F-Stop Gear Pulls the Plug on KitSentry, Won’t Refund Backers

Backers of the KitSentry Kickstarter by F-Stop Gear are out of luck. Just days after an in-depth report that claimed the company is "falling apart at the seams," F-Stop Gear has officially announced that KitSentry will never be, and seems to have no way of reimbursing backers back.

Cokin’s ‘NUANCES’ Neutral Density Filters Promise No Infrared Pollution

Review: f-stop’s Ajna is a Tough Modular Camera Bag for World Exploration

There are a limited number of backpacks that we would recommend taking on a journey if you decided to head to the Arctic circle or the Amazon rainforest. The range of available camera bags from f-stop seem to be designed for the pure purpose of rough adventuring, and it may just be a contender. We received a chance to test out their latest Mountain Series bag, the Ajna, and we had quite a journey.

F-Stop Gear Is Creating a Camera Backpack Designed Specifically for Women

With the exception of color choices, more often than not, photography gear is designed to be unisex. This isn’t inherently an issue, but when it comes down to it, there’s no denying that male and female bodies differ from one another in certain respects.

It would make sense, then, that wearable gear be designed to reflect these differences, right? F-Stop Gear thinks so, which is why they've decided to design a camera bag built specifically for women.

Eight ‘Life in Focus’ Miniseries Episodes to Jumpstart Your Motivation

We introduced you to F-Stop Gear's 'Life in Focus' miniseries when it first debuted back in April. Since then, eight more inspirational episodes of the series have aired, and since we neglected to share them one by one over the last eight months, we thought we'd share them all here as a sort of motivational kick in the pants to end the year on.

It’s Not About The F-Stop!

Last year I did a lecture about how to get commercial assignments by photographing and promoting personal photography projects at the Event Space at B&H Photo in NYC. It was a wonderful lecture discussing how to come up with tests shoots that are artistic, enjoyable to shoot, and could be marketable to potential clients. Most of the images I was showing that day were from a portrait project I had shot a couple years earlier which ended up getting me some great advertising jobs. The portraits I was showing were very much about personality and were by no means a great technical feat being that they were shot in the studio on a black background.
