Vacation photos are the most fun.  You get to spend time with people you enjoy being with (usually...) AND take your camera.  This is a long video, I know, but its packed with great info on how to improve your photos as well as making your trip hassle free for everyone else.  The last thing you want to do is upset everyone else because you want to take pictures then have them pissed at you the rest of the vacation.

Check out the video and photos after the break.

Great video Greg! Your bag must be really heavy even after packing in just the "1st level" of equipment.

This video brought back some great memories! I spent 2 months in Vegas with a D7000, and walked away with some great shots. Red Rock and the Hoover Dam are definitely awesome locations. Thanks for the video!

Wow @ the sky and clouds in those first 30 or so pictures. Couldn't ask for any better, could you? Great shots.

Great video Greg! I actually bought an 11 inch netbook to take on vacation in place of a larger laptop. Great for downloading your days worth of photos onto, email, internet, etc. Much lighter for travel, yet powerful. Keep up the great work.

Love the videos! Quick question Greg, do you own a compact point & shoot, or not worth the grief when a great picture presents on vacation and you capture it on a tiny 1/3 sensor!

Great video G and lots of good composition tips! I uploaded some of the pics I took of Red Rock Canyon to flickr and facebook but it was foggy and rainy. Gave a good ambiance but I love those blue skies and puffy white clouds. Oh btw that b&w photo you took (the one were you said you didn't like it at first) AWESOME AWESOME pic! That's my favorite. Talk to you later.

I have one but don't use it on anything I really care about. They have too many limitations...

nice video, Greg! pictures are too good!

i would like to share my latest experience with my new camera bag which i recently purchased. Its summer vacation here and traveling is going to be more frequent but mostly short trips hence i was looking for small camera bag which can carry few gears safely & anonymously so crampler messenger boy 4000. it can accommodate sigma 70-300 f4.5, tamron 17-50 f2.8, memory cards, additional AA battery (probably bc700 charger or flash too), filters, passport, few papers & pentax k-x (with any of these lens attached. It feels really comfortable and its fast to access camera anytime. Only thing i miss is the camera stand.

Have you ever had an issue traveling with a monopod? Homeland security wanted to take mine when re-entering the US because it had a point on the end.

No...but next time you can probably avoid it by packing in your checked luggage.

Another great video, Greg. I am learning so much from this site. Did you take any picture of the Bellagio fountain? If you did what are the key factors in taking such picture?
