If the NRA taught travel photography….

Don't click this, it's just a screen grab!

….they couldn’t do any better than Geographic shooters, and all around wags, Cary Wolinsky and Bob Caputo did in this short piece.  Talk about being shot out of a cannon (that’s cannon with two “n’s”), they launched their new blog, Pix Boom Bah, with this wacky video.

The site looks like a place where humor and high production values will help teach basic photography concepts, served up by these two veteran Geographic shooters (and fledgling standup comedians!). Finally, photography has its own mini Monty Python troupe!

    The 4 rules of camera safety:

    1. Treat all cameras as if unloaded. Never assume your camera has a memory card and battery.
    2. Don’t point your camera at anything you don’t wish to include in the composition.
    3. Keep your finger off the shutter until your photo is properly composed.
    4. Know your subject, and the background.

    Anything worth shooting, is worth shooting twice.

    A Canon S90 in the pocket beats the D300s you left in the police cruiser.

    Just got back from Cusco, Peru. You get to hold the baby lamb, pet the Llama, snap a photo and then pay up. At least you know going into it what it takes to get the shot. I did have a drunken shopkeeper with a weapon chase me in Shanghai when I took an unauthorized photo. In Uganda, holding a machete and shaking their head, generally means no photo. I didn’t try to find out. My grandkids are the best subjects.

      Mike: And your grandkids, in theory, have to take direction from you too. Best of all worlds! Bob
