A post that considers both the T-4 and T-3 days.

 

Yesterday, a day mostly dedicated to the family, with a final shopping points in the way (some snacks to carry during the day and caffeine drinks for the driving 🙂 ). As I will have a very active next days, I will do all the packing  today. I don’t want to stay up late on the days before driving as it adds unnecessary risk to the mix.

Regarding research, a lot has been going on. As Luis Afonso well mentioned, we shouldn’t plan the images as we certainly won’t find the same conditions and/or places that were in action by the time the available images were taken. I use this research process more in the line of creating an inspirational path. By knowing which images already exist, I start to grasp the feeling of what type of images are possible and also, I’ll run away from copying them.

My goals are complete at this point:

  1. Have everything packed in advance to avoid a stressful evening prior to departure.
  2. Be comfortable with the location of the technical articles as my backpack suffered a complete reshufle
  3. Have a list of the last items that will be added just before departure:
    • films
    • drinks
    • keys, documents, etc
  4. Have a good understanding of what has been photographed in the area to help me create a mood and structure to my own process

regarding this post series, I’m planning to put out a new post prior to departure and from then, I will move to a facebook/tweeter format. Will update whenever possible, which will only happen during the breaks. We’ll see how it goes with another series  of posts about the trip itself 😉

The morning started early: after 3 hours of deep and fast sleep, the alarm clock went of at 5:00. And
Day 2 was a long, exhausting day and as a group we decided to sleep a bit more this morning.
