Not a person, but a sweet new bag in a workable size. Sure they make our favorite camera bags.

Years ago, Litepanels came on the scene with rheostats,cool to the touch, color balanced lights. Battery or AC, a whole new world of lighting opened up.Pricey, but delivered.

Rogue FlashBenders light shaping tools. Sure, we’ve talked about em, given some away, and had some nice still photos.
