Things That are Cool: Dodge & Burn Photography T-Shirts

Things That are Cool: Dodge & Burn Photography T-Shirts

Dodge & Burn Photography Tees
It’s Friday, time to have a bit of fun after all the serious rumor stuff.

A few weeks ago a little start-up in New York City called Dodge & Burn contacted me to find out whether or not I wanted to check out their line of photography inspired T-Shirts. Being a guy that likes to wear clothes, I gave them an enthusiastic “yes!” They gave me the option to choose any shirt I desired, I just had to go with the lust worthy “Fast Shooter” shirt showing the amazing Canon 7 and 50mm f/0.95.

My shirt showed up today, and while they didn’t improve my photography, it definitely made me look a lot better shooting.

You can check out Dodge & Burn and all their T-shirts at the links below, follow them on Twitter too!

A bit more information
The T-Shirts are made by American Apparel in the United States and also printed in the USA. One happy customer (thanks Brad) let us know they have held up excellent after months of use and washing.

Canon Rebel 1000D Lost at Sea

Canon Rebel 1000D Lost at Sea

The tale of a camera lost at sea.
The above Canon EOS 1000D was lost at the bottom of the ocean off the coast of British Columbia, Canada for over a year.

Turns out it was found by a diver named Markus Thompson, who brought it back to the top. He discovered the SD card still worked and he was able to view the photos.

What now? Well Markus took to Google+ and ended up finding the owner of the camera!

Thompson took to Google+, posting the story and a few identifying details he was able to dig up from the photos. Within a day, the hive mind was able to track down and contact the owner, a firefighter in British Columbia. We’re not saying you should be thankful for Google+, but the actual people who use it sure seem like good folks.
