I'll be the first to admit that Chris Hadfield is way cooler than me. I mean, how can I compete with an astronaut? This awesome video talks about what it's like shooting photos while in space.
Coming to you from Chris Hadfield and Big Think, this fascinating video talks about his experience as a three-time astronaut and specifically what it's like shooting photos from space (of which Hadfield has shot an astounding 45,000). I found it particularly interesting just how many photographic mediums Hadfield had to become proficient in, and it makes sense: of course, you can't send 10 specialized camera operators and photographers into space. In fact, you can't send any; it's the astronauts who have to learn the techniques as well as the artistry as a part of their extensive training, which is what Hadfield did, taking every spare moment (of which there were few) to move to a window and fire off a shot. And his shots certainly show off his proficiency. He became so good at it that he eventually gathered 150 of his favorite shots and made a book of them. You can purchase "You Are Here: Around the World in 92 Minutes (Photographs from the International Space Station)" on Amazon.
