best place to start is to make sure you understand how your camera’s focus settings work and when to use them so you can avoid these common focusing mistakes.

Great Blue Heron Abstract
One of the things I love about the estuary in Campbell River, British Columbia, is all the birds that frequent the campground. Every day there are eagles, herons, geese and all sorts of small birds, so I get lots of practice with my bird photography. Looking forward to being back there next month!
