Putting the Pieces Together, Dream Camera #4

You may recall that a while ago, I decided to start building my ideal perfect “dream camera”!  In fact, I devoted 3 blog posts to it, and you’ve patiently waited for the grand finale, so here it is – what rounds out the list for the ultimate dream camera! Read more

Sun wind and Frost

White Pocket

A short excursion over the weekend took me down to see Rich Charpentier of “The Airstream Chronicles“.  For those of you that follow the blog, you’ll know that Rich has been on the podcast before and we’ve been sharing war stories for a little over a year now about photography.  Well, this last weekend, we got a chance to shoot one of his favorite little haunts, the not-so-well-known “White Pocket” in the dunes.  It was quite the trip…from a windy trip down in a twin propeller plane, to some nice afternoon sun while there on the afternoon Saturday, to frost at night inside our tent!  Yeah, it got pretty cold!  So much so we ditched the tent and went for the warmth of his trusty Titan before shooting some sunrise shots of the morning colors.  Quite a spectacular trip, and while only there for 12 hours of shoot time, I managed to burn off 8 gigs of photos!  I can’t even imagine what a 3 day trip would result in (lots of post process time is my guess).

More to come with the full back story and more photos that are worked up from the trip, but for now, it’s good to be back in a bed with controlled heat and coffee!  Thanks to Rich for the invitation, and be sure to visit his blog for more of the sordid details this coming week over at The Airstream Chronicles!

In other news – the podcast and blog now has an 800 number!  That’s right, you can call in your questions and get them answered right here on the blog, or listen to answers on the podcast.  To call in and have your questions responded to directly from me give it a whirl:  866-809-8663  If you are outside the U.S., I’d recommend Skype for calls as 800 number calls are free from anywhere!  Happy shooting and we’ll see you back here tomorrow, when I’ll for sure have some more details and photos from the trip to White Pocket!
