You can explore being a wedding photographer. :)

 

Diff category. For wedding photographer is diff ball game. Just like food, vehicles, wildlife and etc..

 

In Singapore, vacation photographers only small demand. But with his kilat skills, can charge premium priceee...

I have to bribe, threaten, beg, my family most of the time to wake up early.

Sunrise is not too hard.... the hardest was trying to move them out of the hotel at midnight in winter to catch northern lights in Iceland.

 

Getting up at sunrise  in winter is very hard for a lot of people who travels.

 

Everyday is sightseeing, walking, so they tend to get tired and needed that sleep for the next day.

 

Your family must be very committed to take these photos to do that!

 

For Western Europe, best not to be alone in near touristy places. I feel not safe.

For winter is actually not too bad. We usually go back apartment after sunset which is like 4pm.... and sunrise could be from 7-8am. 

 

We really prefer the winter daylight hours vs summer. Angmo like summer for the long daylight but I think winter is so much better as the light is aways soft even at noon time. Plus you get sunset at 4pm :) no need to wait until 9pm.... Summer sunrise could be like 5am....

For travelling alone, I find Europe, USA streets to be safer during winter months. It's much too cold for bad hats to be hanging around outdoors after dark.

Thanks for sharing with us these wonderful photos. I am going to Europe this spring. My 1st destination point is London. From there I am going to France (Paris) then to Amsterdam, Italy (Venice) and the last point in Prague. There I will spend about 3 days. I dreamed about this trip and often watched through live webcams the crowded cities of Europe, esp I like this Prague tram webcam https://worldcams.tv...ort/prague-tram .Travel is the only thing that money can buy that makes you richer.

I think it is 35mm.

 

I used to carry 15-30mm, 24mm, 35mm, 70-200mm for the longest amount of time for all my trips. This time round I bought a sony a7riii just before the holidays. Sold my nikon D800, 70-200mm.

 

Now my gear is

D750 with 15-30mm or 24mm f1.4

sony a7riii with sony 35mm f1.4 or 85mm f1.8.

 

The sony has an APSC mode that will magnify your viewfinder to APSC crop making your 85mm to around 130mm. Previously, I did not switch to mirrorless because of the AFC performance. I think a7riii is the first mirrorless that is as good as my nikon in AFC and within my budget.

 

After this trip, I am probably convinced sony mirror less is the way to go. The AFC, viewfinder, weight all beats my D750....

 

I came from a humble Canon 1000D. 

Very basic but Canon has great skin tones reproduction.

Sold it and got myself a Bridge Panasonic Lumix FZ1000.

 

Panasonic FZ1000 has a very overly sharpened photo. Worst than Canon albeit costlier than my Canon 1000D.

But it has 4K recording, which was what pushes me to start doing videography more than photography.

Done my 2016 and 2017 Girls of the Singapore Motor Show and then very recently my Hong Kong trip with gimbal and really loses my arm carrying the 1.5 kg payload daily for 5 days , morning to night.

Hence decided to sell it for a brand new Olympus E-M10 mark III.

 

The Mark III is the lightest MFT camera I've ever own for a camera.

Fantastic small compact and retro looking camera.

Weak resolution at 14M pixel for today's standard. 

Compared to your a7R-III , its 1/3 your sensor.

 

My point here is, there is no best camera out here for your usage pattern.

Over the years, as your habits change, utilization shifts, it became nature for one to change camera gear to adapt to the best of one's shooting characteristic.

 

And you notice my gear didn't really leaped in specfication, only features.

It was a from still photography camera, to a DSLR sized bridged camera to a pocket sized micro four-thirds. Odd progress for me,.. oddly I liked the Olympus today than my previous cameras.

Cant really help out with routes. Been a few years since I was driving in Europe. Seem to recall all the good roads were the other side of Brussels to be honest. Hopefully someone will be along to refute that any minute. Have a great road trip.

hi TS, can you share your itinerary? I am planning Eastern Europe trip and still deciding how to travel between countries and whether to rent a car/by train.

 

thanks in advance!
