How to Find and Photograph Bears in Yellowstone "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Yellowstone is one of the most visited parks in the United States, and for good reason. Its full of unique thermal features and one of the last great destinations for an abundance of wildlife. Even if you come for the geysers and hot springs, youll want to stay longer and keep coming back for the wildlife. Theres always a new experience, and you never know what might be waiting around the next corner.

Almost unarguably, the most sought-after species to photograph in Yellowstone are the wild grizzlies and black bears. Conservatively estimated, there are around 150 grizzlies inside the official park boundaries, and 700-1,000 in the whole greater Yellowstone ecosystem. Black bears havent been monitored like grizzlies, but they are under study currently. With 466 miles of roads in the park, a person could easily spend a lot of time driving around aimlessly in search of bears. It may seem easy when you see so many bear photos, but some people visit for many years without ever seeing a bear.

This year I kept a record of sightings beginning in April and Ive encountered 68 grizzly bears and 74 black bears. Some of those are the same bears seen on different days, but there are still dozens of unique bears. If you come at the right time of year and follow my recommendations in this article, with little bit of luck you should find yourself a bear!

When to Visit

Without a doubt, spring in Yellowstone is prime time for bears. Spring in the Yellowstone area and spring in the rest of the country are two different things, so Ill clarify. The snow starts melting and bears typically start emerging from hibernation in March and April, but hang around their dens for a while before coming down to the valleys. Roughly any time from April 1st through June 30th is going to be the highest likelihood of finding bears, both black and grizzly. The peak of reported sightings is usually right around May 15th. In summer and early fall bears will move to higher elevations and less accessible areas, though they are still around.

Photographers often have the notion that you have to be out before sunrise and after sunset to find any wildlife, but thats just not true for spring in Yellowstone. Bears are hungry after hibernating for months and some will stay out and visible for 12+ hours a day. They are often found feeding close to the roads where snow melts and grass turns green first. I typically leave with my photography...


This Time-Lapse Shows a Massive Dust Storm Sweeping Across Arizona "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

The 2018 monsoon season has arrived in the American Southwest, and on July 9th, photographer Jesse Watson drove out into the desert to capture some time-lapse stills of an approaching storm. While out, he was met by the largest dust storm he had ever seen.

Watson managed to capture some breathtaking views of the approaching haboob, which he later turned into the beautiful 30-second video above.

I checked my radar late in the afternoon and saw that storms were blowing up and heading my from Gila Bend, Watson writes. My girlfriend was cooking dinner, I ran into the kitchen and said lets go shoot, theres a haboob coming our way! So put the food on hold and jumped in my truck. Drove about an hour east of Yuma until we caught up with the massive wall of dust that was racing towards us.

Once we were upon the haboob, I grabbed my cameras and tripods to roll timelapse until the dust hit us. Then I jumped in my truck and raced ahead of the haboob to repeat the process, leapfrogging all of the way back to Yuma, AZ.

In all, Watson captured 800 photos and drove 200 miles in the course of shooting the photos seen in the video. You can find more of his work on his...


Nikon 500mm f/5.6 Spotted. Its TINY! "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Nikon announced last month that its developing an ultra-portable 500mm f/5.6 PF ED VR lens. Heres a photo of the actual lens as you can see, Nikon wasnt kidding when it said the 500mm lens is ultra-portable.

Moscow-based photojournalist Pavel Bednyakov of the newspaper Izvestia was invited to a Nikon party in Moscow yesterday as FIFA World Cup 2018 is coming to a close.

While there, the Nikon representatives showed off the first samples of the companys new 500mm f/5.6 lens, attached to a D5 DSLR.

The lens features a Phase Fresnel (PF) element in the design that allows the lens to be both light and compact since fewer lens elements are needed.

Despite its 500mm focal length, the lens is small and light enough to use hand-held in a wide variety of situations where a photographer must capture unpredictable and fast-moving subjects, including sporting events and wildlife photography, Nikon said in its announcement last month.

From his short time with the lens, Bednyakov can confirm that Nikons claim isnt misleading.

Its really small and looks like 70-200 f/2.8 with a hood, the photographer tells PetaPixel.

Pricing and availability of the lens have yet to be announced, but given that Nikon is already showing it off to photographers at parties, were guessing its not too far off now.



Is the Hasselblad X1D Field Kit worth $17,000? "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Chelsea and Tony trey to answer this question. My opinion is that its not worth the money. But maybe the soon to be announced X1D-100c will be way more exciting?

THE 4TH OF JULY 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

It was a fantastic 4th of July.  We slept in and skipped the parade.  We made puff-paint shirts.  We abandoned our hot house (our AC unit died a week ago) and swam for the day and then headed to the Miller Manor for the evening.  The Millers started the sweetest tradition of spending Independence Day at their house and we were happy to enjoy it under much better circumstances this time (2 years ago I spent the 4th on the Millers couch in-between IVs).  We realized that between the 8 of us women, we have A LOT of children.  We must be in Utah!
