Passport Sunday 360 Video

Today, for you awesome Passport Members, I have a new 360 video when I am taking photos in Madagascar!

Exploring Madagascar

While on a 4-hour road trip in Madagascar, we stopped for lunch in some random town. I recorded a quick video here to show you a little bit of what I saw while there. Sorry in advance for the abrupt ending – the battery on the 360 ran out! 🙁

Come to my New Zealand Workshop!

Today, if you’re a Passport Member you get to see a new 360 video from our recent workshop in Africa! We had a ton of fun… and you’ll get to hear a little from some of the guests!

You can see more about what happens on the workshop here.

More from Africa!

A few weeks ago, I shared a 360 video where I talked to a few of the workshop members that joined me in the wilds of Africa. This year you get to hear even more… I think my favorite one was when Phillipa and I were talking and lemurs were jumping all over us! 🙂

(As always with 360 video you can turn the video around while watching.)

Passport Sunday!

We’re in Africa for Passport Sunday this week and in glorious 360 to boot as I chat with some of the lovely people below. This was taken just as we were heading off to another location on part 1 of my Africa photo adventure/workshop.

Delving into the minds of my workshop friends

I’m out in Africa at the moment (probably Madagascar when you’re reading this) running a couple of back to back photography adventures. During the first workshop I grabbed a few of the attendees for a quick chat about what they will take away from the experience. It’s always fun to hear what people pick up on, especially those who’ve joined one of my trips before. (Next up on the workshop front is New Zealand in April… which is fall/autumn in upsidedownland… Come join me!)

Oh, and remember, you can grab the camera view and spin it to look around as you watch. 🙂

Workflow Fun on Passport Sunday!

Well, I try to make workflow as fun as possible today for Passport Members. Today, you see the process I went through before Burning Man to make sure I had a clean library for the event. I did this again before Africa!

Speaking of Burning Man…

Here are a few of my favorite photos for you!

There in the gypsy’s creation.  It pulsed around us like a thick red vein; a timeless conduit that promised to hold a time machine between worlds.  And, I’d have it no other way, as every time machine should come appointed with the comforts of the sultans as they slowly wind throughout the edges of the Orient.  The colored lights cast new tones and shadows upon the rich, supple textures.  Small windows around the edges gave outward portal-glances to worlds and times that whizzed by, each one inviting a new pause to the story.  The light, I noticed, did something unexpected as it tumbled and flowed and rolled across the skin, drifting over small sinuous shapes as the crimson rays slid up and over the flowing curves of a dune in the middle of a faraway desert.  The lines would only stay a moment before the wind blew them into a new form.  The light tore time away from the shapes, and I could not figure out what was happening until much later in the story.

The ground shook and the air crackled as the metal bent and strained around my body.  The screams went animal and blood fell folded back into the sand.

Now on with the show…

Workflow Fun on Passport Sunday!

This is another common question I get: how do I set up different LR Catalogs for the road? Well this shows what I did to set up my catalog for Burning Man this year!

Photo Critiques Part 2

Passport Sunday Critiques

Today, for Passport Members, I have unlocked the 2nd half of the 75 photo critiques from the finalists in our recent contest for the Peak Design Tripod and Goodies. We had over 26,000 entries, and I thought it would be valuable to let you know my thought process as I went through them.

Below are the three winners for the contest:

GRAND JURY WINNER: MARCO TAGLIARINO

Peoples Choice: Harry Colquhoun

Amateur Winner: Robert Gilchrist

Photo Critiques Part 2

Ready for more photo critiques? Well, you’re in the right place. I learn so much by watching other people critique photos, even if I don’t agree with them 100%. It makes me question aesthetics and beauty in many ways. I hope you approach watching my critiques with the same idea!

My Workflow in Toronto!

Speaking of Canada…

I thought I would share three fun photos from Canada. They’re all quite different, but I hope you enjoy!

I looked through the looking glass

And now on with the show…

My Workflow in Toronto!

At a recent art talk, I got many questions about my workflow. This is a fairly “boring” but important thing, so I decided to make a video for you that shows how I do this! Hopefully I keep it upbeat enough so that it is not too boring!

Daily Photo – My First Photo of Toronto

I took this one all the way back in 2013 when I went to Toronto to speak at a travel blogger convention. It was a really fun event, and after the talk, we all went over to Centre Island to take photos of the city. It was a stormy night, as you can see, but I managed to get in a pretty decent photo!
