Capture Your Adventure

Posted on the 15 April 2011 by Exceedpossibility @exceedpossible
Earlier today I bought a new camera; a Panasonic Lumix G2. It's light weight, small and does everything I need it to! I've always been keen on taking photographs, especially when travelling around the world in places like the Himalayas or on the roof of Africa. Capturing an adventure makes it accessible for friends and family back home; an adventure you couldn't share with others just wouldn't be the same. It should be an experience for all, whether it needs to be or not.
Everyone from amateur to professional explorers and adventurers has captured their journeys since the days of Captain Scott (shown below), among others.
Capture Your Adventure
Today photos can be streamed live and appear on websites mere hours and minutes after being taken. Seeing a person pulling a pulk across the Antarctic or struggling up a windy K2 is incredible, it makes you feel like you're there and gives a great insight in to what is going on, often half way across the world. These photos inspire me to go out and capture my own, as well as inspiring me to get off my chair and get outside doing something active, whether it's climbing or cycling.
With my new G2 in hand I'm going to be taking a lot of pictures from now on and I'll be sure to share them with you all. Anyone got any tips? Check out my older photographs on the relevant page on the top menu, with a better camera I should get some even better shots.
