First Day w/the Shootsac & Ode to Scarlett Lillian

So, as some of you know I'm an avid reader of Scarlett Lillian's Blog... I've even met her in person!! Ok Ok so I have a professional crush and meeting her was like meeting Brent Smith of Shinedown, but that's a whole nother blog!! Some months back she posted a blog about her new shootsac, so I started investigating this shootsac and determined pretty early on that I wanted one and I wanted it BAD!!!! So, here's the thing, I'm a completely visual person and if I can't see something in whole, (either in my head or in person) I have a hard time making the commitment to purchase.... (that's another little known fact about me, I have a hard time spending money even if it's on something I need) Alright, long story short the shootsac has covers that make it look snazzy and well frankly a few months ago there wasn't a cover I liked so I didn't get one...

In my blog "The Eve of New Years Eve" I did a photo shoot of a band at the Jacksonville Landing. Well when I entered the landing I was almost immediately stopped by security and asked not to have my backpack on the property. Well, I have EVERYTHING in that backpack lenses, spare batteries, additional CF cards... I mean everything and not having those things at my fingertips really sucked. Monday I went to the ImagingUSA convention in Tampa, FL and low and behold there was a Shootsac booth, AND they had NEW covers!!! Needless to say, I made the purchase.

So, the photos below don't have anything to do with the shootsac per say other than the fact that I had every lens I needed right at my fingertips. The shootsac is, thus far, is the best purchase I've made all year... (but we are only 10 days in)

This one is my fav photo from the day... it's so valentinesy
