Chris and Monika sit down to discuss some of the more creative sides of travel photography. For example: what can you do to avoid bringing home the same postcard pictures from the same locations that everyone else has already made? And how can you massively increase the value of your travel photos once you’re back home?
Chris talks with videographer Jon Miller of The Rest of Everest about his latest tool to gather amazing footage: a quadrocopter that is capable of carrying motion-stabilized cameras and can fly at the high elevation of Mt. Everest Base Camp. In their discussion Chris and Jon touch on everything form the technology and how to get started with flying one of these for far below $1000, the legalities of commercial drone flying and about the potential for controversy that these flying cameras have with some people.
Chris talks about cameras at 18,000 ft, about cold weather, weak batteries, camera attachment systems, yak poop fires, energy management while hiking, backpack choices, lenses at -4 degrees Fahrhenheit and about how wonderful it is to be able to now get an affordable 256GB USB 3.0 SSD the size of a credit card at far less than $1 per GB.
