With the sudden excitement of 2014 Burning Man tickets becoming available – I’ve remembered that I’ve STILL not done a public Burning Man Gallery. I went last year (2013) and had a press pass so I could publicly share my photography 🙂
I made business cards so that I could give them to all I photograph so I could give HighRes photos away as a form of gifting. As such these and many more have been up in a private gallery, but I thought it about time I made some public!
I took my D800, a couple of lenses and a speedlight. I was intending to do a mini studio at dusk – however our camp (Cabana Club) had it’s camp meals around that time and so I missed the opportunity other than a few in the camp! I’m not going again this year – but hopefully soon – and then I think I may make a special effort e.g. ask someone to keep food aside for me.
Dust wise – I bought a cheap waterproof housing – kind of a bag – but realised that to put the camera in I would need to take the lens off! SO not the best in a dust storm. So I just took the camera out as it was and put it in a bag if there was a particularly bad dust storm. D800 is weather sealed anyway. Also bought a can of compressed air before getting to the Playa. Anyway – this isn’t supposed to be a blog post about photography on the Playa – but instead one to share photos – so here are my favourites.
