WASHINGTON — National Geographic magazine is renowned for its beautiful photos of landscapes, wildlife and local culture around the world.

Now, the magazine is inviting the public to submit pictures to the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest until June 30, with finalists judged by one of National Geographic’s best photographers, Jim Richardson.

Consider trying these techniques from Richardson:

→→If water is in your shot, try to get a reflection. Bring the camera right down to water level (but still dry) where the reflections are most symmetrical.

→Look for ways to frame the photo as you set up your picture: Doorways, arches, branches, rock formations.

→Don’t rely on your zoom lens. Use your feet to get closer to the subject, or find a better angle.

For contest information, go online to www.nationalgeographic.com/lithium.
