I started living in my SUV a few months ago to pursue landscape photography full time. This episode is the pure essence of what a real day entails.
You won’t find any in-depth lessons, tutorials, or even me speaking on camera in this episode. My goal was to provide the most accurate representation of being there with me throughout the day trip. The summer solstice brought early sunrises, late sunsets, and extended blue hours to wait for enough darkness to capture the stars. This made me sleep for 3-4 hour periods twice a day rather than a full night’s sleep. Personally, the hardest part of landscape photography is just being there. Fortunately, it’s much easier when you wake up or rest your head near where you plan to shoot.
I was very lucky to have such conditions every part of the day. It wasn’t until after creating this video that I realized how most days would have been filled with rain, clouds blocking stars, or smoky haze in every photo. If you are curious how I captured or edited any of the photos in this episode let me know in the comments, or if you just have general comments on the format let me know. As always, thanks for watching.
