LensCoat Protection

Lenscoat has some cool new protection for our gear just in time for summer travels with TSA. Their new BodyBag Pro is cool because it really takes up no room yet provides a barrier between your camera body and the outside world (the body is faded in above so you can see how easily and custom the BodyBag Pro fits a D3). You can even use this with the body attached to a neckstrap. The FlashKeeper does the same thing for your flash unit while providing an extra compartment for batteries or gels. It easily holds the SB-800 with the 5th battery chamber attached. And the BeamerKeeper is super for holding the Better Beamer. I rely on all of these products to protect my gear when I’m flying and when it’s being shipped in the Pelican to locations. It’s never let me...

WRP’s MP-7!

It’s here! We’re quite happy to tell the world (well sort of, it’s in our current BTJ) about our latest photopack, the MP-7. In my mind, I call it the Joe McNally pack because it can easily carry 4 SB-800s and all the other gear I’ve seen my hero take out when he works his magic. To learn more and to place your order, head here. The majority of our first shipment is already gone, so new orders might not be shipped for two-three weeks. But it’s well worth the wait. This is the photopack I was carrying around Photoshop World a couple of weeks ago that many were asking...

I found spring!

As the sun was getting ready to set, we were driving back from dinner and there was spring! This grand old Valley Oak has been a favorite of mine for decades, photographed it many times over the years. Tonight, it just had that look of spring with the new greens popping out unlike just a couple of days ago. So, parked the truck and off I ran. I finally found some green in the Central Valley and then what do I go and do…. yeap, I like it better as a B&W! Go figure. I guess the rash slowly growing up my leg and driving me nuts is what I get for thinking B&W for a spring image (and wearing short pants running through a field). Photo captured by D3, 14-24AFS on Lexar UDMA digital...

What was I after?

That has been a common question in the last few days. Actually, it’s something I’ve been trying to photograph for 21yrs, only got it once and that was back in 2000. This was my view, what I stared at for nine hours yesterday (while sitting in the heat and dodging dust devils). These are the baked hills of CA’s Central Valley and no matter what I try in Photoshop, they ain’t going to look good, so I made the photo look old. And we knew the subject was there, we’d tracked the family right to the den. In fact twice I saw a couple of ears, eyes and nose. But I never got the shot I was after. But what I was after were Fuzzheads. Now, if you don’t know what that is, I suggest it being Earth Day, you do a little web searching and find it out (you don’t have to email me the answer). Hopefully in June I’ll be back with them and even though they...
