Awesome advise Parker! Great little bit of info provided here.
Another item I'd ellaborate on is keeping the camera on, and at the ready when you're driving around. I cant count the amount of times I scored a great shot simply by having the camera on my lap, on, and ready to shoot.
So many friends and fellow photographers describe scenes they missed because they were fumbling around behind the seat, or had to pull over to get there camera out and have it ready.
We've been working in Yellowstone all summer, and if I hear it once, I hear it 20 times a day from a park visitor tell me about the shot they missed because their camera was either turned off, or sitting in the back seat while the bear ran right in front of them. While they were reaching for the camera, they not only missed the shot, but they missed even seeing the wildlife because they were too busy fumbling for the camera.
I always tell people while driving, keep the camera on, and keep it in the 'P' mode so you wont have to worry about what setting you have it one. Snap a bunch of shots, and if you have time, make specific adjustments once you already know you have the shot
Again, great info
