Sorry for the absence!

As we wrap up the UnitedHealthcare Project this week, we are heading right back into another for Volkswagen. I was hoping to start posting some of the imagery from UHC, maybe some before and after images of the retouching, but alas it will have to wait another week until we are past this next project.
Sorry that posts have been so few and far in-between, but we are hoping to get back on track soon!

Meantime you can check out a few of the UHC images at the main web site by going to > Portfolios > Recent > #’s 8-16…. or clicking here.

Tripod Too

So in addition to the new Tripod Head that we purchased we also picked up a new Tripod. Our trusty Gitzo that we have had since 1988 has served us well an frankly is still a perfectly good tripod (eBay – here it comes) but it was time to upgrade, for one main reason. Our old tripod is a tank. As in “Very Sturdy”, but it weighs as much as one as well. And frankly we carry around so much gear that any way we can lighten the load we are going to take advantage of! So when we picked up the new Tripod Head we also got a Gitzo GT3540XLS which is code for a Carbon Fiber Tripod. It is a bit longer than our old one but a bit smaller in circumference. But the biggest difference is weight! The new tripod is SO MUCH LIGHTER! It also has new locking mechanisms on the legs which makes it easier to extend the legs. And last but not least it extends much higher then the old one.
