Finally after a long hiatus from travel photography due to my dear friend Chet’s bout with Leukemia, I am off to a tiny island off the coast of Maine to see what I will find.
For those of you who know me, I am traveling lighter than I usually do since night photography requires less gear for me to carry. This trip is not night photography specific, so I have a little more stuff with me. I am taking my 5dMkII with 3 lenses, a Canon Rebel T2i which is a beautiful 18 megapixel small frame camera for telephoto and it’s accompanying 75-300 IS zoom. I am also taking a small Infrared camera, a converted S95.
This camera produces some wonderful images as long as you know what it’s limitations are. Like the infrared image below, simple but very beautiful images in Infrared are easy to capture and with a little work on the computer they can be wonderfully rich and beautiful.
The weather report calls for nice weather until the middle of the week when we might get thunder storms. Usually that’s not a problem as I have been photographing in weather all my life.
I will be posting regularly, as long as internet service holds out.
