We have another sighting of a HighKey camera strap on a Maasai woman. It's so great to see the effect photography can have bringing a community together, and the impact that the Big Picture Project is having there.
We have a sighting of the Massai tribe donning a HighKey camera strap. Looks like they’re having fun!
A recent batch of custom camera straps. The creativity with these is amazing, and it's a great way to promote your website or business. Keep them coming!

This Holiday Season, we’ve partnered with a non-profit organization called “The Big Picture Project” to provide custom camera straps to a Maasai community in Kenya Africa.
The Maasai people are a beautiful culture sought out by travelers for their dress and customs. “The Big Picture Project’s” goal is teaching photography to individuals in impoverished countries, like the Maasai, and giving them the opportunity to share their story.
This current project is building a School in Kenya for the Maasai community. The Big Picture Project is a registered 501c3 non-profit, and all donations are tax deductible. Please consider visiting their website and making a donation if you’re able this holiday season.
We’ll update with more pictures as they become available on the progress of the school.

We’re only offering our stock camera straps right now due to problems with our custom strap vendors. Check back in the coming months though as we are working on a different process to speed up delivery of the custom straps.

I just found these beautiful photographs created by the French photographer, Sacha Goldberger. I am totally in love. The lighting and toning is delightfully winsome and captivating. Meet Super Mamik... out to save the world.
Hello fellow photography enthusiasts! We've decided that we're going to start offering pretty cool (and actually useful) photography tips for all of our awesome friends. Not sure how often we'll do this - perhaps once per week?
Today's quick lesson is how to use the Gradient Map feature in Photoshop for a more vivid color photograph in two super easy steps.
We're going to use a photo I took last week of Air Force One taking off from Portland International Airport. It's such an amazing airplane, and you should've seen all the massive guys with even more massive guns roaming all over the place.
Here's our starting image:
The first step: in your 'Layers' panel, select 'Gradient Map'
That will turn your image black and white, but don't panic! Step two is to turn the Blending Mode from 'Normal' to 'Luminosity'
Voila! That's it! Here's the final image:
In two very easy steps, you've just turned a flat, not very interesting photograph into a well-saturated and eye popping photo worthy of something other than the trash can :)
Photo find of the day! Dan Mountford is a british graphic designer and photographer. His work is made ‘in camera' with double exposures... no layers or photo manipulation (except for color toning). His work is simply fantastic!
