Going abroad for a photoshoot is not just that easy. There are those small things that you must learn by experience. The behavioural culture in London isnâ€™t really that different, so thatâ€™s not really a problem.
But the small things â€“ grocery shopping, leaving tips, rush hours and so on â€“ it all adds up, and even when youâ€™ve planned a long way ahead, the plans just seem to differ from what you actually end up doing.
About the process
For the simple reason of saving money, we opted to only take carry-on baggage with us. With the limited space I had in my camera bag, I decided to go with one lens only â€“ Canonâ€™s 35mm f/1.4L II â€“ because it was highly likely that Iâ€™d use that lens anyway. I also decided to leave my Canon 1D Xâ€™s charger behind, because letâ€™s face it â€“ two batteries are more than enough for four days of shooting with 1D X. And they were.
With the saved space saved I was able to carry two catsuits with me, which was really good in order to distinguish the separate days both visually and chronologically.
