Today the idea of limiting the number of photos you take during a photoshoot is… It doesn't make sense. Memory cards are cheap. Storage is cheap. And of course shooting more photos means more opportunities to get something special. Right? Yes. Well, kind of. It’s not as simple as that.
Setting goals during a travel photoshoot, or any photoshoot for that matter is very important. It can really increase your chances of creating amazing images. But, travel photography is so spontaneous sometimes. You might ask “How can I set goals?” You can. You already do. However you should do it more consciously and with more purpose. I’ll tell you why.
I’ve owned DJI drones for about 2 years. I’ve used them pretty intensely in various countries, in different conditions and for a multitude of subjects. I think it's time that I share some of my experiences with drones as travel photographer who's always on the road and tries to carry as little gear as possible.
It’s not often that a camera changes the way that you approach your work, but, without exaggeration this is exactly what happened when I got my hands onto Panasonic Lumix cameras. In large part, this is why I wanted to have a relationship with Panasonic – because I loved what they created.
Post-processing... I’ve written blog posts about it. I’ve made videos and ebooks. I've obviously made one just recently. Post-processing is something that I’m constantly experimenting with. Even today, a decade into focusing much of my energy and attention purely on photography, I still devote a good amount of time to fine-tuning my post-processing techniques.
Many of us are searching for the perfect camera. We're curious about what cameras other photographers are using, in case they have the perfect bit of gear.

There was one comment that brought up a few interesting points. It got me thinking and resulted in this blog post.
