Mr. Kelby doesn’t think Vero will succeed and he’s probably right. His position is based on the simple fact that it has far less traffic, traction, and just plain old bodies there to stand up to Instagram.
If you’ve followed me any length of time, you know that I use a great many products from B&H’s various house brands. I have never been unhappy with anything I received from them and I know they work hard to deliver quality that matches the name brands without attaching the high price tag that usually goes with those brands.
After a month of use I can safely say this ball head is highly recommended. You can spend more for a ball head but if it’s in a similar size and spec range, you won’t get much if anything for your money.
Obviously, Instagram isn’t over but it is for me. I have deleted the app AND my account because — well everyone knows — it’s a sh#t sandwich.
The Insta platform is being taken over by short videos (Think TikTok) and photographers have to work to “satisfy the algorithm.”
In case you missed it, Photoshop World is one week away and I’m proud to announce that I […]
worked pretty hard on this one. It took me most of a day to set up the set, think through the shot and decide where to place the lights.
The Genaray Full Moon 18″ Bi-Color LED Light is the latest edition to my home photography studio. It is a B&H exclusive. B&H has lots of house brands (which go by a variety of brand names.) I actually have many of their B&H exclusives in my studio> I’ve used some of them years. I’ve tested most of their stuff and in a way most reviewers do not. I have used the gear on actual photo shoots, including some assigned work and other work bound for publication. I have conducted many long term tests of their gear. This gets me really acclimated to the products.
One of my favorite events is Photoshop World. My pal Scott Kelby always does his best to pull the stops out on this event and this year is no different. It was so successful last year as a virtual event that Mr. Kelby decided to do it that way again this year.
If you haven’t figured it out yet – FIGPHOTOS (which stands for action figure photos) is my new moniker for such work. I want to completely separate it from my old job of photographing birds and wildlife. If you follow me because of that specific genre, i.e., birds and wildlife I apologize, but I have taken a new direction. Long story short – my health isn’t good enough for me to do regular field work anymore and the pandemic blew up most of that business anyway.
The Olympus OM-1 (In the future it will be called ‘OM System’) immediately brought my 68-year-old brain back to the days when I bought my first Olympus OM-system film camera. That camera changed my life. And if I were still a practicing, professional, bird photographer I have no doubt this camera would do likewise.
