Happy Weekend my friends !! I found myself in a mountain of photo equipment yesterday, as some rentals have started coming in early and some new gear arrived as well. I took advantage of this and hung out in Central Park with a photographer friend of mine to test out my Konova slider for the very first time. As you can see in the screen grab below, we had a lot of fun.
There is lots do to before our take-off to Tanzania at the end of the month but my To-Do-List is slowly getting smaller.
The Tanzania visa has been approved and is looking pretty in my passport; I suffered through Typhoid and Tetanus shots (ouch) and anti-malaria pills are ordered. My husband surprised me with Icebreaker shirts (see picture) which are amazing for traveling – they are made from merino wool of happy sheep from New Zealand and are wonderful when you want to travel light. This will come in very handy once I start packing – I have yet to solve the riddle of how to bring all of this photo gear to Tanzania…
Next week I will be doing a test shoot with our producer Cathy Jackman so we can get to know each other a little better and figure out a good workflow before we start shooting in Tanzania. I can’t wait ! This is the first time I will be working with a producer and editor – video is still a new world to me compared to photography, which feels like second nature. But I am thrilled to learn more and get out of my comfort zone. Onwards !
