Google Science Fair3,139,969*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.

In eastern China, there is a mountain range called Huangshan, an otherworldly place where jagged granite peaks are shrouded in mist and pine trees grow out of the rock.

The mountains have been immortalized by centuries of Chinese painters who were inspired by the mystical landscape. To this day, the mountains continue to inspire painters, poets, writers, film makers and even photographers like me. I have always wanted to visit the Yellow Mountains of China and when something has been on your bucket list for a long time, it’s always an especially profound moment when you finally see it with your own eyes.

Huangshan Mountains
I stayed at a hotel on the top of the mountain for a couple of days so I would have opportunities for sunrise and sunset shots, and I was rewarded!

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!

Gold Butte National Monument – Nevada’s Piece of the Grand Canyon
One of my favourite photography spots in Nevada has recently become one of the USA’s newest National Monuments: Gold Butte National Monument. It’s not hard to see why. It covers almost 300,000 acres of the Mojave Desert and it’s the only place I have been where you can see rock striped with all the colours of the rainbow and Joshua Trees at the same time.

Advanced Shooting Modes: What They Are and When to Use Them
Are you ready to get off Auto? When most people get started in digital photography, the first thing they do is set the shooting mode dial on the top of the camera to Auto. It makes sense to let the camera make decisions about things while you’re just getting used to using it.

In Auto mode, the camera makes decisions not only on the Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO but also on many other factors such as White Balance, Focus Mode, Focus Points and Metering Mode.

After awhile, you might start to choose one of the automatic scene modes such as portrait, sports, landscape or night, if your camera has those options. This gives the camera a bit more information about what you’re shooting so it can make better decisions for you.

Dolphin Watching in Discovery Passage, British Columbia
I love exploring the local waters on my little boat, Snoopy, during my summers on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

There’s nothing better than combining my love for the ocean with my love for photography by going out on the water and looking for some wildlife to photograph.

Hongcun, China
Famous for its Ming and Qing architecture, Hongcun sits at the base of the Huangshan Mountains.

When I arrived, there were dozens of art students lining the paths painting the scene in a variety of different styles. It was fascinating to see all the different interpretations and styles of painting. They were so good! I was so enthralled with seeing all the paintings, that I almost forgot to photograph!

Huangshan - The Yellow Mountains of China
The fog became thick after the sun rose and I was delighted to see before my eyes the composition I was hoping for. I adore the layers of mountains and trees with the fog in between. This, to me, captures the mysterious nature of Huangshan that I had always appreciated in Chinese paintings.

Huangshan - The Yellow Mountains of China
I stayed at a hotel on the top of the Huangshan Mountains for a couple of days so I would have opportunities for sunrise and sunset shots, and I was rewarded!

In the morning, I made my way to my sunrise spot in the dark with my headlamp illuminating the way. Not only was it dark, but it was quiet. A stark contrast from the day before when thousands of Chinese tourists made a thunderous roar intermingled with the tour guides screeching on their microphones. But at 5am, there were only a dozen or so people nearby.

Crested Cranes in Flight at Ngorongoro Crater Tanzania
There are so many large animals that some of the smaller animals take a back seat at first until you start becoming acclimated to the place. Then, it’s the combination of animals that becomes awe inspiring.

The day I arrived on the Huangshan mountains, a storm had just passed through leaving behind the fog and mist I was hoping for. I didn’t realize it at the time, but when I got drenched in the rain in Shanghai, that very storm created the magical moments I later experienced in the Yellow Mountains.

The Huangshan mountains are named after the legendary Chinese Emperor Huang Di, the Yellow Emperor, who is the ancestor of all Han Chinese. According to legend, the beloved Emperor was a disciple of Taoist masters who sought to make immortality pills and believed that the best place to make them was in the mountains where the spirit world was near. After travelling throughout China, they chose a place then known as Yishan to make the pills. There, the Yellow Emperor took the immortality pill and road off to heaven on the back of a dragon.

In eastern China, there is a mountain range called Huangshan, an otherworldly place where jagged granite peaks are shrouded in mist and pine trees grow out of the rock.

The mountains have been immortalized by centuries of Chinese painters who were inspired by the mystical landscape. To this day, the mountains continue to inspire painters, poets, writers, film makers and even photographers like me. I have always wanted to visit the Yellow Mountains of China and when something has been on your bucket list for a long time, it’s always an especially profound moment when you finally see it with your own eyes.

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.
