Random thought's about photography, and equipment related to it.

Gear You Might Want to Consider

  I know, myself included, that we can get very hung up in the Camera gear for our photographic adventures.  But how often do we think of the support gear?  Things like clothing, bags, cleaning supplies, etc.    For instance, as I frost bit my hands when I was young, they have since been very affected by cold.  But trying to shoot with big gloves on. Is trying at best.  Solution, a pair of Military surplus gloves liners.  I picked these up at a local surplus store many years ago, so they do last, plus you can still wear a thicker glove or mitt to keep warmer between shoots.   And you also might make out a hand warmer pocket on the back.

  Another important area of our bodies when exposed to the elements tends to be the feet.  I admit, I'd rather be wearing athletic shoes then just about any other type of shoe.  And when driving any distance I hate wearing boots, its just not comfortable.  But then of course you get there, and see you have to travesty some low water or snow, not good, right?  Well yesterday while visiting some fellow photographers web sites, on Rick Sammon site, in his gear area he mentions overshoes called Neo's.  After checking them out, it looks like a great thing to carry in the car when needed, or in your luggage on a trip.  I ordered a pair, be sure to follow there sizing suggestions on there site, you can check them out here: http://www.overshoesneos.com/index.html
