One of my photos, taken almost four years ago, was featured today by the Gurushots.com website!
I needed to lighten up my camera bag recently because it was simply too heavy for my back after surgery in 2010. When I looked at where that weight was coming from, it didn’t take long to see it was my Canon 6D and the three lenses.
This isn’t an angry “screw Canon” sort of message, it’s actually a bit sad for me as I’ve been a loyal Canon user for eight years now. I have also loved every Canon camera I’ve owned, as well as their lenses.
Our oldest daughter was studying Mount Rushmore last year so when planning a trip to Wisconsin it seemed like a no brainer to stop in South Dakota. Long before leaving, a little research seemed in order.
When originally asked if I’d be interested in one of the new Peak Design bags I actually said “no”… Sometimes I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
I wanted something in the bag that could reach out to 300mm, if it was too big to carry it probably wouldn’t be with me when I went out. Then I read about the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 L DO IS USM.
Only 30+ hours to get a new Peak Design bag at Kickstarter!
The Campania region of Italy, has an incredible history, generous people, spot-on vino, some of the best food in Italy, and is also completely underrated.
Yesterday I did an interview with SpecialInterview.com about my photography.
If these new bags are anywhere as good as their Everyday Messenger Bag released last year, you might want to get one early through their Kickstarter Campaign.
The cool thing about this garden is that there is so much to shoot once inside and, because the Japanese Friendship Garden sits below Balboa Park, you really feel like your somewhere else and not sitting in the middle of San Diego.
Bill Chizek is a retired Navy Musician, now amateur photographer from El Paso, TX and San Diego, CA. His photography journey began in 1981. He takes photos of anything that catches his eye; aircraft, cars, architecture, and anything historical along the way. We have conducted an interview with Bill.
I’ve been using Peak Design gear since 2012 and am still wow’d by their products! I can’t see myself walking out to shoot without a piece of Peak Design gear
El Paso has one foot firmly placed in its history it still has one foot in the future going forward.
After seven months with my Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag, I feel comfortable saying how this worked out.
I used to carry too much gear, way too much. So many extras for ‘just in case’ moments that my bag weighed a ton. Most of it was just along for the ride.
