This week I’m in Las Vegas attending the Photoshop World 2013 conference for several days of photography and Lightroom workshops – starting today with Flight Training for Photographers. This is an all day seminar about learning to fly the DJI Phantom quadcopter. Lots of fun and the creative possibilities for aerial photography and video with a GoPro mounted to the airframe are intriguing. And I’ve already got a GoPro. Hmmm …
Two weeks after returning from the Galapagos Islands Adventure I’m finally done transferring the trip photo and video files from the SD cards to the computer. The transfer was delayed by a hard drive failure, but the drive is replaced, the most recent backup is restored, and now I’m back on track. Seems like a good time to review the workflow I used while on the trip and now back at home.
Our departure from Quito is at 6 a.m. so we leave the hotel at 2:30 a.m. for the one hour bus ride to Quito’s new airport.
After the 5 hour flight, we arrive early in Houston, but need the extra time to get through immigration and customs. Fortunately our layover is long enough to spend a little more time with the group before my flight departs for Dulles. My thanks to excellent friends and travel companions – Brad, Mickey, Donna, Dennis, Sue, Ron, Marguerite, Carol, Bernie, Jessica, Grace, Gena, Bob, Kim, Erik, and Jake – for a great trip! And to our guides – Jose, Lorenzo, and Pablo for an outstanding educational adventure!!
Time for a look back on a memorable week in Quito and the Galápagos Islands.
