My Top 5+1 best travel photography Gadgets

My Top 5+1 best travel photography Gadgets

Today is going to be all about gear.

Over the years i been wasting money trying to find the best gear to make my life more practical when i am traveling. All the way from backpacks, passing through cutlery and finishing up in small card reader/adapters.

On my last trip to Porto Covo, i realized that it is possible to carry very minimal gear and still be able to achieve great results. For this small list i will not include Cameras, Drone and my travel Tripod. I am focusing on the smaller gadgets and it should be no surprise by now that i am carrying at least the Fuji X100T every time i go somewhere new.

Between March and July: Paris, Rome and Porto

Between March and July: Paris, Rome and Porto

It has been a while since the last post. I know I said I would give my final thoughts on my trip to Switzerland but I am saving it for another time.

Meanwhile, i have been so busy with work that even if I wanted to write about Switzerland, I couldn't because I have no time. 

Finally, I managed a few minutes to write about my previous months.

Thailand's Portraits

Thailand's Portraits

If you know anything about me and the photography I like to make, you have noticed that I focused only on street photography during my time in Thailand. Sure, i did a few landscapes but nothing like i usually do.

At first, i thought about going to a few locations for landscapes. My idea was to go to the rice fields during sunset but once i realized that it was going to take more time then i wanted i decided to only do street photography and do landscapes from the places i was. Also, i didn't want to carry around my Canon 5D and all the stuff that comes with it. That is why i decided to take only the Fuji X100T with me for this trip.

Bangkok

Bangkok

Back to Bangkok this time for more than a few hours. 

I am not sure what to think about Bangkok. To be honest it has been hard writing about it. I think that in the end, the city didn't captivate me. 

After this post, there are still a few things i want to talk about the photos i made and why i made them. For now, i just want to finish talking about my experiences.

Phi Phi Island

Phi Phi Island

Happy New Year friends. Hope 2018 will be an amazing year for you all.

With that out of the way is time to finish writing about my trip to Thailand. I will be writing today about Phi Phi island and latter about Bangkok.

There is not a lot to talk about Phi Phi Island. Is a touristic shit show. From all the places I went this was the one I liked the least. Too crowded, too noisy and not a lot to see.

Phuket

Phuket

Maybe the way I traveled across Thailand was not the best one, meaning starting in Bangkok, go to Chiang Mai, back to Bangkok to get to Phuket and finish again in Bangkok. But it was the cheapest way and more efficient I found.

Now that I had experienced Chiang Mai it was time to get to Phuket. It was also time to be on my own. My friend had decided to visit Cambodia instead. I was a bit jealous but i don't regret staying in Thailand.

Thailand

Thailand

Here I am tired, trying to finally get some rest and recover and can't find the words to write about Thailand. Not because I can't, but because there is so much to say. But I want to do it now while everything is fresh in my mind.

Vila Nova de Milfontes - Post Processing

Vila Nova de Milfontes - Post Processing

It took me three tries to finally achieve a result I liked in the photo I made in Vila Nova de Milfontes.

For me, the main challenge was to blend the sky with the other exposures without creating any weird effects, mostly chromatic aberrations, and aliasing.

I am still learning how to blend several exposures.
