Packing for a photography trip, image created by Midjourney
25th August 2023

Packing for a photography trip is never easy. It may be more straightforward if it’s only for a weekend rather than a few months. But it’s still a matter of making the right choices. Now it’s the Summer holidays season and I’m doing lots of packing and unpacking myself. For example, this weekend is a bank holiday here in the UK, and I’ll be visiting places. So, I thought it would be...

Photographer's Everyday Carry EDC
16th March 2021

Here is my Photographer’s Everyday Carry (EDC). EDC includes all the nifty tools you always carry with you that may come in handy to overcome simple everyday unexpected problems. The famous “I’ll bring that, just in case…” Think of these items as the spare tire in your car, but more likely to be used (hopefully) 😉 I suppose in this digital age, even phone apps may count as EDC… Perhaps, this may...

Black Friday 2020
24th November 2020

It’s that time of the year again, Black Friday 2020 is coming this week! Last year, the deals list I compiled was a huge success, so I decided to do this again. I only link products that I know are good. Either because I have them myself or I used similar products of the same brand or I know them from trustworthy reviews. There is nothing in this Black Friday 2020 list...

What's In My Camera Bag
27th August 2020

You likely see the “What’s In My Camera Bag” videos all over YouTube. It’s quite a popular topic for several reasons: people are genuinely interested in what professionals use, it satisfies the Gear Acquisition Syndrome, it’s a way for a content creator to put out some affiliate links (they do help), etc. And even though I do not do too many reviews, I had to publish my own version too. If only...

Close-up shot of the moon
10th February 2020

The Astronomy Calendar 2020 makes a lot of sense in this blog. You might remember from previous posts or Instagram Stories that I’m obsessed with Sun and Moon. In fact, I already talked about my hunt for a Supermoon (and eclipse) here and here. When it comes to sunrise and sunset, there’s a bit of luck involved because you can hardly know if the colours in the sky will turn how you...

2020
27th December 2019

So, what can you expect from me in 2020? If you follow me on Instagram (like you should, @fabienb) you may have noticed how I’ve gone quiet in December. This is often the case for me. This is the month I look back at all that happened during the year and then prepare for the new one. This time is also the start of the new decade. How exciting! With the Xmas...

Christmas Gifts
11th December 2019

You didn’t really think you would not find a Christmas gifts list here, did you?Of course, I had to make one! I put together a list of a few items I own (or I have at least tried) and recommend. Maybe you saw my Black Friday list, where I didn’t go on trying to sell you just anything. So, if you trust me a little bit you know this is good stuff...

books to read while travelling - @fabienb with Stable Diffusion
3rd October 2018

With a dozen flights, a few trains, several buses and some spare time at beaches, I had plenty of opportunities to read books during my trip, and there are definitely a few I’d like to recommend. Most of my reads these days are non-fiction, largely focused on life improvement, motivation and so on, and I find these books to be quite inspirational. As always with these books, you don’t necessarily need to...

It’s a very convenient way to visit most of my Seoul...

Travel - @fabienb with Stable Diffusion
4th September 2018

And so I’m packing for my month-long travel (longer, actually), and as always, the question is, “What do I bring with me?”. It wasn’t always the case, but now I’m used to travelling light. Sometimes super light. But that’s for a week maximum, while this time I’ll be away for at least a month. I think I’ve been smart in choosing to travel between countries that will have consistent weather all along;...
