I recommend the Composer Pro with either the Sweet 35 or Sweet 50 optic. I am also a big fan of the Velvet 56. It is so much fun!
Singh-Ray Filters – I am proud to be a Singh-Ray Ambassador. For me, they are simply the best filters made. Use the code BARCLAY10 for a 10% discount.
Hoodman – The best memory cards in the business hands down. Of course their famous HoodLoupe is terrific and is now collapsable! And, they now have some great Drone gear too.
Why Hoodman? Because they have a lifetime warranty on their memory cards and will recover lost images for free and send you a new card. Great customer service, THAT’S WHY!
Amazon – This link is to my Amazon Storefront. I have a few pages where I share primarily photography products I use and love, books I recommend, and more. I have one page dedicated books for our “Contemplative Photography Retreat”
Click on the link and shop as you normally do on Amazon. Same prices, but I get a small commission for sending you to Amazon! Thank you!
Mindshift – Highly recommend!
ThinkTank and MindShift are one and the same company. The Mindshift 26L and 36L are my “go to” bags and I adore them! I love the easy access and amount of gear I can carry. The 26L is perfect for the mirrorless camera shooter while the 36L might be better for the DSLR shooter. Highly recommended! Use this LINK and receive a choice of a free item at checkout. Some really nice choices too!
Lumenzia – Luminosity Masking is an excellent tool to use in Photoshop create smooth selections based on luminosity values. There are a few products that do this but I have found Lumenzia to be the most straightforward to use. Greg has some excellent tutorial to help you get up and running. You might consider his bundles that give you extra training videos. They are worth the extra cost and will be discounted if you purchase them together.
Luminar 4 from Skylum Software – Highly recommend software!
Luminar 4 is my newest goto plug-in. The AI Enhance slider is magical and the new AI Sky Replacement is revolutionary! This is pretty awesome software!
