Covid-19 Lockdown…

I can’t think of a five or six month period since 2012 where I’ve taken out my camera so little, but that’s not to say I haven’t been engaged with photography in some way. Since I didn’t really get out and shoot, I concentrated on the future by researching potential gear changes.

PEAK DESIGN SALE!

Peak Design is having a 20-40% sale on everything (except tripods) from March 31 – April 6. If you’re looking for a bag, for photography or anything else, check out PD’s Sling, Tote, TotePack, Backpack, or new Backpack Zip while they’re ON SALE!

It’s not about the gear…

I entered photos in a series Gurushots competitions called “Your Best Shot” in the spring and summer of 2019.  The result was “Your Best Photo – The Second Challenge” and this photo was selected by Dodho Magazine for their Top 100 of 300,000 photos submitted.

Peak Design II (with video)

Back in 2012, I began looking for another way to connect my camera to camera straps, wrist straps, and tripods.  The problem was this, if there was a strap to keep the camera safe from accidental dropping, it almost always interfered with the tripod plate. That’s when I discovered peak design gear, it to appeared to solve all this.  If it worked as advertised, it would mean no more fumbling around with equipment and no more straps that didn’t work with other products.

The Everyday Sling, Continued…

Back in September (2016) I stated that if I had a mirrorless camera, “this would be my bag 24/7!” Well, I meant it, and after writing that post I actually ended up purchasing a Sony A7R mirrorless camera and decided to give the Everyday Sling a shot as my every day bag.

My Two Photo Lessons…

If you want a jolt of reality just go to Smugmug or 500px, search a subject you’ve shot and think you understand, then get ready to be humbled! If you really want to be brought down a few rungs on the ego ladder, search for your camera model and see the photography that has been shot with your camera. This will leave you wondering how they can get these incredible images, but you can’t.
