Zoomfinder

This is the incredible tool that I use at workshops and in my both of my studios to help me isolate subject matter for a painting. I talk about this great tool in my book and believe that every artist that works from photographs should have one. Most photographs contain way too much information. It's really easy to use a Zoomfinder to zoom in on the areas of the photograph that you want to paint while disregarding the other "stuff" in the photograph. Hey, if it makes the process easier, I'm all for it.
