A Photographer’s Guide to Packing for Holiday Travel

Photographers packing for holiday travel often spend more time selecting photo gear than clothing and related personal items. Considering all the variables that go into packing the perfect photo bag or pack, this is quite understandable. One method that works for me is laying out on a table all the gear I’d like to bring, and whittling it down to a manageable amount based on what I expect to photograph.

Bring Your Studio Anywhere with Samsung Portable SSDs

When I started getting into MIDI-based music production in the early 2000s, most people agreed that hardware still had a clear edge over software-based setups. Back then, most serious urban and dance producers were making music with hardware drum machines and keyboard workstations, then tracking everything to a computer running a DAW. Like many others, I started with an Akai MPC 2000xl, which was one of the drum-programming staples of the time.
