DWIs (Driving While Intoxicated) are bad, but PWDs (Photographing While Driving) can be great!
Have you ever been driving and seen something really cool, but didn’t have the time to stop? Now you don’t have to, because you can take your photos while the car is moving. This tip works during the day or at night and can get you great results.
First off, I would recommend only using your camera if you are the passenger and not the driver, you don’t want to get into an accident or a ticket.
Other than that the idea is pretty simple. Grab your favorite, get in the car and start snapping away. I have found that the Supersampler works especially well for daytime shots while the car is moving. And nighttime can open up a lot of opportunities for any camera with a B setting (I used the Diana F+).
Overall, I am quite happy with my results and I fully plan on keeping my camera close on any drive, because I never know what my cameras might see.
In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.

Speak of South Korea and, chances are, the bustling capital city Seoul and the charming island of Jeju would be the first destinations to come to mind—and for very good reasons. But while these top tourist draws are definitely worth the visit, the rest of the country is dotted with many more gems often unheard of to outsiders. Here are a few of them.
