I have packed and will leave early in the morning for the annual photo trip to Downeast Maine: which I will be cold leading with my colleague John.  My main aspect of the trip will be helping up participants to use their camera and lenses and to help them think out-of-the-box.  I have a Think Tank Trifecta 10 Backpack to carry my gear.  What I like about this backpack is that I can carry a camera with a lens attached plus at least two additional lenses.  Right now I have a D 7100 with a Nikon 80-400 mm lens attached plus a wide angle and chart telephoto lens, in addition to the usual accessories.  The backpack is well-built and is comfortable to wear.  My D 810 with a 70-200 mm F/2.8 can replace the D 7100 and the 80-400 mm lens.  All the rest of my equipment is being carried in a Think Tank Airport Roller Derby.  Right now you can buy the Think Tank Trifecta and get a free gift along with it.

There has been for a long time information on the web about tuning your lenses to make sure they are correctly focusing.  Joseph Cristina has designed the focus pyramid, which is a easy way to calibrate your lenses plus it is on sale right now for $24.95.  It comes with easy to follow directions and a link for a video to help you.
While I am in Downeast Maine, I will be posting photographs on my Facebook page Photo Bee 1 Photographing the Natural World Around Us.  When I return I will have some updated blogs to send to you.
