Did you see the new "Dark Side of the Moon" video released by NASA? It's a neat video all on its own, but I also think it's a teachable moment. It highlights the importance of perspective for photographers. What I mean is, we've all seen the moon plenty of times…

I can't imagine all the work that goes into a shoot like this, so it's good that on his web site Wilson offers some neat behind-the-scenes videos from various animal shoots.

Brad Wilson is a photographer of animals, though he does his best work in the studio rather than out in the wild. He's just published a beautiful collection of portraits of owls in the Audubon Society's magazine, and they're stunning. Made at the World Bird Sanctuary in St. Louis and…
