Michael Ward's Last Shot: MeFOTO Instagram Weekly Winner

  by Colleen Carlisle-Nicholas       Category Fun, Giveaway, Night Photography       Tags giveaway, MeFOTO SideKick360, Instagram giveaway, iPhoneographer, Iphone adapter, smartphone adapter

Michael Ward, our second SideKick360 winner, has an interesting profession. He paints shoes.  Really! Working with a brush and painting freehand, Michael creates one-of-a-kind custom designs for each of his customers. He says people often come to him with ideas for their "Holy Grail" of shoes and it's his job to get that idea out of their heads and onto a pair of sneakers, dress shoes, pumps, etc.

Though most of what Michael photographs is his artwork, he took a break recently and hit the road for some photographic experimentation:

"I had bought a Canon S95, and decided to take it to Vegas to flex it's muscles and experiment with some settings I had studied, but never had the opportunity to use on a camera of my own. After a whole night of shooting Vegas signs, cars and casinos, it was time to call it a night. As we left the Mirage, I saw this gorgeous car in the parking lot. My friends were in a hurry, but I had to hold up the group to get one last shot. And here it is!" - Michael

Jan Klingberg's Hong Kong Street Cat: MeFOTO Instagram Weekly Winner

  by Colleen Carlisle-Nicholas       Category Giveaway, Travel Photography, Fun       Tags MeFOTO Giveaway, MeFOTO Backpacker, Graffiti, Hong Kong, street art

Apparently, cat graffiti abounds on Hong Kong's inner city streets. Something 1/10/14 BackPacker winner, Jan Klinberg, found on a recent business trip there.

"I was traveling to Hong Kong for work and I had only one free day, so I decided to explore the island a bit. I was walking between Victoria Peak and Man Mo Temple when I came across this alleyway with the graffiti and found the imagery strangely compelling. Got down low and snapped the shot. I really liked the grittiness of the alley juxtaposed with the childlike qualities of the cat graffiti." - Jan

Happy Halloween from MeFOTO

  by Domenick Delfino       Category Fun       Tags halloween

Our world is a colorful place, particularly in the fall; filled with bountiful, vibrant, and spectacular colorful experiences.  MeFOTO provides colorful and compact gear for photographers with imaginative personalities.  In the spirit of Halloween, we would like to invite you (if you dare) to join Brian a.k.a. Mr. MeFOTO and Rachel a.k.a. Shutterbug on their pumpkin shaving journey.   

 Now, you may be wondering what the difference between pumpkin carving and shaving is.  Pumpkin carving is typically the first technique that comes to mind when thinking of crafting pumpkins.  However, shaving offers a unique way to decorate for Halloween.  Shaved pumpkins are perfect for adding depth considering you are essentially removing a small amount at a time.  


These images were taken using a Canon 5D Mark lll along with a Sigma 35mm 1.4 lens.   The pumpkin is being supported by the DayTrip which happens to be MeFOTO's most compact tripod.  This particular tripod is extremely portable and comes in eight different colors for everyone.  As you can see from the photo below, the DayTrip can safely support up to 8.8 lbs.  For more product features and specifications click here.

Don't forget to participate in the #MeFOTO Weekly Tripod Giveaway Extraordinaire by simply sharing your images on Instagram!  Stay up to date as well by signing up to be notified about the latest MeFOTO promotions and releases.

Happy Halloween!
