How to Photograph America's National Parks

There's a new edition of AAA's National Park Photography, which I've praised in the past. This time it appears to be sponsored by the National Audubon Society. After flipping through it though, it appears to be the same great book. I'm sure there are some updates here and there. In any case, go get a copy.

At a friend's gallery showing last March, a budding photographer asked me how I find the time to visit so many national parks. I told him the trick is to simply visit one national park each year. It's a reasonable and achievable goal if you can budget your time and money for the year. Maybe you'll get great pictures, maybe it will be cloudy, but at least you can say you were there. Simply being there seems to be largest problem most photographers face.
