I love seeing basic gear capture solid images. It hammers home that it’s the photographer not the gear, most of the time.
In this case the photographer was working with some basic Nikon’s and doing a great job with what they had. What I look for in these critiques are a few solid images. When you come out with 6 or 7 solid images you are doing something right.
Just remember, if you think your camera is doing a terrible job taking photos, be sure to make you are not the one to blame first.
Here is my ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in response to Drew Simcox who nominated me from Antonelli Institute.
In addition to making a donation I want to challenge three photographers +1, Peter Hurley, Zack Arias, Scott Kelby and the plus one is Ken Rockwell. You guys have 24 hours to accept and complete this challenge.
ALS is one of the worst diseases so it’s important that if you are able to donate you make a donation. If you are not able to, please make your own Ice Bucket Challenge video to bring awareness. To Donate to please click here.
Peter accepted the challenge and posted this video.
This thing does so much you really have to just check out their Kickstarter Video and Page.
I have not backed many tech projects on Kickstarter for a bunch of different reasons but I decided to back the Miops, here’s why. First things first, it has LASERS!!!! How could I not find a use for a laser trigger or trigger trap. Second the ability to sense light and sound to trigger the camera totally got my gears turning.
Will this trigger make me more creative? The answer could be yes if I actually kick my own butt into gear and use it when I get it in the mail. Speaking of getting it in the mail, one of the reasons I have not backed a lot of tech projects is because you never know if they will actually deliver on their promise.
After doing some research into the company behind the MIOPS, I saw that they already have a product for sale on the market called the NERO Trigger. I can’t say that the Miops is a generation two product but it does seem like an evolution.
With the addition of an iOS and Android app to control the device, I think they have something fun and useful. Regular triggers would run you anywhere from $50-$150, but not offer you nearly as much as what you can get from this $199 device.
Even if this is not for you, check out their Kickstarter page and sample video.
Would you like to see me discuss more kickstarter projects in the future?
