I have just been checking up on the new Aquatech blimp…….. Still says on their web site that tubes are yet to come… so we are still waiting!!! But another interesting development. I met a fellow the other day who is about to launch a new Blimp. …. Designed by a camera man for camera man. He has promised a trial version. So may name is on the list for sure. It is amazing 30 + years and only one make on tem market and now there could be three. Although nothing has quite materialized yet other than the Aquatech Body…. But no Tubes!! as 70% + of the sound comes down the lens barrel….. Perhaps they are struggling with??? Or not!!!??? Any way for the time being I have my 100% reliable thoroughly tried and tested Jacobson blimp…. On another blimp related issue: Blimp Ghosting i shall call it. Think on this: Lots of glass in a cameras lens…… Another filter on blimp front…… The Chip in a digital camera =reflections and ghosting images especially when you have bright highlights behind the subject such as bright windows…. Lamps……… and candles………. annoying but no real answer…..
For over twenty five years I have earned a good living from photography. I have never been put off by the chorus of those questioning my photographic ambitions. I’ve just got on and done it. As a photographer I have travelled the world, met hundreds of fascinating people, and been to some extraordinary places. The satisfaction gained from seeing my work published cannot be equated in financial worth but rather serves to confirm my own self belief and determination to conquer my insecurities. Never take no for an answer!
