    cut proof should sling

    I understand what you are saying to some degree. However, my personal experience is that most pic pockets will not engage in a stabbing and those that will, simply DO SO without bothering to cut the strap first. About the second there is not much you can do if they go that route from the back...

    Santorini, Athens and Jerusalem trip equipement list

    Santorini, Athens and Jerusalem trip equipement list

    HI, I was asking about the cards not so much because of price but storage space. I rarely shoot in raw but I thought that I would try it and wanted to get a feel for what I should expect for the number of pics. I tend to favor 1 larger card over multiple smaller ones as they are less likely...

    Just because you have over 20 years experience doesn't mean you're good.

    The mistake that people make is that they equate 1 year of experience repeated twenty times to 20 years of experience This is NOT the same thing!

    how to create this kind of lighting

    HI, I really like this effect in portraits and have seen it a number of times, but can not figure out how to re create it. I always end up with something that is totally over or under exposed. Any suggestions? http://photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=6936490
