New Photo Tools Coming to a Store Near You

My friends at Lowepro have come up with a new series of photo backpacks that are geared towards the outdoor enthusiast and I have to tell that they look fantastic. These bags were really designed for people that are out there playing hard on the trail, hiking, riding, and even jogging to their favorite remote photo spots. The bags have a newly designed feature called the Ultra-Cinch Camera Chamber that allows you to put your camera in the bag and then cinch it down internally to keep it from shifting and bouncing while you are out doing your thing. They are also much lighter than conventional backpacks to help keep weight down to a minimum. The bags come in 2 sizes, the 200AW and 100AW, and have enough space for a camera kits and lots of personal goodies. There are a lot more features as well so head over to the Lowepro site and check it out.

Learning New Tricks -

These aren’t new products but I thought I would pass them along because who doesn’t like learning new stuff for free?

- Nik Software is hosting free webinars aimed at showing you how to get some amazing results in your photography using their plug-ins. Starting Tuesday, you can watch classes on things like Silver Efex Pro 2, Viveza 2, Color Efex Pro 3, and more. The events are free but attendance is limited so hurry and get yourself registered. Just follow this link for the schedule.

- Finally today, I wanted to pass along a very cool blog post from Frank Doorhof. Frank is an amazing photographer and made his debute at this past Photoshop World to rave reviews. He also does a lot of workshops and his blog is a fantastic source of inspiration and, as is the case in a current post, a lot of great tips and tricks. Check out how Frank creates realistic backgrounds for his photos without ever leaving the studio. It’s really great stuff. You can read the post and watch his videos here.

    Cool info – thanks for the Nik Software webinar tidbit! Also, as an FYI – Epson had an R1800 in between the R1900 and R1400 (I own one…)
