In my roundup of LED flashlights for photographers, I talked a little bit about the benefit of having a light with a red (or green or blue) LED for preserving night vision. Two of the Coast flashlights I use regularly have this feature, the PX20 and the TX10. I like these lights very much, but Read more... you know you want to.
In Part One, I talked about all the features a photographer should look for in a flashlight. If you haven’t read it, please do so before reading this one. It contains important stuff you need to know. Here, I’m going to name names and make specific recommendations. First, full disclosure. Yes, I offer all the flashlights discussed Read more... you know you want to.
Today Nikon announces a replacement to the old and less-than-stellar 80-400f/4.5-5.6 VR lens. You may recall me giving Nikon a hard time back in January for announcing an 800 f/5.6 lens, which cost as much as a new car, instead of addressing the pleas from the Nikon faithful for something in the 100-400mm range. Well, Nikon, Read more... you know you want to.
Um, hello. My name is Kevin Adams and I’m a flashaholic. I don’t remember the first time that I admitted to myself that I was addicted to flashlights.

The video features over two hours of photo instruction, including post processing waterfall photos. http://youtu.be/M9ZkiX1qchE
I think I do a pretty good job of paying attention to detail. I consider every little possibility and I don’t push the shutter button until I’m positive that everything is set up properly. Some might even say I’m obsessive about it. (My wife uses another word.) But try as I might, I haven’t been Read more... you know you want to.
My friend Drew Eschbacher says I haven’t mastered the concept of the three-paragraph blog post and as a result lose some readers along the way. He’s right, and this post will only reconfirm his assessment. You are welcome to scroll down to the end for the conclusion, but you just might miss something important if Read more... you know you want to.
Harvey Broome, a Knoxville attorney who helped found The Wilderness Society, once said, “I have never wanted to leave the top of a mountain.” I was thinking of Broome’s comment last week while on Mount LeConte in the Smokies. Of all the mountains I've been on the top of, LeConte is unique. Like any mountain Read more... you know you want to.
Please read Part One first, so you know what being a Triprostitute is all about. Until recently, my workhorse tripod and travel tripod were Gitzos, same as with many of you. Mine are the old kind, with legs that rotate so you have to extend and retract them in the right order. I never did get Read more... you know you want to.
