Been using Beme for some time now. Not convinced of its value yet. What do you think?

Having A Nomadic Photography Business

I received a fantastic question recently. One that I never thought I would ever receive, all about being a nomad and photographer, running a business.  

Read the Q&A at http://buff.ly/1LCOTHn

I am not a nomad. In fact, I live in New Jersey with my wife and daughter - and although I love traveling, I couldn't imagine myself ever being a nomad.  But... I do have something to say on the topic.

Oh, the beauty of the #AskScottWyden series! :-)

#AskScottWydenFilm In A Digital World

Today’s question caught me off guard. Maybe it shouldn't have, but it did.  If you have considered film then this might be a worthwhile question and answer for you to read.

"Do you see any value in the use of film, either 35 or medium format, in a digital world?"

Read my answer in its entirety at https://scottwyden.com/film-digital-world/

For Sale: Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 US Series, Caps, Hood + Box

I am selling my Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 lens with front and rear caps, lens hood and the original box.

I just need to get the box out of my garage :-)

I am only selling because I have determined I rarely use the lens wider than 5.6 and I now have the 24-120 f/4 VR so I no longer need the 24-70 since I'm not really taking advantage of its 2.8 aperture.

The lens is in fantastic shape, and went in to Nikon for a tune-up through NPS about a year ago. Nothing was wrong with it, but I sent it to be sure all was ok, since it was my workhorse. 

Lens does show signs of use (on rubber) but the glass is fantastic.

This was my workhorse lens, but I mostly use primes now unless I need the 24-120 for something.

Looking for $1500 + $20 for shipping - USA ONLY

PayPal (gift) and Square Cash (preferred) accepted.

Main Street Bridge in Jacksonville

When you have limited time, and no tripod, you make the best of the situation. 

I made a lot of photographs in the 30 minute walk I had along the water in Jacksonville.  Only one stands out. Only one I am very proud of.

The 60 minute event will cover all the tools you might need for shooting out in the elements, with an in-depth look at how to achieve certain techniques with Scott's favourite gear.

After the 60 minute presentation there will be a 30 minute Q&A session where Scott will answer your related questions, aiming to equip each listener with plenty of details to help them get started in travel photography.

Affordable and top quality! Rich came to our house and explained the products and service efficiently, and clearly. He made it easy for anyone to understand. The install was fairly quick, maybe 3 hours total with one person. We have a small house so we didn't need much. But we paid for some add-ons which work great as well. I set off the alarm accidentally at first, and the call center was on top of it. So far so good, and we couldn't be happier with GPS!
