When I’m working my way through a woods or field looking for subjects, my eyes are scanning for contrast. I’m looking for subjects that have contrast in colors, or light and dark.
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.

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.
We all know how important back up is, don’t we? You certainly don’t need me to tell you how critical it is to make regular backups of your data, to multiple locations, on and off site, and to test your backups on a regular basis. If you are not doing this, then you are taking a huge risk that can easily be mitigated with today’s advanced backup technologies.
I’ve used many different backup strategies over the years, and tried different scenarios in order to keep my personal and professional data safe. As they say, it is only a matter of time, not if, but when. And I have lost data in the past, either because my backup strategy wasn’t robust enough, or because it was too complicated and difficult to do regularly. I’ve simplified things drastically recently, so I wanted to share my current system and why it works for me.
I recently had the pleasure of visiting my friend Chris Klapheke at Outdoor Photo Gear, in Louisville, Kentucky. After a few hours catching up, we decided to do a quick video to show you some of the gear that I use from OPG.
I display a number of shortlinks for the products we look at as the video progresses, but I’ll list them all after the video too.
Chris also gave us an incredibly generous 10% discount by using the code MBP10 until Sept 2012, so if any of this stuff, or anything else from Outdoor Photo Gear’s line up appeals to you, now is the time to pick it up!
Don’t forget to select the HD version under the cog-wheel in the video settings and go full screen, to enjoy the video to the fullest.
