New Bags from Think Tank Photo + Cool Tutorials & More!

Well it’s almost the end of March and it still feels almost like Winter here in CT! Calling for snow on Sat. and next week! Ick!

My friends at Think Tank Photo have some new bags and backpacks for those of you who have switched to a smaller camera.

Think Tank Photo has just released the Urban Approach 15 Backpack, the first backpack designed specifically to hold a complete mirrorless or compact DSLR camera, as well as a 15” laptop, up to a 10” tablet, smart phone, and extra space for gear and personal items.  The Urban Approach 5 shoulder bag holds one medium to large mirrorless or compact DSLR body with lens attached, one to three additional lenses, and an 8” tablet.  The Urban Approach 10 shoulder bag holds one medium to large Mirrorless body or compact DSLR with lens attached, two to four additional lenses, and up to a 10” tablet.  And don’t forget that with my special arrangement with Think Tank, when you place an order for $50 or more you will automatically be able to receive a Think Tank item for free! Click on the links above for each item.

I often get questions in my classes on how to add text and logos to images. I have a video tutorial on creating and adding your watermark to your image over on my YouTube page. And on Fotalia’s blog, they have some instructions on adding type and logos.

Pretty Presets is offering (for a limited time) a free resource guide for photographers. I plan to take a look at this myself! There are resources for everything from web hosting, print labs, supplies, equipment, props…the list goes on!

And if you REALLY want to get creative in Photoshop, Pixel2Pixel has some awesomely cool tutorials on creating abstract backgrounds. These are great for creating posters, brochures, logos and so much more.
