I'm on the road all week with a group of participants on the Samsung NX Traveller program, photographing and eating my way through South Korea. I am surrounded by photography experts, enthusiasts and super-friendly folks from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Australia.
In two-plus days, I've been to Gyeongbok Palace. Yeouido, Naksan Park, Ihwa Mural Village, Nami Island, Myeongdong Street in Chuncheon and Gangchon Rail Park (Rail Bike Ride) so far.
I'm shooting with the Samsung NX1 camera with the premium 16-50mm f2.8 OIS lens (and also the new NX500 and other lenses) and thus far, I am fairly surprised at how capable these cameras are.
You can follow me on Instagram (@mr_brown) if you want to see more photos I'll be sharing on the trip.
Right now, I am enjoying a can of Lotte Milkis soda in my Alpensia Intercontinental Resort hotel room, which is a nice thing to do after spending a wet and cold day out sightseeing and shooting (it was 3°C pretty much all day).
It's supposed to be spring, and the cherry blossoms have been out in force, but as we move north, it's feeling more like winter. We even spotted snow here and there. I am glad I packed enough merino wool layers.
Tomorrow, I wake up at 6am and start another day of touring, photography and dining in Korea.
I know. It sounds like hard work. But someone's got to do it.
