I can't hardly believe it, but I'm about a week away from my dream photography trip! One week in Alaska teaching Lightroom and photographing wildlife and amazing landscapes! We'll be based out of Anchorage, but will day trip to Redoubt Bay, Brooks Falls, and Whittier. I'll also have a day to myself where I hope to rent a car and drive down the Kenai. One of the great things about a trip is getting ready for that trip!This will be the furthest I've taken so much gear, and it's quite a challenge to pare down to just what I think I will need. One bit of gear I'm most excited to bring with me is my GPS. My plan is to embed the GPS coordinates from each day's shoot into my photos, import them into Lightroom, and then upload them in a Lightroom gallery I modified to turn the GPS data into links back to GoogleMaps.Here's what is required:
- GPS device that produces a tracklog.
- Software to embed the GPS data into each photo's metadata (I'm using ImageIngester).
Here's a sample gallery.
