-First night I had my backpack rummaged through by what I was sure was a bear… or Miles. Turns out, it was a coyote. I knew I should have put it in a safe place before crawling in my tent… but the one time I thought “screw it” was the time my bag got ransacked.
-In a mad dash to grab a shot, Miles dropped a lens. The sound it made hitting the ground was loud enough to scare away any wildlife that was nearby. It was a circus of expletives the rest of the day.
-Nagesh soaked his iphone in a creek crossing. Oddly, this meant his phone would not turn on, but the flashlight on the back would not turn off. We put it in rice… and that did nothing but make the rice taste like phone.
It was a heavy traffic week on the Olympic coast, running into some guys I knew, and guys I’d yet to meet. Was great to see some friendly faces out there, but the crowds are a little bothersome to shoot in. We ended up having Rialto Beach nearly to ourselves one of the nights and spent a couple hours getting soaked in the surf.
I recently released a tutorial video that covers some of the techniques I use in my processing. I also lead in-field workshops, teach processing online via Skype screen sharing, and blah blah blah… check it all out at http://ift.tt/HjSx9r
