All in Travel Photography
The story of Freetown Christiania has been told elsewhere in great detail; although one would be better served if he or she would research more than one source. And the best bet would probably be visiting the place, seeing for yourself and talking to the locals.
It’s time to wrap-up the series that begun a couple of weeks ago, with my conclusion and thoughts about travel gear and methodology.
I returned home with a huge number of keeper photos, many of which will be featured in ongoing projects or dedicated essays. I was also able to upload a lot of them either in previous installments in this blog, and/or social media. In general, everything worked fine and no real issues presented themselves. That said there are always ways to improve things and lessons learned.
Following on the recent travel series, here is a collection of pictures from Copenhagen, Denmark.
Although the time and day of my visit were not the best possible options (weather was almost always overcast with some sporadic showers) I managed to shoot plenty of photos; many of them will find their way to my other street photography projects as well.
Here are some travel photos from and around Malmo. All shot with the Fuji X-Pro2 and X-70 and most of them edited with Snapseed for Android. Especially in the night cityscape/landscape images I chose a more HDR-ish look, just for fun. Enjoy!
Continuing in the series of shooting and working while traveling, here are some of the latest thoughts, ideas and photos.
Admittedly, the main chore while on the road, is archiving, editing and sharing pictures. The perfect condition would be to combine high end capabilities with ultra high mobility; unfortunately this is easier said than done.
In the previous post, I discussed about the infrastructure and logistics part, while shooting on the road. The spirit was that of reduced weight and bulk while travelling, while missing very little in terms of features and flexibility. My aim is to continue in this direction in the actual photographic gear department.
During the following 2-3 weeks, I will be on the road, traveling and shooting in some great European destinations, including Amsterdam, Copenhagen and several cities in Sweden.
I thought of documenting this trip, which will, photographically speaking, include travel photography, street photography (hopefully some street portraits too), shooting at a wedding, possibly work with a model or two and whatever else may feel creative and interesting at any moment.
Following from the latest post, here are some more pictures and thoughts on the late summer roadtrip.
As I mentioned previously, such photographic excursions are a great opportunity to try doing different things. Especially while setting out to the countryside, most people would think landscape, wildlife and, generally, nature-inspired photography. Instead, it's better to think of means of breaking out of a rut and challenging yourself. After all, you are in vacation; it makes no sense keep on doing what you do all year long.
Late during last August, I decided on a short roadtrip (mainly) on the mountains of central Greece. More specifically, in the regional units of Phthiotis and Evrytania, which happen to also be the largest in mainland Greece. Since I actually have relatives in Phthiotis I know and have traveled to these parts quite a bit, so I was able to detail a plan beforehand.
