Breath taking images - The milky way.

November 11, 2016

Technically, 'good shots' have it all, composition and exposure are correct however they lack the "oh, damn" effect. Does this sound familiar in your photography? Perhaps I am just talking from a personal standpoint but I wonder why I can't take shots like these guys all the time? How do you execute and what is the recipe for coming home with the prize every time?

Read on to see how I photographed the Perseid meteor shower.

Vallerret_ composing a snowboard photo

October 26, 2015

When shooting snowboarding, a decent picture has to have at least some hint of movement and show the dynamic of snowboarding itself. Thus, composing a snowboard photo is important and you should try to apply the rules of composition to all your shots. To get a better understating of why composition is important in capturing the movement and dynamic, it helps to understand that the camera captures a scene differently to the way in which we view it.

    *This size guide is specific only to W's Nordic Photography Glove

      

    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 consider to go a 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 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 choose a liner size that is snug/tight on your hand for the best Fliptech performance when wearing liners and gloves together.
