GovTV: Out-of-this-world photography tips

Other agencies could be forgiven for NASA envy -- the space agency not only has sexy missions and worldwide name recognition, but also a seemingly endless supply of beautiful imagery to help illustrate its work.

Those images don't come easily, however.  As three astronauts explain in the video below, it takes special equipment -- not to mention some old-fashioned photography skills -- to shoot in space.  The silver lining:  That massive camera isn't nearly so heavy when in orbit.

Got an agency video you think should be on GovTV? Please let us know via Twitter: @FCWNow.
