Video – What’s In My Bag – Tools

Published / by adminjc

Hi Everyone,

In this video I talk about two tools that I use a lot when I go out into nature to take photos. I always have one, if not both, with me. You can see the video here https://youtu.be/RcYvCzrV-XQ

It’s tools like this that make a hike a little easier and safer. They also help you meet the challenges that nature throws at you.

What’s In My Bag – Protect Your Knees

Published / by adminjc

Hi Everyone,

Check out my latest video on how to kneel on the ground and rocks without your knees hurting https://youtu.be/cpPx9-scvGw

Northern Arizona has a lot of cinder and sharp basalt (hardened lava) as the region used to be very volcanic. I often have to kneel on hard ground, rocks and even fallen trees. I’m no spring chicken, and this hurts my knees. I’ve found an easy and inexpensive solution to this problem that you can use too.

What’s In My Bag – Charging My Phone In Nature

Published / by adminjc

Hi Everyone,

Check out my video on powering your phone and tablet when you can’t plug in.

If you find yourself nowhere near an electrical outlet, but need to charge your phone or tablet, then this power supply is just what you need. It will quickly charge your devices and get you going again.

I purchased one of these when I was taking a lot of photos with my phone at a Pompeii exhibit, and drained my battery. Since then, I’ve used it when in nature and at events where I can’t charge my phone easily. I just plug in the power supply to my phone to quickly charge it up.

Have Fun,
Jeff

What’s In My Bag – 5-in-1 Reflector

Published / by adminjc

Hi  Everyone,

In this issue of What’s In My Bag, I talk about my 5-in-1 reflector.

I love photographing in nature, but you have little to no control of lighting. You can get up early, or shoot at sunset, but clouds, trees, plants, shadows and other aspects of nature can keep you from getting that perfect shot.

The easiest way around this is to have a reflector that will let you shine light where you need it, or cut back on the light on a bright sunny day. It only works for small things, like models, bushes, flowers and the like. The nice thing about reflectors is that they are small, light and easy to use. And the one I use lets you do five different things with light.

Check out my video and you may find that a reflector is just what you have been looking for.

I hope you enjoy this video https://youtu.be/CU2sUT1mPfE
