When Ford Cochran, National Geographic Blog Wild editor, asks Nat Geo photographer Tim Greenleaf for some advice, here's what he has to say:
When I stopped by his office this morning to pick it up, he asked if I'd seen this photo he shot in view of Mount Kilimanjaro during a visit to Kenya's Amboseli National Park.
"Photography rule number one," he admonished. "Don't forget to look behind you!"
In fairness, Tim noted that the photographer and videographer above might have been filming, say, Amboseli's deeply endangered lions rather than the elephants. But still.
