Welcome to Creative Live. I'm Chris Nicholson, and I'm gonna be talking about photographing national parks and about preparing to do night photos in the parks. I'm the author of a book called Photographing National Parks. And I'm also a partner and instructor with National Parks at Night, and we're thrilled to be here doing this. So I'm gonna talk about three different things, and this is all about preparation. First we're gonna talk about why the parks are great for photography to begin with. And we're gonna talk about scouting locations and why that's important. And we're also gonna talk about preparing for spending time in the wilderness, both from a safety perspective and for maximizing creative opportunities.
