Yep today was definitely a "funday." I had a chance to work with "Senor Kicks" a 7yr old Dachshund. I love using photography as an excuse to play with all these dogs I've been photographing! You can follow his insta-travels here: https://www.instagram.com/senorkicks/
Here is a description of what I had in mind for my new workflow. While traveling (to other countries hopefully) I'll take either my Fuji X100T or Fuji X-T10 (both have built in wifi) then I'll select the photos I'm happy with and WiFi them over to my iPad. Once on my iPad I'll create an album to organize them, then do some photo edits if needed. By doing that I'll have photos organized edited and ready to post to my blog. Usually if I don't do that during my downtime on a trip it will take forever for me to get the photos online. Now on my memory card in the camera I will have a copy of all the photos I took in jpg and raw format while the iPad will have a backup of the selected jpg files I'm most happy with. Once I get back home I can then backup my memory cards to my external hard drives and cloud using a computer. No doubt it will take me some time to get adjusted to this new way of doing things, but if I can get it to work out the pay off will be huge for me.
As for my iPad setup, I got the 256gb iPad Pro, with an iPad Air 2 rooCase Origami Slim Fit shell/Smart Cover (smart cover feature doesn't work on the iPad Pro) along with a Microsoft Universal foldable Bluetooth keyboard. Funny that the keyboard is made by MS but it works great and feels just like the keyboard for the Surface Pro just no backlight. Oh and if you're wondering why I didn't just go with a Surface Pro? It is because I just don't really like it, I have ran into all kinds of strange little issues with it while testing. By the way, the blog post I created called "Fuji X-T10 x Canon FD 28mm mashup" (http://http://andrewwongphoto.net/?p=2488) was completely created with the iPad using the workflow I had described above. Using the iPad Pro will be great a great tool as long as I embrace what it can do and not worry about what it can't.
Here are some photos I recently took with this setup.
It's always a pleasure to do what I love with awesome people on fun projects. Check out the latest issue of Invision Magazine featuring Oakland Vision Center. I had the opportunity of photographing them for the July/August publication.
Myanmar, all I can say is wow! A country filled with so much culture, smiling faces, and golden Pagodas everywhere (yes everywhere!). As someone who loves to document everyday life with a camera, I felt so alive creatively. I often found myself people watching and composing scenes in my head before pressing the shutter button of my camera. Below are photos I took around Yangon to Inle Lake (located in the Shan State). I left this country energized with a feeling to travel more to experience everyday life in new places. There is still so much more I want to explore here and I'm looking forward to the day I return.
