We Tried It
Red Wing Quick Stand
Let me state right at the
beginning of this piece that I am not an equipment freak. But like most
photographers, I do get excited about gear that can help me do my job
better or do something I couldn't do before. That excitement is
usually reserved for lenses--long, wide, fast, zoom, soft focus, etc.
Some of the more mundane items in photography--tripods, light stands,
posing stools, bags, and other hardware--are must have items, but our
purchasing decision is usually based on size, weight, and other very
practical parameters. There just isn't much new that usually happens
with this type of equipment.
