July 2 Sunday Sampler

Happy Independence Day! Sorry for the delay in this week’s blog post – got involved in cleaning up my craft room yesterday (for my “other” hobbies!).


This week’s Sunday Sampler consists of scrapbook papers that I photographed at our Creative Photography Conference. A great way to get some cool textures for your library! Papers can be found at most craft stores.


MORE NEW GEAR FROM MINDSHIFT! NEW PhotoCross Adventure Photography Bags!

Adventure photographers need a camera bag that’s as tough as they are. With its rugged materials and faceted design, MindShift Gear’s new PhotoCross sling bags protect a photographer’s gear from punishing trips into the wild. The PhotoCross is built to withstand the elements, yet comfortable enough to wear on long days in the field. These sling bags stay out of the way when scrambling but offer quick camera access when ready to take the shot. They feature weatherproof zippers and abrasion-resistant materials, plus a carrying system for tripods or jackets.

The PhotoCross comes in two sizes and colors, Orange Ember and Carbon Grey.  The PhotoCross 10 fits an ungripped DSLR and one to two lenses, plus a 10” tablet, or a Mirrorless body and three to five lenses, plus a 10” tablet.  The PhotoCross 13 fits an ungripped DSLR, two to four lenses, including a 70–200mm f/2.8, and some 13” laptops.

“The PhotoCross sling bags are significant because they meld two concepts that are often in conflict in outdoor gear design:  protection and comfort.  An example is how we’ve integrated the waterproof Tarpaulin bottom panel with a body-conforming design, wide shoulder strap, and stability wing for superior comfort,” said Doug Murdoch, MindShift Gear’s CEO and Lead Designer.  CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE WEBSITE.



I’ve seen several people on Facebook over the past week questioning the best way to capture fireworks during this festive time of year. Tamron pro, Jillian Bell, has this great free eBook – sponsored by Tamron and Macphun – that gives you all the info you need! Check it out HERE!



Another popular subject for photographers is landscapes! Here’s an article for “12 Ways to Improve Your Digital Landscape Photography” from PictureCorrect.com.
