In the latest tips article to be added to the site, I explain How to Calculate Lens Working Distance.
 
While this distance is easy to calculate with a tape measure or other distance measurement tool, you can also use the site's Lens Specifications and Measurements tool to obtain this information without leaving your seat.
 
Those having read the yesterday-posted Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro Lens Review will recognize the discussed formula.

This is the least expensive lens in my bag – but far from the least used. The lens is so small and lightweight that it's never a burden to add to the camera bag and its image quality is impressively good regardless of price. [Sean]

From JOBY:
 
New flash accessory lets photographers use a stop sign, a fence or a door to dramatically improve photo lighting
 
SAN FRANCISCO, March 25, 2014 – To create more dramatic lighting effects, photographers use off-camera flashes to avoid the flat images that often result from built-in camera flashes. In order to create more interesting lighting angles, a photographer often requires bulky tools or an assistant to hold the flash in place. With the JOBY Flash Clamp & Locking ArmTM photographers can now quickly place off-camera flashes at unique angles for a more professional look.
 
"We often see awkward setups with off-camera flashes, such as people holding their flash in one hand while holding their camera with the other, or people wrestling with a light stand or pole. We think that JOBY’s tools, with their ability to adapt to their environment, make for a much more fun and imaginative way of positioning your flashes." said Michael Jue, director of product design at JOBY.
 
The JOBY Flash Clamp & Locking Arm innovates with a clamp that lets users quickly secure their Canon Speedlite 430 EX II Flash, Nikon SB-700 AF Speedlight i-TTL Flash, PocketWizard Plus III, or any other wireless flash to any surface less than two inches (5.08 centimeters) in width. Now, a stop sign can hold the primary key light. To bring more details to shadows, a fence can mount a fill light. To separate the subject from its background, the top of a door can be a backlight platform. The locking arm also has two fully articulating ball joints that position the flash at any angle needed while providing a long-lasting hold. The Flash Clamp & Locking Arm comes with a removable Universal Flash Shoe that can be used on any tripod with a 1/4"-20 screw.
 
"To achieve good lighting, it’s critical to create the best angles," said Noah Balmer, lead designer at JOBY. "Some people see everyday objects at the shoot as nuisances and obstacles. At JOBY, we see them as photography platforms. Combine a few Flash Clamp & Locking Arm with our GorillaPod Hybrid or SLR-Zoom, and now, the whole world becomes your flash mount."
 
The JOBY Flash Clamp & Locking Arm retails for $39.95 (US MSRP) and is available for purchase at popular photospecialty retailers and consumer electronics stores. The Universal Flash Shoe can also be bought separately for $4.95 (US MSRP).
 
B&H carries the JOBY Flash Clamp and Locking Arm and the Universal Flash Shoe.

From the Vocative YouTube Channel:

Kirill Oreshkin likes taking photographs. Selfies, landscapes, the usual stuff—except his shots are captured atop some of the world's tallest buildings.
 
Once Oreshkin gets as high as the stairs or elevator will take him, he often scales up scaffolding or other parts of the structure. The tallest building he has climbed to date is the Mercury City Tower in Moscow. At 338 meters (about 1,109 feet), it's the tallest in Europe. Oreshkin is one of Russia's extreme urban climbers, known to hang off the edge of buildings by only his fingers. He does all this unsupervised and without any safety gear.
 
"Using safety measures changes something—no one is going to recognize that you really risked your life," Oreshkin says, adding that he knows what he's doing is dangerous.
 
Oreshkin's hobby started in 2008, when he began climbing to the roofs of homes and buildings in his neighborhood. He still doesn't do any particular physical training, since he says it's all about having the right mentality. He claims he was nervous about heights at first, and had trouble standing on the edge, which he now does with ease.
 
"It's no longer about overcoming myself," he says. "I just really like doing it. I like to look and study the city from different viewpoints."
 
Climbing has become second nature to him. "What's going through my head when I'm up there? Nothing special," he says. "I just try to think about hanging tight and staying alive."
