OX Pro Platform – 06.28.06

This movie requires Flash Player 9 Getting DOWN is a real important aspect of wildlife photography. That change in perspective to your subject and the effect it can have on the foreground/background can be profound. I want to let you in on the tool to do this that sports photographers have been using for a while. OX Pro Platform is such a simple but incredibly well thought out tool. You simply attach your head to the plate and away you go. You can attach more than one camera if you want, no stability problem. I’ve used the OX Pro on a number of projects (you should see TSA look at my luggage when this thing goes through) and it has performed...

Howdy All! 06-26-06

Welcome to Moose Blog! You’ve seen it all now! I never thought I would be doing this, but now seems to be the right time for the Moose Blog to come alive and the infamous Moose News to fade away. Daily there is something new that comes along in photography, some items are ones I want to share but there was no simple way for me to do it from all the places in the world I travel to. This blog facilitates my being able to stay in touch with the news from anywhere! Isn’t technology just grand! Those with a Google Home Page or with the right email package, you can receive the Moose Blog Feed so everytime I post something new, you are automatically notified. The blog will make it a whole lot easier for me to keep you informed on those tools, techniques and places I find very helpful in my own photography. We hope that what we have to present here helps you make the...

Nikon 105VR micro – 06.23.06

This lens didn’t even grab my attention at first. While I was told about it long before it’s announcement, I’m perfectly happy with the 70-180 & 60mc for my limited macro needs. It wasn’t until my good friend/mentor Joe McNally showed up with one at our DLWS event that he had purchased that my interest was peaked. He was kind enough to not only share the lens with me, but his thoughts on the lens (he loves it) and applying it. The man is a genius (and not just about lighting!) I got the 105VR and I just LOVE it for portraits (you can count the hairs)! Yeah, it does that macro thing but the working distance of the 105mm at marco has never fit my style. It’s everything else this lens can do that I love shooting it. Its barrel diameter fits my hand just right, especially when I have gloves on. It’s one FINE lens (darn sexy too!), come to a DLWS event… we’ll let you get...

New Arctic Butterfly – 06.23.06

I first wrote about the Arctic Butterfly about a year ago. A portable, self charging version of Sensor Brush which was cute, but simply couldn’t travel without self destructing. I received the new Arctic Butterfly a month ago but before I wrote about it, I wanted to travel with it. You see, it’s a HUGE improvement on the original. The case, on/off switch and brush enclosure are all VASTLY improved. It does not self destruct like the original! I HIGHLY recommend you go buy one if you’re a digital shooter, it’s worth every...

onOne Software – 06.22.06

onOne Software’s Photoshop Pluggin Suite is a ton of fun! Their Frames can be very creative as you can see on the ProPage they put up for me. When you try it, be sure to go beyond the “out of the box” frame by changing frame and shadow colors which is real...
