Geared toward the adventurous photographer, The Wild Side of Photography provides a rich source of ideas and inspiration for fun projects ranging from clever to unconventional.

Get ready to capture the perfect aerial shot on your next commercial flight, and to paint beautiful night scenes using a flashlight as a lightbrush.
