My Sixth sense

My Sixth sense

I used to work with the best photographer in Paris and the Caribbean. Already then, so much of my time was spent doing what remains a key element of my job: "designing images".

Living in the Caribbean, where the sky is always blue and the light is always perfect, has helped me enhance my own photography with the gifts of nature.

But this is just the beginning: I derive so much pleasure from being behind my Canon.

I just bought this new toy then I need to spend more time, however the first tests of outside panoramics are awesome. The 303SPH is a multi-row (spherical) panoramic photography head. It has sliding plates to position the camera over the panoramic axis of rotation, plus a sliding plate which rotates around the front/back tilt axis.
