Custom SLR Air Strap and Hand Strap Get Top Ratings from 1KIND Photography

We love hearing what you think about our products. Recently the Air Strap and Hand Strap got great reviews on 1kindphotography.com. Check out what they had to say:

 

Air Strap

“If you're not the type of person that feels comfortable hanging a camera upside down from the tripod screw mount, I highly suggest getting the Air Strap. Why strangle yourself or subject yourself to being uncomfortable when you can still attach the strap like the OEM straps and make it much more comfortable."

Hand Strap

“Overall, the Custom SLR Hand Strap is lightweight, flexible and most importantly comfortable. It's soooo comfortable that it is replacing my Herringbone Heritage hand strap."

Think playing on a Major League Baseball team is only a dream? Think again. For one week each year, a few lucky people get to train and play with the Atlanta Braves--and photographer Chris Garrison gets to photograph it all.

After shooting the Atlanta Braves Spring Training Fantasy Camp 2014, Garrison gives a behind-the-scenes look at what it was like to have full access to the locker rooms, the baseball field, and even the pitcher’s mound. He had the unique challenge of shooting 75 portraits in less than 35 minutes, all while enduring early-morning wakeup calls, random gusts of wind, and a fast-paced schedule.
