Google Science Fair3,141,429*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. Here's your chance to learn about the science behind those amazing images. Have questions for our guests? Post comments on Google+ with #GSF2013.

Bull Elephant at Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania
Although I’m sure there were many more elephants there, we only saw this one lonely bull elephant the whole time. He’s blowing a bit of dust to protect himself from insects and the sun.

Planning your next Photography Adventure
Planning a photography adventure can sometimes be a little intimidating. It can be a big investment in both time and money – what if you don’t get the shots? You don’t want to come home disappointed. Fortunately, there are many things you can do ahead of time to prepare for your trip and ensure you get the best photos possible. Don’t rely on luck!

Many things need to come together in order to make a great photograph. There’s a lot more to it than showing up with your camera in hand. Creating a timeless image has as much to do with the work that went in to the photograph long before the shutter was pressed as it has to do with what happened on the scene.

Nesting Cormorants on Mitlenatch Island
Looking at my marine chart for the area around Campbell River, BC, I noticed a small island that is marked as a provincial park: Mitlenatch Island Nature Provincial Park. So without any further information than what was on my chart, I headed over there in Snoopy, my little power boat, to see what makes it special.

Cibola National Wildlife Refuge

Explorer. I think I’ll have to add it to my tagline. I’m happiest when I’m out there looking for new things, new places, new experiences. I’m walking across the desert looking down at the colourful rocks at my feet, looking across to the mountains in the distance, looking up to the birds flying above. Always waiting for the moment I hear something whisper to me “psssst … hey … over here …,” it’s my next photo calling me.

I know it doesn’t exist until I create it, but it seems to call me, not the other way around.

The exploring usually begins with a map where I look for nearby wild places – green areas where protected lands breathe, where the silence creates a peacefulness inside me, and where the sounds of wildlife awaken and call me.

My latest discovery is Cibola National Wildlife Refuge on the border between California and Arizona. It’s a desert oasis where the floodplain of the lower Colorado River provides critical wetlands for thousands of migratory birds making their way on the pacific flyway. Not only did it look like a beautiful place, but with a little research Ray and I discovered there is some BLM land right across the street where we could dry camp for free. What more could you ask? A beautiful landscape, great hiking, wildlife and free camping!

The Bund Tunnel, Shanghai, China
On my second evening in Shanghai, I went over to the other side of the Huangpu River to try some night photography at Shanghai Tower. To get across the river, I took the Bund Tunnel, which is quite the psychedelic experience! After hopping on a rail car, I was bombarded with a pulsing neon light show and apocalyptic sound effects that made me wonder if I was on some kind of colourful trip to hell! It’s only a 5 minute ride to the other side after which I emerged thinking “wtf was that?”

Yuyuan Tourist Mart, Shanghai, China
I took a bus tour through the city and got off at Yu Garden. But I realized afterwards that what I saw was not the garden, but Yuyuan Tourist Mart, a collection of shops. I enjoyed the traditional architecture, but somehow I missed the entrance to the actual garden!

5 Common Post-Processing Mistakes to Avoid
For today’s photographer, post-processing is a critical element of image making. Sure, when you first get started with digital photography, you might shoot in JPG mode and allow the camera to make decisions about things like color and contrast. But when you’re ready to take control of your images, it’s time to shoot in RAW format and make the important decisions about how you want your final image to look yourself.

When you first start shooting in RAW, you might think your images look a bit gray and bland. That’s because the decisions that the camera was making before are now left up to you. That can be a bit daunting! But here are some tips to help you avoid the most common post-processing mistakes and make sure you are helping your images and not hurting them.

Giraffe in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
With the vast open plains of golden grasses and big blue skies, the central Serengeti creates a minimalist background like no other place I have been to. In fact, the word serengeti means “endless plains” and at over 14,000 square kilometers the plains do seem to go on forever.

Book Review - Treasured Lands: A Photographic Odyssey Through America's National Parks by QT (Tuan) Luong
I have just read what is now my favourite book on photographing the National Parks -- Treasured Lands: A Photographic Odyssey Through America's National Parks by QT Luong.

QT's relentless perseverance in his quest to explore all the national parks, to discover the locations and light conditions that are essential ingredients in his images, will now benefit all the photographers who follow in his footsteps. It's a valuable source of information for any photographer who is interested in the National Parks.

Last week I shared with you my Top 10 Landscape Photos of 2016. As you probably know, I love my wildlife photography too, so now I have my favourite wildlife photos from last year to share with you.

I didn’t do any special wildlife trips last year, so 8 of the 10 images were made during my summer on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Some of the images are from the shore, but many of them I made while on my little boat Snoopy. I love boating as much as photography, so combining those two passions is a real treat.

Here are my top 10 wildlife photos of 2016:

I wasn’t going to write this post. 2016 was a pretty shitty year for me. I didn’t actually spend that much time photographing, so I didn’t think I would have 10 good shots to show for myself.

But, in an effort to find light in the darkness, to find a glimmer of hope, and perhaps discover that not everything was bad, I decided to take a look through my archives and see what I could find. Maybe not 10 but maybe I would find something worthwhile.

Much to my surprise I did find 10. More than that, I found 10 landscape images and 10 wildlife images that I really like and am proud of.

That just proves to me, once again, that photography helps me find the good in the sea of bad.

I hope that if you had a bad year, you’ll take a few minutes to look back and try to find the good moments to remember. It’s too easy to let all the bad things take over until it feelslike that... more »

It’s too easy to let all the bad things take over until it feels like that’s all there was. It’s not true. There are good things in the world, we just have to put more effort into finding them and remembering them.

Zebras at the Watering Hole
Arriving on the scene, there were hundreds of zebras! Around 30 or so at the watering hole and hundreds more milling about in the area. It was amazing how I could hear every footstep, the breathing, and snorting as the zebras moved all around us. At the watering hole, the zebras lined up for a drink with a few keeping watch.

Wildlife Photography in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
When I first saw the Serengeti I was struck by how plain and flat it looked. It was so flat that I thought it wasn’t possible for there to be so many animals there.

Wandering into a Bighorn Ram
I like to wander. In fact, I think wandering is one of my favourite things to do! Sometimes I am keeping my eye out for something specific – and other times I try to keep an open mind and see what nature has in store for me.

Bull Elephant at Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania
Although I’m sure there were many more elephants there, we only saw this one lonely bull elephant the whole time. He’s blowing a bit of dust to protect himself from insects and the sun.

White Pelicans at the Salton Sea, California
The best thing about RVing is the changing scenery. Every time we move, I get a brand new back yard to look at, a new sunrise to enjoy, and a new place to relax for happy hour.

The cape buffalo also number in the thousands. This one has a small oxpecker on his back. The oxpecker feeds exclusively on the backs of large mammals, cleaning them of ticks and other insects.

Lion Cubs in Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania
On a warm sunny African afternoon in Ngorongoro Crater, most of the animals have had their morning feed and are ready for a nice rest in the shade.

Being the kings and queens of all the animals, the lions certainly have no problem lying flat out in the open for a big sleep without a concern in the world.
