    Hi Jim,

    since I am soon leaving for a two month trip to Nepal, Tibet and Sikkim, I was searching the internet just to get this holiday feeling already. I found your website … AMAZING, WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, INSPIRING pics!!!!! You mentioned that you took more than 3000 pics in Tibet. I have just one question. Did you shoot them as raw files to edit them afterwards or simply as jpg (since they are so perfect)? I am just wondering how many memory cards I will need :-).

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Greetings from Munich!

      Thanks for your comment. Here are the answers to your questions.

      – I took both RAW and JPEG. They were edited in Lightroom + Photoshop. The final files are much higher quality than the images on the web site. The pages would load too slowly if I used high quality JPEGs.

      – I took four 16GB cards and an external hard drive that you could “dump” your files at the end of every day as a back-up. I didn’t want to lose any images in case a card was corrupted. The Nikon D7000 has two SD card slots so I could shoot both RAW and JPEG simultaneously, so I had 3 backups of all of my files.
