heading to the airport

Wow I can't believe its time to go.  In less than 24 hours I will be in Africa again.

Selecting what equipment to take has been very hard for me as I love to work with a lot of gear. Its always a drag when an idea pops into your head but when you reach for the tool to make it happen its not there.  Guess I just don't like to compromise but I did  I have slimmed the gear down to a few choice lenses, 2 bodies and a whole lot of extra gear to shoot video.  Its amazing how much support, microphones, sound recorders and bits and pieces shooting video requires. I am hoping to shoot a short film while I am at the orphanage as well as some great stills.  All this in less than two days, what am I thinking.

Here are some test shots of a light tent we have built to help me shoot out in the open African sun.  It will diffuse the light for a more pleasing portrait.  Heather, my assistant put a lot of time into dismantling 2 small tents to use the parts to build our light tent with the help of some fabric we bought.

At least I will be setting it up in much warmer weather.  I think its going to work quite well.

Well off to finish final packing of gear and goodies.  Next post Tanzania,
