Macaques Fight for Survival
Photograph by Stefano Unterthiner
A cheeky macaque in Indonesia stole a photographer’s camera and took an image of himself. What came next was a viral storm of interest, delight, and advocacy to protect the rare black-faced monkeys. National Geographic sent photographer Stefano Unterthiner to the island of Sulawesi, where macaques are regularly hunted and prized for meat, to observe the frenzied fight to protect them—and how photography is helping.    |  Look Closer  |

How to Photograph an Elephant

Elephants are big, boisterous, and social. So how do you capture them at their most photogenic? National Geographic’s longtime nature photographer Michael Nichols offers some simple tips. Start by being quiet and patient. Don’t bother shooting with a flash. And when the action starts, let them be the stars of the show.   |  Look Closer  |
Photographer Robbie Shone snapped this selfie in the Baisun-Tau mountain range of Uzbekistan after exploring a high-altitude entrance to Dark Star. Shone was part of an expedition that explored what could be the world’s deepest cave. The story was published in the March issue of National Geographic.

Photographing in a cave requires technical prowess as well as a mastery of climbing and ropes. Having worked previously as a rope-access technician helped Shone get comfortable working at great heights, and depths.

The Classic Cars of Sweden
Photograph by Axel Öberg
National Geographic photographer Axel Öberg was named a winner of the Pictures of the Year International contest this week for a series of images showing how the 1950s never left Sweden. Each summer, young Swedes take their classic cars on parade to reminisce about an era that many remember—or have been told—was great. They also drink, socialize, and show off along the way.   |  Look Closer  |
