Now, how do you get to take photos of a Lion without getting eaten or by using a massive 800mm super telephoto zoom lens? You use a remote control car with a camera attached of course, cutely named Beetlecam.
Will Burrard-Lucas and his brother Matt came up with this great idea and have undertaken several trips to Africa to take photos of Lions, elephants, buffalos, you name it!
In April, Nikon is opening a school in London to encourage people to embrace the wonderful world of photography. Ok it's not free, but if you want some top quality hands on training, you could do a lot worse than go to the source - so to speak - and learn from Nikon!
The school is based at Nikon's centre of Excellence near Oxford Circus, in London. Typically course fees are £119+, although they are currently running a £20 discount if you book before May 1st 2013.
Forrest Tanaka has produced an excellent video about astrophotography. So if this is an area of photography you'd like to learn more about, it's a great idea to go through his videos first.
This is the first video in a series which covers telescopes particularly suitable ones to go for. so I'm guessing Forrest will be adding a number of further videos which cover the other aspects of astrophotography.
