Picture of the day: The best camera in the world is the one that you have with you…

Is a quote from the famous photographer Chase Jarvis. And when I ask a lot of photographers all seems to agree that the important thing is to “get the shot”.  Todays image is of a hawk from Galapagos. We where going snorkeling, and I could only bring my waterproof GoPRO with my wetsuit, and these magnificent birds was all around. Our guide was a bit afraid that we where going to get a little to close, since they are prone to attack if they feel like it, but I just had to try to get a shot. So I tried to line up for my shot. Crawling on my knees, trying to make my presence known for the bird without spooking it, and with my GoPRO that have no screen so that I could try to compose the image, and no settings that I could alter, I tried to get a decent shot.  And I did, of course I should wish that I could have brought my DSLR, but that was not an option at the time. But most importantly. I got the shot.

Whats in my camera bag …. when I am going to octoberfest in Münic, Germany

 

Hi

I thought I was going to do a little bit different post today, and telling a little about what I am planning to bring of camera equipment when I am going to Germany in a couple of weeks.

There are some small things to consider , and you will find how I am thinking about it in the YouTube video at the end of the post.

0. Preparation

The name of the game is People and Places, so my gear resembles that. I will bring one wide angle, and one short telephoto for my DSLR, and a fixt 35 mm Fuji for the standard street photography stuff.

So here is the listing of the equipment that I talk about in the video.

1. The bag
