We’re not the only ones in the “In My Bag” game. HDR One, an online community for HDR enthusiasts, is featuring photographer Scott Frederick with a couple of his images and a look at the gear he relies on.
Included in his bag of tricks is an Induro CT213 and BHD2 ballhead. He writes:
“ …I’m achieving better clarity in difficult shooting conditions because of this tripod. It keeps my camera very steady, especially during a 4 minute long exposure.”
Scott has a unique way of working, so check out the post on HDR One for more details. To see more of his work, go to his portfolio. Connect with Scott on Facebook, Google+, and Twitter.

Photographer Scott Frederick recently visited somewhere spooky—the ruins of Old York County Prison in Pennsylvania.
Using a Promote Control remote, which allows him automatically bracket for up to 45 shots, and a “very sturdy Induro carbon fiber tripod” allowed him to create some intriguing HDR images of the unique location.
He got the Induro after ruining three cheap tripods with salt water. “it was time to make the investment!,” he writes. He is using the CT-213 with BHD2 Ballhead.
We’re glad he did. Check out some images from his shoot on his blog and on preservingyork.com. To see more of his work, go to his portfolio. Connect with Scott on Facebook, Google+, and Twitter.

Growing up during the Lebanese Civil War, Ali Elhajj lived an eventful life before coming to the United States. Since arriving here, he’s lived in states as far flung as Michigan, Hawaii, and Florida, where he’s remained since 2000. Fluent in both English and Arabic, Elhajj has done everything from photography to running a nonprofit organization to grad student marine mammal research to software programming. These diverse endeavors have helped shape who he is, what he photographs, and how he shoots his images.
While living in Hawaii as a college student, his mother gave him a Canon Digital Rebel. “I could see I had an eye, but I could tell I was far away from being a good photographer,” he recalls. This was the beginning of his career as a photographer. Being a writer of software, he’s very technical, but photography gives him “the opportunity to be both technical and artistic at the same time,” he feels.
