      www.xenondesigns.net Three minutes of video for three weeks of travel, three countries, three cultures (and three tee-shirts in my backpack !) ; I took a train ticket for the Trans-Siberian railway, in order to reach Beijing from Moscow, crossing Mongolia. I travelled alone with my bag, half-filled with my video gear. At that time, I didn't knew that my ticket for that seat 22 would be the beginning of a once in a lifetime journey.

        • Mongolia!


          from wiissa Added 384K 1,833 85

          this summer we got an amazing opportunity to go on a ten-day motorcycle trip across the scarcely populated steppes of mongolia and live their nomadic life. while researching mongolia prior to our trip, we found out that most of the native mongolians love having photographs taken of themselves. although mongolia's capital, ulaanbaatar, is fairly urbanized, modern technology is not as commonly seen in the countryside. many of the families we met had very few or no pictures as a family together. most opportunities to have a printed photo of themselves either came from tourists or from visiting the city. also, most young people (we met a boy Vanessa's age, 17, who didn't have a printed photo of himself) have never had a photo to keep of themselves. we decided to bring a bunch of polaroid film along on our motorcycles so each local we met along the way could have a picture to keep of him or herself! when we asked one family if we could take a picture of them, we were kind of scared of bothering or distracting them from their daily life. we didn't see the family for the next ten minutes so we assumed they didn't want a picture. finally, the family (the first family seen in the video) came out of their yurt dressed in traditional celebratory clothing! we were so honored to be able to capture a moment of them together. people huddled around us just to have their photo taken and once they got one, they'd return to their yurt, but eventually return with other friends or family members who also wanted a polaroid. each person photographed really prized and protected his or her polaroid (fearing that we wanted to keep it), and barely let us see it when it was developed! the children automatically stored it away once we showed them it. it was a really great experience and showed us how much just one photograph can mean to people. although many people claim they want to escape this mess of technology in more developed countries, we often tend to take the beauty of some technology, such as photography, for granted. anyways, this video is the reactions of just a few people we photographed...enjoy! :D the song is "janglin' (itunes session)" by edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros (UPDATE: through articles and this description, there have been several misunderstandings.. we're sorry for any misunderstandings and we hope we cleared it up! we made this video originally just for ourselves, our friends, and our family. we never imagined it would get this many views, although we're very grateful for them, so our description might not have been perfect.. we don't want to blame any articles either, because our original description for our intended few viewers was a bit ambiguous. we hope you can please ignore any misconceptions and enjoy the profound delight these people received from the magic of photography! :) their nomadic lifestyle is very beautiful, but just different to ours. our trip to mongolia was a very unique and special experience, which we hope to share with as many people as we can.)

                  from Amish Solanki Added 21.6K 685 89

                  At the start of 2011, my wife and I decided to finally pursue our dream of travelling - we sold our home, she quit her job, and we hopped on a plane with just our backpacks. This short trailer features some of the footage I shot during our travels together since then. #driventoexplore http://www.amishsolanki.com Photo images from our travels on our blog http://www.asphoto.ca/travel Travel Notes /// During the two years, we did 4 separate trips, the countries consisting of: Indonesia, India, Palau, Philippines, Mongolia, Nepal, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia, and UAE. Most of these are featured in the trailer. Gear Notes /// All footage was shot either on a Canon 5D Mark2, 60D or Canon S95 (for underwater footage). Lens choice consisted of: 70-200L 2.8 IS, 24L 1.4, 28 1.8, 16-35L 2.8, 135L 2.0, 45TSE 2.8. The Canon S95 was housed in a www.Recsea.com housing with a Dyron 16mm fisheye lens. No external videos lights were used, but I did have a ultralight arm set with a http://www.SeaAndSea.com YS-01 strobe (the ultralight arm set helped with camera control for video). Support gear consisted of a Glidecam 1000HD, Manfrotto 776Y Compact Monopod, Joby Gorillapod Focus with Ballhead X, and a homebrew DIY Slider - I didn't always travel with all of these items but rather chose a couple pieces for each trip (usually 2-4 months at a time). Backpacks. I'm a bit of a backpack collector, I've taken 3 different backpacks on my trips, trying to find the perfect one. The first two trips I used a Tamrac Evolution 8, second trip was a Lowepro Vertex AW 300, and finally for my last trip (the bag I was always on the lookout for) a http://fstopgear.com Loka. Before my trek to Everest Base Camp, I wanted a way to keep my camera accessible instead of having to constantly pull it out of my backpack. I knew having to get the camera from my backpack would limit the amount of photos/video that I would be taking. I came across a recent Kickstarter project called the Camera Clip System from https://peakdesignltd.com. I was lucky enough to find one for sale on Craigslist and picked it up. This was hands down one of the best purchases that I had made. If you are interested in purchasing one of their items, make sure to use coupon code: asphoto on their website for a 10% discount. update: They have recently launched a v2 on kickstarter which looks amazing, can't wait to get my hands on it. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/97103764/capture-camera-clip-v2 Edit Notes /// In conjunction with my ASUS laptop, we each carried a 1TB external HDD on us for safety, so I always had three copies of any data, in the case something got lost or stolen. I had to search through over 3TB of footage to compile this trailer together. It took a while. Edited in Adobe Premier Pro CS6 Music Licensed by Light Speed by Peter Mcisaac Music Thanks to Michael + Casey + Danielle for all your help and inspiration for putting this together! Big thanks to all the friends we made during our travels. The laughs, drinks and stories we shared will never be forgotten.

                    As the title suggests, this is a story about cashmere. More specifically this a story about the dilemma faced by nomadic herders caught between their reliance on cashmere and the impacts of climate change and overgrazing on the fragile grasslands of Mongolia. Three herders from the North Gobi region of Bayankhongor Province narrate the changes to their environment they have witnessed, how global demand and volatile cashmere prices have changed herding practices and what they think has to be done to ensure their income and environment.
