Review: Lowepro Passport Sling

Camera Bag or Everyday Fashion Item?

Review By: Tristan Hall & Rikki Hibbert

Now don’t you worry, I am not going to pretend to know something about fashion or the coffee club culture but this review is going to have a twist. To try offer a balanced perspective, Rikki is going to be our more fashionable, female and should we say modern reviewer, while I, Tristan will apply the more conservative… perhaps typically South African male point of view.

Review: RS-W1 Black Rapid Camera Sling – Designed for a Woman’s body

BlackRapid Inc is the brainchild of professional photographer Ron Henry, as a solution to tangled camera straps, neck pain and to improve speed of use. The RS-W1 camera sling goes one step further – the S-shape strap is specially designed to fit the female body. You know what I mean – it fits snugly between our… assets!

The actual strap is soft and padded and rests on your shoulders rather than your neck, effectively transferring the weight of your camera to a much more comfortable position.

Equipment Review: Gary Fong Lightsphere Cloud

The Gary Fong Lightsphere Cloud is a diffuser that fits onto almost any camera flash, and is an item that no event or wedding photographer should be without. Other diffusers on the market merely direct the light, whereas the Gary Fong Lightsphere Cloud illuminates the entire room, mimicking ambient lighting, and produces soft, flattering light.

So how does it work?
Bouncing your flash off the ceiling produces diffused light, but sometimes, depending on your surroundings, this is not always possible. This is where the Gary Fong Lightsphere Cloud makes all the difference…

The majority of the light goes towards the ceiling, however, the bowl (the Tupperware-looking part) is also illuminated, creating an additional light source. Together, this creates a combination of bounce flash, with the benefits of fill in flash.

Recycle Reuse & Repurpose

Glass Jar Photo Frames05-step-5

In South Africa, recycling is a way of life that not very many people incorporate into their daily routine. Partly because we do not have the facilities or many places that offer this service, but mainly because most people are too lazy to think about what happens to their rubbish once they toss it in the bin.

So instead of carelessly dumping your trash, one of the ways you can help give used things a second life, is to reuse your glass jars, and use them as novelty photo frames.
