I was very happy with the feedback I got on my first batch of ‘screen test photos’. It got me thinking and tinkering to improve the images. Mind you, I still prefer to use natural light, which I use for all my regular photos. However, I need to use artificial light at the Amsterdam Meet, and a set-up that helps me take a few hundred photos that can be quickly processed. I like these a lot better, looks like I’m dialling in to where I want to be…Thanks for watching!
I saved the Chaparral 3 for the last video I shot at the IWA show. This knife is one of my favorites and Eric Glesser was kind enough to help me shoot this video. Although I have no concrete info, I’m guessing this won’t be a cheap knife. I suspect the handle on this Chaparral 3 takes a lot of machining time, and with those close tolerances, it can’t be cheap. In my opinion, the stepped titanium pattern is even nicer in persan than in video or pictures. The ergos were great too, no sharp edges where they shouldn’t be.
