We Have A Winner!

Mobile devices have really changed how outdoor photographers research and scout locations, use their gear, and run their business’. I’ve been using an iPhone and iPad for a few years, so a post about my favorite apps is long overdue. I’m going to start with the iPhone in this post, and cover the iPad in the next.
Because I almost always have my iPhone with me, it has become a crucial field device in my landscape photography. I use apps that help me scout locations, calculate exposure times, predict weather and solar events, and track my gps coordinates.
I choose apps based on 3 criteria:
I don’t mind paying more for an app I find useful and adds to my creative work, so I’m not using price as a criteria here. Value is what its all about for me.
So based on that, here are my favorite apps in no particular order.
They’re Here. These Kibokos have been refurbished at the Gura Gear factory with the addition of two extra support stitches near the harness. These stitches were missed in the initial manufacture. That’s it! As good as new, with big savings, and Gura Gear’s full warranty!
In photography, the more failure there is, the better. I went out this morning and failed. I went out yesterday and failed. To be honest I haven’t succeeded in over three weeks, and I go out four to five times a week. That’s ok, success will come, and then I’ll have to start over again- that’s life. I stay up at night wondering if I really have what it takes to see this through to the end. Then the morning comes and I tell myself there’s no way in hell I’m giving up.

OK guys, this isn’t your normal review, but I cannot resist telling you all about this camera backpack.
As you know, we don’t really have sponsors here at Muench Workshops, and when we promote something, it’s simply because we love it. I’m going to tell you today about Gura Gear’s newest camera bag, the Bataflae. I’ve been using Gura Gear bags for a couple of years now. They were conceived and designed by my good friend Andy Biggs. Yeah, I know, many of you will first say, “what the eff, $450 for a camera bag????” I get it, I truly do.
Now let me tell you why that money is well spent.
