A look into travel photography from many angles: from location to light, from time to the challenges of balancing harsh contrasts in both light and context and we’ll talk about how important people can be when you’re out and about in a foreign county to bring home some of the best photography you’ve ever done.
Chris and Monika call in from beautiful Donegal in Ireland where Chris together with Trevor and Ashley did a photo tour with people from all over the world in one of the most amazing landscapes that can be found in Europe. Wild coasts, beautiful beaches, high cliffs, sea arches and the most mesmerizing light. Join in as they discuss some of the details.
Chris and Monika just received the title and the first draft for the book cover from the publisher. And it’s gorgeous. They also discuss packing for Donegal, Ireland for a two-week tour starting early tomorrow morning.
Today Chris talks about liquid ISO – how the same film can be treated with different amounts of light and still produce results, most of the time more exciting results as if used at box speed. Sina Farhat is our guest, talking about doing aerial photography from a helicopter over Gothenburg for Wikimedia. Also: another chapter of C.J. Chilver’s book A Lesser Photographer.
Chris talks to to Philip Briggs (Author of the Bradt Guide to Ethiopia), Trevor Cole (world traveler and photographer extraordinaire) and Hans van der Haar (Dutch tour operator with a family in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia) about their views of Ethiopia. Some great surprises in this interview.
“..the other thing that people don’t expect and that blew my mind is that it’s a lush, green country. Addis Ababa gets twice as much rainfall as London or Amsterdam…” – Philip Briggs
