There’s no better time than summer — the air is warm, the sun is shining and vacations are tempting you to explore America. Get out and experience your hometown again — like Adam Richman explores Brooklyn — or stop by Sam, Andrew and Bert’s favorite beaches for a barbecue. While you’re on your great All-American vacation, don’t forget your camera to snap the perfect shot.
If you’re not confident that you have the skills to take The Perfect Shot, join Ghost Adventures’ Aaron Goodwin on this new video web series to learn the craft behind taking the perfect photo. Aaron travels around Las Vegas with professional photographers to learn how to use different cameras, from the professional dSLR to the consumer point-and-shoot to the ubiquitous smartphone.
The photo experts show Aaron various techniques, including getting turned on by food porn with Romona Robbins, taking action photos of skateboarders with Sean Murphy and snapping the perfect landscape shots with Chase McCurdy. With the ever-present smartphone, Aaron learns the secrets to the perfect selfie with Eric Ita as well as tips for architectural photos with Omar Gomez at the Las Vegas Frank Gehry building.
So on your next great summer trip, be sure to bring along your camera and snap away. Don’t forget to share your perfect summer photos with us — our favorites may be featured on TravelChannel.com, on our Instagram account or even in an on-air commercial!
