Capturing Couture: Unique camera straps *
I have a confession to make. Up until this week, I’ve been rocking the standard Nikon camera strap that came with my DSLR. There is nothing wrong with using the default camera strap, but let’s face it, there are certainly some better choices out there that provide both comfort and style.
I’ve now officially retired my trusty Nikon strap, and swapped it for a camera strap that is truly unique. Her name (yes, my camera strap is now a “she”) is Ella, one of the designs available in the 2″ SLR/DSLR camera strap collection from Capturing Couture.
Before I begin my review, I wanted to share this bit of text from the Capturing Couture Web site that I found particularly inspiring:
Capturing Couture was founded by two working moms, with an obsessive creative passion, spirited ambition,
and fearless work ethic to make magic happen!
I’m not at all surprised that this product was conceived and developed by two smart, stylish moms. When you browse the selection of straps in their shop, you will be struck immediately by the quality and beauty of Capturing Couture’s camera straps. The design choices are fresh, funky, romantic and modern. They also offer a variety of straps designed with men in mind, and I’m sure male photographers who are looking for a way to dress up their equipment appreciate that!
I think I’ve expressed thoroughly now that I think Capturing Couture’s straps are complete eye candy, but I would also like to point out that they are also extraordinarily comfortable, thanks to the neckpad sewn into each strap. The pad is made of a plush velvet, and feels wonderful on your skin. This is quite important for working photographers, as the wear and tear that your equipment can put on you physically after a long day of shooting can be immense. It’s best to take every opportunity to spare your body some wear and tear, and the wonderful padded neck straps from Capturing Couture are really helpful.
I would recommend Capturing Couture’s camera straps to any of my photographer-colleagues, and also to my friends and family who are looking for a fun, stylish accessory for their camera! I am also thrilled to have the opportunity to give one of you a Capturing Couture camera strap–how cool is that? Following is the gorgeous strap you could win:
