    Last week I posted a field report review of Hoodman's RAW UDMA high-speed memory cards, and in my report I mentioned that while the cards performed flawlessly for me, and were fast as blazes, I couldn't find a reason to justify their higher cost vs. similar size and speed Lexar and SanDisk cards (the Hoodman RAW cards run $70 to $80 more per card). Yesterday, I heard from Lou Schmidt, VP of Marketing over at Hoodman Corporation, who sent this response to my review. I'm publishing his comments in their entirety below, but to cut to the chase, I called out in red why they're more expensive, which told me exactly why they're worth every extra penny. Here's what Lou had to say: "Thanks for the fine review of our Hoodman RAW CF cards… Thanks too for giving us the opportunity to explain why…

    Last week, on my way to work, I returned a call from my buddy Joe McNally. Joe answers and we BS for just a minute, and then he tells me that he can't really talk long because he's in the middle of doing a book signing at Borders Bookstore. Of course, I apologize for interrputing his signing, but he says, "Hold on a for a sec" and then I hear the sound of shutter buttons. He tells me he just had a photo taken of him during the signing, because he wanted me to see that right behind him was a display with both my and Matt Kloskowski's books (you can see the orange corner of my Lightroom book behind Joe's shoulder, in the shots above by Stephen Hindley). Anyway, I told him I'd let him go, but before I hung up, I asked…

    Just when you think the intense fear of tripod's has gone as far as it can go, this happens: Matt, RC, and I went for an early morning shoot at Grand Central Station yesterday, and each of us carried that most-hated of photographic accessory; the dreaded tripod. We had a special shooting permit to use tripods in the station (more on this later this week), but it was what happened after the shoot that took things to a new level. After the shoot, we came back to our hotel, the Marriott Marquis in Times Square, to put up our gear so I could head over to B&H Photo for my class at 10:00 am. As we headed into the elevator to go up to our rooms, a uniformed security guard came rushing over and stopped us. He wanted to know where we were going,…

    If you're a regular here, you know I've been shooting food lately in preparation for my wife's upcoming cookbook, and after looking at many of the leading food photographers, my wife and I both decided that the one guy whose work really stood out was New-York based photographer Lou Manna. I was thinking how much I'd love to get a chance to learn from this guy, and so I took a chance; went to Google and typed in "Lou Manna" + Workshop. 10 seconds later I'm looking at a description of his next Digital Food Photography workshop, and about five minutes after that, I had signed up for his upcoming May 4th class, and was making flight arrangements to New York. Well, yesterday I took his workshop and I was just blown away at what I learned. So much so, that after about the…

    Greetings from 37,000 feet, seat 14C, aboard jetBlue flight 23 (by the way; the legroom on jetBlue flights is really fantastic). This week I wanted to post a quick installment of NAPP News, the video update that NAPP's Executive Director Larry Becker posts each week on the NAPP member home page. Larry launched this weekly video update to let NAPP members know about new member discounts and special deals, along with any breaking industry news, news about the site; the forums, and basically anything to help members get the most from their membership. Take a quick minute or two and check out this week's installment (below), and then catch "Larry TV" each week on the member home page.
