Photo of the WEEK – Sportscaster

Jared Polin September 20, 2010 3

Recently I went and photographed Dave Leno an up and coming sportscaster as he called a Camden River Sharks game. I had all access to capture Dave before the game on the field as well as during up in the booth. This weeks photo of the week was selected from this photo shoot and shows Dave int he booth calling the game with the stadium in the background. This one spoke to me the most as I was able to capture Dave in his element.

You can see the tweaks I made in lightroom as well as hear one of Dave’s calls form the game in the video below. Be sure to check out the slide show of all the photos from the day.

Think Tank Sling-O-Matic

Jared Polin September 17, 2010 34

Look what came in the mail, its the Think Tank Photo Slingo-O-Matic the worlds first reversible sling bag!!! Be sure to read below to see how you can get 5 BONUS points towards the Think Thank Retrospective 20 contest.

I say this all the time when I get a new bag, there is not one bag that will replace every other bag you own. There are bags that replace other bags but fall short at doing certain things you wish they did. Well I can say from the short time working with this bag that may be a nice substitue to a shoulder bag and a backpack.

I will have a full hands on review coming up soon where I will show you the main features of the bag, how much it holds and if it is a must buy or not.

Here is the official description of the bag from Think Tanks web site

Think Tank Photo introduces the Sling-O-Matic, the photo industry’s first sling bag that can be easily switched back and forth to either shoulder. The Sling-O-Matic’s adjustable, fully padded shoulder strap “automatically” slides along a set of rails to change which shoulder the bag can be worn on. This is the innovative solution to the problem inherent with other sling bags: only being designed to wear the sling bag over the same shoulder. With one smooth motion, the Sling-O-Matic can be quickly switched to the opposite shoulder without losing the characteristics that have made sling bags popular among photographers. The Sling-O-Matic series offers three unique bags to choose from, depending on the set of photo gear a photographer needs to carry.

Super Secret Project Decisions

Jared Polin September 17, 2010 11

When a new camera gets announced like the Nikon D3100 and D7000 you start to think should I get it and move my camera? The honest truth is when you are just starting out and you are early in your 5 year plan you best bet is to learn the camera you have and invest in glass. When you reach that point where you are making money which should be around year 2 in your 5 year plan than you can start to think about the new body.

At this point you will have purchased better glass and that better glass will work extremely well on your NEW BODY. If you bought the new body every time it came out you wouldn’t have good glass and you would basically be throwing your money away.
