There is a lot to think about when heading out for a trip, and when packing it is important to think about: “How am I going to document my trip?” Below I have brought up a few key issues and thoughts when traveling with your DSLR camera.   How am I going to keep my camera safe, dry, and protected? My first rule of thumb is to keep my camera with me at all times. That means when I am going through airports or traveling in a taxi, car, bus, or train. My other problem is I carry a laptop with me, so I want to be sure I have that with me also. That is why I got a Think Tank Backpack. This allows me to be able to carry everything important in one bag including my laptop and camera, plus all my accessories. I carry this on the plane with me so that it never goes out of my sight and is not at risk of being damaged.   How many memory cards should I take and how many batteries? I travel with two 32gb Class 10 cards (Class 10 means fast speed for video). Before you start shooting...
I have done extensive traveling around the world working with a nonprofit telling stories through video and photo including, Kenya, Dubai, Dominican Republic, Philippines, Cambodia, Honduras, Bolivia and other areas. During my travels, I have noticed that many travelers in an area that is new to them often have trouble taking the best photos possible of their new experiences. Seeing this in others made me want to come up with a list of tips when traveling internationally that will hopefully make you be a better photographer while staying safe and having fun! Here are my top 10 tips for taking international photos: Use a camera you are familiar with.  You’ll already know the little tricks to use in order to get the best shot Ask people before taking their picture (for close range photos). Be polite! Most people will say yes, but some may not want a photo taken and deserve to have this right respected. Log your location so you remember what you are taking pictures of. Take a small Moleskine Notebook to help you jot notes down. Take time to look around and take in the experience without the camera in your hand. Try and tell the story as...
When I’m camping or hanging out outside at nighttime, I love being able to capture my views on camera.  However, nighttime photography can be extremely tricky. Here is a how-to guide to nighttime photography when using a DSLR camera.  My camera of choice is a Canon 6D because it is a full-frame camera and offers a WiFi feature, which is convenient for photo transfer and remote shooting.  Another camera I recommend is the Canon T3i, which is more reasonably priced.  This is a great camera if you are on a budget or just getting started with photography. To get started, here are some basic items you need to shoot at night: Camera and lens (Get some sort of wide-angle lens) Tripod Remote trigger (or in the case of the 6D, just a phone!) A fully charged battery Memory card After you have you camera turned on and memory card in, follow these steps to begin shooting at night!  The ideal setting is a starry night when the moon is out.  For these directions, have the camera on “manual” shooting mode.   Step One: Find a spot that has a clearing so you can see at least part of the sky.   Step...
