Fluidity is the key to my everyday carry (EDC). Besides my day job as a writer and photographer here at B&H Photo Video, I also teach sailing on the Hudson River, do freelance commercial architectural photography, teach college photography, commute to Manhattan from Brooklyn by bicycle, and ride commuter trains to Rhode Island on weekends.
