Alaska Trip Report

In early September, Ellen and I led a workshop in remote Alaska for fall tundra and auroras. Everyone had a great time, and we got some really beautiful shots! Make sure to check out this timelapse video I put together of the northern lights.

Just wanted to mention that my mother, Ellen, and I co-presented two talks at the 2009 New England Camera Club Council conference this past summer in Amherst, An Introduction to Aperture and The Best They Can Be (about figuring out what adjustments to make to your images). We had a great time and hope everyone enjoyed the talks!

Gura Gear Kiboko

Earlier this year, I purchased Andy Bigg’s new lightweight Gura Gear bag, given it’s about 3 pounds lighter (almost half the weight) of my old Lowe Pro bag. Although I took it to the Falklands, I’ve held off writing about it because I wanted to wait until after my Africa trip when I had a chance to use the bag as intended on a safari. My overall sentiment is that despite a few shortcomings, this is an excellent bag, and I look forward to seeing what other bags Andy and Co produce!
