We are thrilled and delighted to be going to Antarctica on an 18 day photographic symposium. And we are leaving today! It has been a crazy summer and fall with a tonne of workshops, seminars and our photographers in residence program at Aurum Lodge winding down. And now we end the year with nearly a month in Buenos Aires and Antarctica! Who knows what is next on our crazy year long sabbatical?
We have decided to go light on this trip with just a cropped sensor dSLR and a couple of lenses each. We want to make sure that we spend a lot of time engaged with nature and not distracted by a bunch of camera gear – a light kit will allow us to enjoy our trip of a lifetime and still snap a photo or two if it feels appropriate.
In the meantime we’ll be away from the blog, our email and our oopoomoo Facebook group. We hope you continue to post and interact there shooting for the November theme of backways and alleyways for a chance to win our Photography Fundamentals eBook bundle. While we’re away, we’ll have blog posts scheduled for your reading pleasure. And we’ll still have a December photography challenge to keep things rolling on the Facebook page – watch for the December challenge announced here on the blog (hint: it may have something to do with our upcoming article in Popular Photography on winter abstracts!) It seems we can’t escape shooting snow and ice but now we’ll have penguins in the mix! The prize for December’s challenge winner is a copy of Darwin’s career retrospective, 50 at 50. Thanks to all for your support and participation and most of all inspiration. We’ll talk soon.
