Photography in Space

NASA astronaut Donald Pettit describes the intricacies of photography aboard the International Space Station (ISS) in the following presentation at Luminance 2012.

NASA astronaut Donald Pettit has called the International Space Station home for a total of 370 days. While there, he’s captured some of the most mind-blowing photos of space – and Earth – we’ve ever seen. Donald gives us an inside look into what it’s like to take photos of space, why bringing 10 DSLRs with him is actually necessary, and the reason why hard drives tend to fail in zero gravity.
