Flattest Camera in the West
Tune in tomorrow, April14, at 11 am MT for Talon's Tips and Tales on KMRD.FM/Listen
for some hot tips on using you phone camera.  Several years ago while working on a commercial photography assignment I was asked a question which has stuck with me ever since. The question? What’s in your tool kit? In other words, what do you need to get the job done? A camera is a tool, and a powerful one at that.  It’s not so much about the camera, but how it’s used. Good photographs require the photographer to slow down, see, and personally express the world in front of them.  How do you do this traveling on a motorcycle? The answer is simple. Keep it simple. Travel light.  A basic set of tools can generally meet most challenges you may encounter on the road.  Chances are the phone you carry comes with a pretty good camera. Here are a few tips for using your phone camera to capture your next ride.
