Photography

Taking 360° panoramic pictures used to be the domain of those wealthy enough to afford the exotic cameras that took these dramatic images. Not anymore. What was once the domain of the well heeled is now the domain of the high heeled and flip-flop crowd. Now anybody with $134.95 and a few rolls of film in the fridge can be counted among the hoitiest and toitiest landscape shooters.

The Iceland volcano trip that we made last month rocked. I was supposed to teach a creative workshop in August, in Iceland, with Focus on Nature. The Eyjafjallajökull volcano begin to erupt, and I got in touch with Einar Erlendsson who runs Focus on Nature, and told him I had a crazy pyroclastic idea and I asked if we could put together a program called "Fire and Ice" and photograph the volcano.

There are some really cool-looking, rugged digicams out there these days. But regardless of how much attitude your camera exudes while in your hand, the moment you tuck it away, it becomes just another vanilla-flavored weenie cam in a nebbish belt pouch.

With temperatures pushing into triple digits, the Northeast has become a sweltering steam bath, and no place for photographers or A/V pros to be working outside. But if you must, plan to dress for the heat. You want a lightly colored, brimmed hat like the Soundman Sun Hat from Koala (left), not a baseball cap. No matter the logo, a cap leaves your ears and the back of your neck exposed, a recipe for disaster under an unforgiving sun.

June is the hottest, harshest month of the year. The heat and humidity index might be higher in July and August, but light-wise, June is hands-down hotter and harsher. What I'm referring to is the quality of light that washes down upon us as the sun rises to its highest midday point in the sky—and the net effect of all this bright, high-angle light, photographically speaking, is an excess of blue tint and harsh contrast levels.

Tornado warnings. 60 mile-per-hour winds. Rain. Lightning. Generally, when you hear these weather alerts, the last thing you are thinking about is going out to shoot. But time and again I have learned the hard way, that if you don't give it a try, you may miss a great shot.

For some photographers, any tripod head will do. And while this may hold true for many shooters, others eventually get to a point at which the subject matter they're pursuing—and sometimes where they're pursuing their subjects—starts revealing the limitations of the pan or ball head they've been using until that time. If this rings familiar, you might want to look into Induro's PHQ-series 5-Way Panheads.
