I've always been a fan of constant lighting. Now that we can get LED light panels with adjustable color temperatures, I like it even more. I've been looking for some inexpensive LED panels for awhile, and of course Neewer came through. If you've never owned Neewer equipment, it's worth taking a look at. They're "good...

Think Tank Retrospective 7 / What’s In My Bag
I've had the Think Tank Retrospective 7 bag for over two years now, so I figured it was about time I wrote about it. Since I was taking pictures of the bag for this post, I decided I'd throw in the obligatory "What's in my bag" post, as well. My main problem with bags (other... Continue Reading →
Elago W3 Stand for Apple Watch
I haven't reviewed anything lately, but UPS delivered something today that is worth mentioning. I've had a Nomad watch stand almost since I bought my Series 0 Apple Watch. It's a great stand. It looks classy, and it's well built. But when I saw this Elago stand on Amazon the other day, I had to have it.
Philips Hue Lux WiFi Connected Bulbs
I wasn't sure if the original Philips Hue lights were a gimmick or not, so a year ago I bought the starter pack. They were kind of gimmicky, except for one purpose. In the winter, I have the bedroom Hue light set to gradually come on starting around 6:45am. I set the color to a... Continue Reading →
Plantronics BackBeat Pro
This has nothing to do with photography. Or maybe it does--if you like to listen to music while you edit. I just had to mention these headphones. I'm one of those strange people who loves the sound of Beats headphones. I like heavier bass. Before I bought my Beats Solos, I wandered around town trying... Continue Reading →
WINGStand for Apple Bluetooth Keyboard
I bought a WINGStand for the iPhone. It clips onto an Apple bluetooth keyboard and holds the iPhone (or other mobile device,) making it easy to type up a long document when you don't have access to your iPad or MacBook. It fits the iPhone with a shell case perfectly, but the case I have... Continue Reading →
Smartphone photography with the Reticam tripod mount
I’ve owned a few different tripod mounts for my iPhone over the years. None of them were all that stable, and all of them have found their way to the Drawer of Despair. All except the RetiCAM.
If you've been paying attention, you've noticed two things:
1. I haven't been posting regularly
1. I've moved the blog off of WordPress
The decision to move from WordPress originally stemmed from general slowness. This isn't necessarily WordPress' fault--it was most likely due, in part, to the shared hosting I was using. I switched to Koken, which is an awesome new CMS, but there was no way to import my old blog posts. Finally, I made the decision to move to Squarespace. Page load speeds seem faster, and the interface is pretty slick. Also, I was able to import my old WordPress posts, and create a URL redirect so old links will still work. Unfortunately, the shortcodes I used in the WordPress blog don't translate, so until I have a chance to go through the old posts, you will occasionally notice a naked shortcode or two. I appreciate your patience.
Canon P-215 Scanner Review
One of my goals (I don't do resolutions,) for 2013 is to become as paperless as possible. If you really want to see how paperless you can become with Evernote's help, read Jamie Rubin's blog. Jamie is Evernote's Paperless Ambassador, and his blog is full of awesome ideas. Photographers accumulate paper. Release forms, contracts, receipts,... Continue Reading →
