Adventure Bound | India + Cambodia

Just a quick update. In a few days Casey and I are embarking on an adventure to Asia. Our two main destinations are India and Cambodia and there will be a small detour in Thailand as we pass though the area. Some of the highlights will be a special guided tour of the Taj Mahal.

I have a lot of photography planned and will be posting updates on Twitter, Instagram and Google+ as the journey progresses. This is going to be an interesting trip and I’m expecting I will be photographing a variety of subjects. I’m packing my 5D Mark II as my main camera and a Lumix GX7 as a secondary camera.

Let the adventure commence.

    I am so in love with your photos!! Just wondering what your favorite lens is, or what you recommend? I’m traveling to Norway this summer and am thinking about a new lens for my T3i.
    Thanks so much in advance!

      Hi Laura Beth! Thanks for the comment, I really appreciate it.

      My favorite lens to use right now is probably my Sigma 35mm. The 35 is a super sharp lens and gets really creamy soft backgrounds when dropped down to f/1.4.

      A cheaper alternative is the 50mm from canon it’s small, cheap at approx $110 and great quality for the price. To keep the price down it’s made of plastic so the lens isn’t the most durable. I like the 50mm for travel because of it’s size. I’ve found it works well for shooting both portraits and detail shots. However, it too is a prime lens and forces you to be stuck on 50mm. Anyone serious about improving their photography I always recommend the 50mm. It forces you to be a bit more active in the creative process and lets you drop down to f/1.8 for that creamy out of focus look.

      You may want to consider a zoom. I’ve heard great things about the 24-105 f/4. It’s a lit bit of a bigger lens but covers a nice range. Stay tuned in the coming couple of days because I’m going to use this for a blog post with a lot more in depth about each lens. Honestly, unless you get the 50mm, I would rent the lens from for your trip. If you give them a call they will be able to recommend something for you as well!
