using flash in the daylight

June 29, 2015

Bright snowy conditions are hard lighting environments that have the ability to create overexposed compositions with bright highlights and very dark shadows. A flash is a great tool to give your subject some “pop” and separate them from the background.

shoot the stars

June 15, 2015

To get photos published its often about shooting the right person and not just taking the best picture. Sad but true. Obviously, the picture has to be great as well, but I have better pictures that haven’t been published compared to the pics that made it to print, partly because the person was well known.

Ski trip to montana

June 09, 2015

The reason I decided to go to Mammoth was that I was talking to my friend Joakim, and we were both tired of the bad weather and all the stuff we had to do in school, and drifted away to how fun it would be to go skiing somewhere. So we kept talking and as it happened, we settled on Mammoth, CA!

Martin Bjorkqvist photography

March 12, 2015

Martin is a Swedish ripper and another dude that needs a continual fix from the slopes. You have to forgive the fact that he ski’s given his pictures make up for his insistence to strap two sticks instead of one to his feet (jokes), But seriously this guy sends it, both on skis and with the lens.

    Please note, our gloves are designed to fit snuggly to give you the best camera feel without compromising on warmth. If you prefer a looser fit, please size up.

    As we learn more and more about gloves we also learn that all hands are different. Some people have long skinny fingers and slim wrists, others have wide hands with short fingers.

    Our gloves wont fit all even with the right measurements from the sizing chart – but we try!

    What size should I get if I'm between sizes?

    For many, the best option will be to go up a size if your measurements are in between sizes.

    If you are between sizes or if your hands do not fit into the measurements on our sizing chart, we recommend prioritizing the fit for the girth measurement. The girth is the most important measurement and if you the girth size on the glove is too small, you won't be able to fit the glove.

    Should I size up for my liner glove?

    If you’re considering pairing a liner glove with your photography gloves, we recommend choosing the same size liner as photography glove. We designed our liners to be thin and fit inside of our photography gloves so we recommend your normal size in liners. There are two exceptions to this:

    Exception #1: If you are at the very end of the ratio size in the sizing chart, e.g. 1 mm from being a size Large, then we advise going up a glove size if you plan to often wear the liner with the gloves. 

    Exception #2: If your personal preference is to wear fairly loose gloves, then you should also go up a size when adding a liner. We don't recommend this as you will compromise dexterity with loose gloves and our priority is best possible camera feel. But you know best what you like!

    House tip: Make sure to chose a liner size that is snug/tight on your hand for the best Fliptech performance when wearing liners and gloves together.
