Charlie’s Story, What’s In The Bags, Arca Swiss Gear Head
and Piano, Prints and Studio
We continue our Shooting With The Master Series with 4 more videos. Today’s videos finish up our shooting on location and we end up at Charlie’s house with a tour of his studio. We’ll have another 2 sets of videos after today’s series focusing on printing.
Charles is an interesting gentleman and his story is interesting and inspiring. In this video, you’ll learn how Charles got into photography. His original interest and focus were playing the piano. His entry into photography was not something he planned.
Mentioned in the video . . .
What’s In The Bags
Let’s take a look at Charlies bag as well as mine. We do have one camera in common too.
The Arca-Swiss Gear Head
I have been a big fan of the Arca Swiss Cube head for a long time. The Cube allows you to to do fine adjustments and movements of your camera through a finely machined set of gears. Charlie shows us the modern day version of this, The Arca-Swiss Gear Head D4. Oh, how sweet it is. After using this head and seeing how versatile and light it is I am totally hooked and will be adding this to my gear bag early next year.
Charlie’s Piano, Prints, and Studio
We move from the field to Charles home and studio. We start the tour in Charlie’s living room where we see his Mason-Hamlin Grand Piano and listen to him tease us with a few chords. We then go out back and get a tour of the studio we will be spending the next set of videos in.
We hope you enjoyed this segment of the Shooting With The Masters.
