Chris is back from his Arctic photo travels on the s/v Noorderlicht around Svalbard, together with a wonderful group of photographers and he brought home some stories. Learn about Spitzbergen, the world’s biggest laboratory, the Svalbard Global Seed Vault (and if it’s really flooded from melting permafrost), Ny-Ålesund, Barentsburg and Longyearbyen. Hear about the Svalbard wildlife, including reindeer, birds, seals, walrus, polar fox, wales and about our exciting polar bear encounter.
Chris takes a closer look at ND filter systems and helps you determine what you need – and what you don’t. To make sure you have ample time to practice until this summer .. let’s do an early start and talk about how to shoot a solar eclipse. Also if you send in a question by Jun 10 2017, Chris will send you a little surprise. Instructions inside the show.
In this special episode we’ll find out if “having something” is better than “needing something”, we’ll learn what’s so magic about dipping your fingers in chemistry, and you get to listen in while Chris talks to a particle physicist at the Large Hedron Collider project about how to produce dead pixels on your camera sensor.
