Vanguard Alta Fly Series Review

One of the most daunting things to do as a photographer is to travel with your expensive gear. There have been moments that I carried a bag of gear worth more than the car that dropped me off at the airport! That’s a pretty serious stress point as you navigate […]

LAOWA 12mm f/2.8 ‘Zero-D’ lens – The world’s widest f-2.8 rectilinear lens

Introduction I came to the conclusion that this lens is a “Game Changer” after shooting with this lens for just a few minutes and anyone who tries it out will agree. The phrase “Zero-D” that is used in all conversations regarding this lens. If I am not mistaken, this is […]

Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD Review

TritonFlash Review – Portability

The first thing that will strike you about a Photoflex TritonFlash when you first see it is how small it is. I’m probably not alone in saying that as a Photographer I don’t want to carry heavy gear but I also don’t want to compromise my creative capabilities. Up until […]
