A friend of mine, Tyson, recently acquired a CNC machine and needed a logo to test it out with. I offered mine since it’s fairly simple and could hopefully allow him to see how the machine and software worked. It came out flawless (not surprising for Tyson’s work) even for being on a piece of scrap wood. Naturally I had to take some shots of it. Tyson is a super talented woodworker and you can fine his work at @tyson_moore on Instagram.
A few months ago, I began working with ShotKam Gun Camera to produce images and videos for the release of their latest product. They have designed an action camera that is mounted under the barrel of a shotgun to record and review each shot taken either at home or in the field. It's a serious piece of kit that records full HD at 100fps. For more information on ShotKam checkout there site here.
This post is a testament to how important it is for photographers to always have a camera with them. I know we have our phones with us all the time and that they can take excellent photos but they are too divided. Between the texting and the Instagram and the email, the camera app can get lost in all that noice. But a camera is so much more focused and when you carry one it is impossible to ignore the pull to make pictures.
Every night I walk our dog. And every night I walk the same stretch of street outside our house. But this night I decided to take my camera just for the heck of it and even though I walked the same bit of pavement I saw a different street. I saw the light and I became aware of the trees. They were still devoid of leaves but some had begun to bloom their white blossoms. Lit only by streetlights they were illumined as if they were in a studio.
I went back home for my tripod.
