For everyone that asks about my gear, check out  my review of the #Induro  CT-214 Carbon Fiber Tripod

#photogear   #tripod   #photoblog   #carbonfiber  
DISCLAIMER: I do not blindly recommend that people buy photo gear because someone recommended it. However since a lot of people ask me what gear I use, I thought i'd show what I use and why I chose it. Also note that I am writing this review long after I have purchased the item in order to give an accurate review on how the product performs after extensive use.    When looking for photo gear, I get into my super meticulous/gotta-get...

Check out the new blog post where I talk about beginner's #flash  photography and pay hommage to +Roy Hubbard  adn +Gary Fong 
I used to be a "Natural Light Photographer". I used to shun the use of flashes because of the harsh highlights they produced and fake look it gave to people in photos. I vowed to never use flashes.....because I had no clue how to use them. Secretly, I would look at photos that were shot with flashes and wonder how the hell those photographers go the shot to look so good. I watched some videos, but they were so technical that it sounded ...

I am a frequent shopper at Adorama. While most people shop at B&H because the store is bigger and has more on display, I go to Adorama because they actually answer my questions. I have done research for weeks on a lens when I start asking questions about it, the employee usually knows everything I have researched and more without even touching the computer. I have been there many times to ask a ton of questions and left without buying anything. Every time I come back, I am still given excellent customer service. I have actually even been talked out of purchases that would be a waste of my money. If you e-mail questions or requests in advance, they are always responded to. I don't see much of a price difference between this store and B&H, but Adorama has more kit sales and often gives out free accessories with a major purchase. If you're going to visit, grab a "Lighting" ticket. Any of these guys will be able to make you leave that store fully understanding whatever it is you wanted to know about.

Going to B&H will give you a different feeling every time you leave. On the upside, the store is very big, has a great selection of products to look at and try. Some of the people there are very friendly and I will say that I have never felt like I was being "sold" anything. On the downside, sometimes you have to wait on really long lines to ask for information or try out a product that is behind the counter. It's a shame that there are times when you ask a simple question about a product and the response is I don't know. One gentle behind the counter where the Fuji cameras are told a friend of mine to go read the manual before he could even finish asking his question. Rude! We both went and got brand new Fujis from Adorama for the same price and both came with free gifts. Not all of the people are rude there. Some are very patient, there's just quite a few bad apples there who could use an etiquette lesson.
