Why We Must Shoot!

More and more it sounds like haunting garage sale for photography can have historic treasure. You have the Billy the Kid photo a few weeks back, Ansel Adams before that and the list goes on and on. The film above found in WA at a garage sale. And while that’s really cool to be found and preserved, it had to be photographed in the first place. The photo of Billy the Kid, he was just play croquet. The movie above just a fly in, there was nothing extraordinary about the subjects. At this when it was taken. Same thing could be said about what we photograph today. If nothing else, this is proof how important YOUR photography is though! You have no idea if, forty, fifty, sixty years from now YOUR images are “found” and celebrated because they tell a story of a time gone by.

Watson Packing Power

I’ve been taking more gear as I try to take less luggage. This means means what I do take needs to take less space and do more duties. Batteries are the heart of so much of our gear, gotta have more and more. I just found the Watson Rapid Charger and fell in love cause it works great! Besides being a low price and coming with 4 AA Watson 2300mnh batteries, it does rapid charge the batteries. But it’s physically very small and has the wall plug built into the charger that folds away when not in use. It’s the smallest and lightest package I’ve found and love it! (You can save more money getting this version which has no LCD panel.) Part of this strategy is taking more charged batteries with me and with the Watson Rapid Charger, always having them ready to go. I picked up the Watson 8-Bay Charger kit, what a great deal and unit! The Charger itself can charge 12 AA batteries at one...
