Tips for getting great photos
- Get inspired! Check out ONDA’s website and the Wild Desert Calendar gallery to get a sense of what ONDA is all about, where we work, and photo form and content ideas.
- Take a variety of shots. Include large-scale landscape images and small-scale shots that focus on details of flora, fauna, landscape textures, hikers, campers, petroglyphs, and other desert wonders.
- Get in touch with ONDA staff for advice on planning a photography trip to Oregon’s wild desert.
- Think natural. Photos of roads, power lines or other signs of permanent human development are unlikely to be selected.
