There are 4 weeks of backpacker holidays on Bali ahead of us. To save weight we travel without Macbook and Co., but with drone and camera equipment.
But what is the most reliable way to back up the files from the SD cards on the way?
For years I have been photographing with heart and soul, but at best I show the photos in our travel blogs. Why not search through my own photo archive and offer pictures for sale on various online portals? The registration is free of charge and with a little luck we generate some income. Definitely better than to let the pictures "rot" isolated on the network storage.
Of course, there is no magic formula for setting the camera, no matter what kind of photos you want to take. Neither is there any ultimate equipment for such jobs. This is also the case with the photography of weddings in churches. Motives and light conditions vary from shooting to shooting. Nevertheless, I usually move with my equipment in a certain setting range, or try to approach the location, motives and light from a certain value. Here I talk about equipment, camera settings and editing.
In 2017 I presented the workflow for scanning photos, slides and negatives with the then top dog Canon CanoScan 9000F Mark II in a video. With the same scanner I digitized about 3000 old pictures and negatives. Meanwhile, the popular scanner is no longer available and some people wonder what alternatives there are now. In this article I followed this question and found an equal successor.
In this article I write about which lights and which arrangement of lights I use for high key or low key photography in my home studio. Besides the construction I also give an overview about the technique I use as an ambitious hobby photographer. Here I report, how I equipped my home "photo studio" for hobby purposes for about 350€.
