Wildlife and nature photography is certainly a niche market but it turns out to be bigger than many think. According to our contributing photographers in this month’s column, photos of nature and wildlife can be sold for a broad range of uses, including stock, editorial, book publishing, interior design, fine art, and even assignment. Other important questions we ask our wildlife and nature photographers this month include what does it take to make your passion for these subjects a business? How do you market and promote your images?

The Cokin 58mm PURE Harmonie Variable Density Neutral Gray Filter: A variable ND filter that provides a reduction of about 1 to 8 stops. The 0.3 to 2.4+ (ND2-ND300) density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture (or slower shutter speed) than normally required. Control the degree of density by rotating the front filter ring. For easier, repeatable control over density settings, the front ring is also visually demarcated with dots that represent one stop of neutral density.

The EVERCLEAR 5 Coating Technology is a multi-layered anti-reflective coating applied to the filter substrate in order to maintain effective light transmission and suppress surface reflections and flar—the coating provides protection against water, oil, dust, soil, and scratches. This optical glass filter is set in a thin aluminum ring, which measures just 9.5mm-thick. This slender profile is ideally suited for use with wide-angle lenses in order to lessen vignetting. The suggested retail price is $108.99.

Graava is a unique new video camera that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and built-in sensors to automatically edit your videos. Countless hours of video are shot every day and most of that footage goes to waste because most of us don’t have the time or the proper tools to edit it. Graava solves that problem because it was built to shoot seamlessly and edit the footage for us.

Gadget bags and photo backpacks comes and go. There are many reasons; styles change, materials improve; competitors rip off designs and build cheaper clones. Sometimes manufacturers develop “cost down” models to lower production costs and increase profits. But sometimes bags stick around for years and evolve into stronger, lighter, cooler and all-around better products. Lowepro decided to improve a very popular and good selling line, the Lowepro Photo Sport AW (All Weather) Backpack series. It takes a lot of nerve to try to improve upon a favorite. Did they succeed? Let’s find out
