I recently traveled to Thailand and Shanghai for a bit of filming and location scouting for some projects. When preparing for the trip I realized I needed a travel tripod that I could comfortably walk around with all day and set up for some time-lapse photography.
Filming in Thailand
Recently I decided to take a trip to Thailand and Shanghai. Most of it was for scouting locations and also to build some footage for my reel. I knew I wanted to have high quality footage and wanted to be able to shoot in 4k as well as stills. Lastly I knew there would be times that I wouldn’t have access to power so having batteries and different power options would be very important. In this post I’ll be talking about what I brought, why I brought it, as well as what I didn’t bring. lastly Ill be talking about my challenges when filming in these locations.
