Hands-on Review
I can hear you saying it. “Seriously? How do you reinvent something as utilitarian as a mic stand? It only needs to be sturdy and hold your mic in place. Why fix what’s not broken?” True―the mic stand, while incredibly important in the studio, on stage, and at rehearsals, is usually far from exciting. Even the most reliable stands found in world-class recording studios and on tour with platinum-... READ MORE

  Not long ago, it seemed that if you wanted to focus your camera lens so everything beyond a certain distance was in focus, you would turn your focus ring to the "infinity" setting. The lens barrel had engraved or painted markings displaying distances in feet and/or meters and just past the highest digits was this symbol: ∞   One of the traditional hallmarks of a high-quality manual-focus...

Once upon a time, the choices for portable video tripod legs were limited to one design: two-stage, dual-aluminum tube construction, with a ground or mid-level spreader, and that was it. Single-tube legs for still photo shoots have a few nice features, but just aren't designed to handle the situations that confront video shooters. This makes them unsuitable for most video work, and relegates... READ MORE

Photography is not about the camera. It’s not even about the beautiful images we create. It is about telling powerful stories. Photography is a tool for creating awareness and understanding across cultures, communities, and countries; a tool to make sense of our commonalities in the world we share. I believe the way to find common ground is by seeing yourself in others. A lot of my work involves... READ MORE

When I'm on location, I shoot lots of material. I cull my work constantly, and feel relieved every time I delete another hundred or so images. Some people are amazed that I delete anything, and almost everyone is amazed at just how much I delete. "...I find that the editing process really helps, and by deleting, I am able to analyze my shoot and create the necessary contact sheets..." Back in... READ MORE
