There is an increasing trend in photography. Its called “mom with camera” or “dad with camera”. A lot of pro photogs are up in arms about losing business to these type of amateurs. When I see the people above, I don’t really worry about it. The images above are a selection of some of the many “MWCs” and DWCs” I saw at the Dave Sanders Invitational. They all fit the same profile: 200mm lens with a monopod. I don’t think that I have ever put a 200mm lens on a monopod. Ok, so that’s not true. I put the Canon 200mm f1.8 lens on a monopod but it does weigh 6.6 lbs. My personal favorite is the tye-dye Rush t-shirt. I have to add one of those to my wardrobe.
