Tis the glorious holiday season, when many of us flock south to enjoy the warm hospitality of our southern neighbours. I figured I would take the time to discuss the intricacies of taking photos using DSLR cameras in warm and tropical temperatures.
I am always amazed by what another country has to offer. So during my latest travel excursion, I made the decision to explore the countryside of the Dominican Republic. I was hoping that I would catch the beauty of this subtropical island, as well as to discover some of its fantastic exports! With me were three cameras; my GoPro Hero4 Black, my Sony a5000, and my iPhone 6. I was not disappointed by what I discovered, and I can’t wait to share what I learned with you!
I must start by saying that I am as surprised at writing this article, as you, my friends and family, are at reading it. Who would have thought that this secret and quiet passion of mine would amount to anything, let alone, THIS? Thousands of photos later, I am choosing the ones that changed my life, to share with you my journey that brought me here.
I remember clearly posting this picture. It was my first Instagram shot. I had been staring, so transfixed in the moment, blue ripples hypnotizing me. It was during this time that I needed creative release more than I ever did. We all have those moments, for sure, and with the uniqueness that makes us human, we all express them differently.
