Nikon Slim Polarizer

There is a tremendous amount of reflections when we’re out in the wilds shooting. You might have never have noticed it, but it’s there. This reflection is coming from the sky, the blue sky. The vast majority of the time, the reflection has a blue cast to it which literally reflects off the subject’s color. This blue cast affects the color of the elements in your image (if at the right angle to the sky) giving them all a blue tinge. Many attribute great color in a nature photo to the use of vivid white balance when in actuality the great color was a result of proper use of a polarizer. Proper use of a polarizer removes the blue reflection so the color we see with our eyes is seen and recorded by the camera. It is essential you understand that the proper use of a polarizer is to remove reflections and not make the sky dark blue (though you will have the side effect at times). There are...

di-GPS & SC cords – 12.31.07

The GPS craze has hit big time, must have been a favorite stocking stuffer this year. That’s cool! I’ve received a number of emails in regards to the di-GPS especially about it just “dangling” when you have something else in the camera’s hot shot. Here’s my solution. I rarely work with flash on camera, it’s mostly off camera so I’m using an SC cable, either the SC-28 or SC-29. The SC-28 is the cord I use for general photography; the SC-29 I’ve cut down and is used just with the Wimberley F-9 Flash Arm when I’m shooting with the 600f4 on a tripod. I have a number of “hot shoe” receivers lying around in the drawers, so I have attached them to the tops of the SC cable foot that slips into the camera’s hot shoe. You can just Crazy Glue them on, but they tend to snap off. Using Pilot Point drill bits (not pointed tips), I’ve drilled holes into the top of the SC foot and screwed...

WRP Compact Flash Card Wallet

You have quite an investment in CompactFlash Cards. You also depend on them to be able to capture images. Keep them safe, find them fast and easy to access with DigitalPro’s CompactFlash Wallet. Made from obnoxious bright green 1000 Codura so it can’t be lost at the bottom of your camera bag or left on the car seat, the DP wallet comes in a 6 or 9 card version. Designed by Moose for his work, you’ll find they’re the best CF wallets on the market! An important part of the wallet design has to do with the way I operate. When I have filled a card with images and I replace it, it want to keep it separate from the unshot cards. The system I use is shot cards I turn around so I see the back of the card. Unshot cards I can read the label (and so the size of the cards). To make this system work, I have to be able to see the cards which...
