“Have Blimp, Will Travel” That used to be the “shout out” to all the publicists and producers who hire set photographers for their feature films and TV series produced in Ontario, both Northern and Southern. I say, “used to,” as with the advent of mirrorless cameras and the electronic shutter, the SLR silenced by the blimp is becoming both redundant and anachronistic.  I divide the Province in two as Northern Ontario, most notably Sudbury and North Bay, as they have…

Happy Labor Day, Everybody! – Scott Kelby’s Photoshop Insider – Photography Article

That’s technically a slider. You need to order three or four. It’s a Federal law.
