Never has the old adage “a picture is worth a 1,000 words” echoed so loudly as when you are trying to lose weight. Before I began this journey to become healthier I tried my best to stay away from cameras. It is said that a camera will add 5-10 pounds to a person’s looks. I felt it was more like 20-30 pounds.
Shortly after joining “the program”, I received my first email from my personal health coach Amy. She gave me all of her contact information so I could contact her whenever I needed. I’ve decided if I ever want to become a stalker I am going to go out and join diet web sites and get people’s information. Not only do you have access to people they are likely in better shape than you are.
At first I thought this was the standard welcome message then I realized that this email had a purpose. Attached at the bottom of the email were three documents. I had to go back and re-read the message to find out that I actually had homework!
When I first purchased my Gitzo Series 3 monopod I needed a head to hold the camera. At the time I selected a Really Right Stuff BH-40 mid-sized ball head. The ball head was amazing and was perhaps the finest engineered photography accessory I have ever seen in my life.
It works perfectly securing the camera or the lens. The only issue I have with it is the fact that it is too versatile for what I need. The BH-40 was designed to be a tripod ball head. It is designed to adjust on any axis.
Recently I wrote about the WordPress plug-in Yet Another Photo Blog which I used to create my 1Photo2Share photo blog. This plug-in is amazing and provides all the functionality to create a very professional photo blog.
It’s interesting how the migration of photography from film to digital has changed the way we take and share pictures. During the film era I was very judicious of what I took pictures of. After all, I only had 24 or 36 shots per roll so I had to be careful in deciding what would be captured. It was always hit or miss as to whether the shot I just took would turn out the way I wanted or if it would be yet another failed attempt to capture what was in my mind’s eye.
