This is the first time I entered a FIAP, PSA, GPU recognized competition. I entered 3 categories (4 images each). My results were one acceptance in Open Color category and one acceptance in the Travel Category. Goose egg in the Open Monochrome.
Mixed emotions for me right now. First competition, positive results! Didn’t win an award but got some recognition. I realize that I need to work on my “photo sense” I think. My least favorite photo of the bunch was accepted (I almost didn’t submit it) and my most favorite wasn’t accepted.
Challenge Accepted. Fire under chair status: RAGING ! If you’re interested in Fiap, PSA, GPU competitions as well, you can check our listing here. If you know of any please drop us a note and we’ll add it to the list.

This new TTP Shapeshifter named The Naked Shapeshifter is something that I’ve been asking/wanting for a long time. I can’t wait to get my hands on this bag to check it things out, namely, it can fit 2 TTP Hubba Hubba’s and a couple of TTP skin body bags. It looks like the side loops can’t a TTP Strobe Stuff nor the TTP R U Thirsty.
In my search for the “perfect” bag, I’ve come across this bag: Trustbag. “The world’s most secure bag.”
The scenario: when I travel for long periods of time and I’m packing full. I don’t need all my gear on each day so I have to leave some behind in the hotel. Originally I used to use 2 back packs, one for bulk gear and one I use for shooting out of but then leaving a backpack full of gear with no way of reliably securing was a tad sketchy for me. I used to use a laptop tether to secure to a room table or closet rod and put the attached laptop into the bag of gear and padlock the zippers.
Now I’m using a carry on sized suitcase with built in lock but no way to secure the luggage to anything but the suitcase is more rugged than the backpack. The solution would be a rolling suitcase type bag with a built in wire cable lock but those are pricey.
So this bag by Trustbag seems to fit my needs although it looks a bit small for my needs so I may have to get 2 which would put the price range into the roller camera bag range. As a bag to shoot out of, the shoulder straps look uncomfortable. I wonder if those shoulder straps are uncuttable too.
