Manfrotto interview — How to choose a tripod
The last time I went to a camera show, there were literally hundreds of tripod options -- sturdy ones, colorful ones, tiny ones, 12-foot ones. How do you make sense of all of that and choose the tripod that's right for you? That's the question I asked Manfrotto representative Charles Caves.
In our first interview, Charles shares his approach to finding a tripod.
HONY raises more than $1 million from one photo to send kids to college.
The photo shoot started as a chance encounter. Brandon Stanton of Humans of New York photographed Vidal Chastanet, an 8th grader from a rough Brooklyn neighborhood.
The story went viral, and with all that attention, Brandon decided to do some good. He established a crowdfunding campaign and has raised more than $1 million to send the students to Harvard.
Check out this story from MSNBC.
We often think about doing this kind of good is reserved for the extreme circumstances. You might say, “I’d love to do something like that, but I don't have 12 million followers.”
It doesn't mean you can't change your world. We talked about that during one of our webinars.
Brandon started just like you and I — just someone who loved taking pictures. He just kept shooting because he enjoyed it. What resulted allowed him to change a bit of his world.
The photos you take for fun can lead to something significant. Just keep shooting.
