When I need a picture of something, I usually just ask my husband and resident professional photographer to do it for me. He’ll take care of setting up the lights and backdrop, shooting the photo, and editing it.
But sometimes I need a picture of a small item and I don’t have time to wait for him to do it. And sometimes he doesn’t want to have to set up the big lights and backdrop for one small shot.
We found the solution with the Puluz foldable photo box/portable studio kit.
Recently, I heard someone bragging about his leadership skills and abilities. He was talking about how people have different interests, and that our competencies are likely to increase in areas we enjoy.

Review of the Tascam DR 10L Micro Portable Audio Recorder
Recently we purchased a Tascam DR 10L micro portable audio recorder. Jerry Clement, my husband, business partner, and videographer, loves it. Here’s the review he shared:
We purchased this Tascam DR 10L recorder for two primary reasons:
(1) We already had a black one, really liked it, and needed another one for interviews and other such situations.
(2) B&H Photo had a special price in their “Deal Zone.”
