Photos from the Island Paradise Okinawa (Podcast 349)

Today for the first time in a while, I'm going to walk you through my thinking as I made a number of photographs during my extended stay in Okinawa recently, after completing the first Pixels 2 Pigment workshop that I did down on that beautiful island. I flew into Okinawa...

    I am looking farward to your review on the really right stuff 5Diii L plates + 34L tripod. Having all 3 myself I can say when I first opened out my tripod for the first time, I thought Oh my god! His is one tall tripod… Great for looking over fences and bushes, the leveling base is easy to set up too. My L plate has not moved, not once on my 5D3 and I am never taking it off my camera, connecting the camera via wires to a computer, the L plate is never in the way too. And who said Carbon fiber where light?

      Hi Alistair,

      I’m running behind due to my workshop over the weekend, but the RRS review will be out over the next couple of days.

      The 34L is one big tripod, but I have a few reasons why I like a big tripod, that I’ll talk about. I agree that it’s not the lightest tripod either, but if it was made from metal it would way a ton!

      Stay tuned!

    Martin. The world makes sense when you explain things. I wish I had your clarity of mind and communication–photographic and verbal. Chopo

    Great set of images Martin!

    Especially “Alligators Back” which has a very mythical feel about it 🙂
