This 3D Printer Can Print Objects With Moving Internal Parts

If this video had come out in April I would have thought it was a prank. I’ve seen 3d printers before but nothing with this much precision. What is most impressive is the fact that this thing can somehow “print” internal moving parts. This printer may not be directly related to photography but it’s so versatile, it could be related to anything. I recently lost my lens hood for my 24-70mm lens. It would be nice to print another one and save $30. Maybe my kids will have that luxury.



What Photographer Shoots For Vogue Without Lighting A Thing? Meet Alexander Neumann.

Hey everyone! I’m Reese and I’m excited to be a part of the Fstoppers team. My segment, The FS Spotlight, is a new weekly Q&A session with professional photographers at the absolute top of their field. The interviews are going to touch on everything from from how they reached rock star status to their shooting style to what cameras they shoot with as well as their advice to all aspiring photographers. Click the full post to read my interview with fashion photographer Alexander Neumann!

As a writer/photographer myself, I want to hear how photographers got to where they are and how they get these amazing shots; but more importantly I want to know what YOU want to hear from them as well. What’s your interest? Surfing? Combat photography? Food? Retouching? If you could score a 5 minute Q&A with any photographer in the world, who would that be? Let me know!

Today “The iPhone Fashion Shoot” Is 1 Year Old

On July 4th last year Patrick and I published “The iPhone Fashion Shoot” and we wondered if anyone would like it. At the time Fstoppers.com was reaching about 700 photographers per day. To our surprise, websites around the world started sharing the video immediately and on July 5th we got over 23,000 visitors. Fstoppers was actually getting so much traffic that we couldn’t edit anything or make a new post for 3 days because our server kept crashing.

Although we made this silly video half as a joke, it really made Fstoppers.com what it is today because the popularity from this single video was enough to gain thousands of loyal readers. It’s fun to look back but it also makes me wonder…. what in the world can I do to top it?



Photographer Fights Copyright Infringement With Photography

Photographer Ryan Doco Connors recently found one of his images being printed on a t-shirt without his consent. Sugar Factory, the company selling the shirt, claimed that since the image was changed 40% (I have no clue where that number comes from) it was no longer considered his photo. Instead of suing, Ryan fought back with a few new photos and lucky for us, he shares all of the lighting details.

This is exactly how The Stolen Scream story started… Hopefully this isn’t the beginning of something much bigger for Ryan.



A Timelapse Video Of Chicago Taken From A Boat

Patrick and I were just in Chicago a few weeks ago filming an upcoming FS Original and when we asked the locals what we needed to do, everyone suggested the architectural boat tour. Riding a boat through the center of a huge city was a really cool experience and if you ever visit, I would suggest you also check it out.

It appears that Philip Bloom also went on the same tour but he (being the smart guy that he is) strapped a camera to the boat and made a video out of it. Now everyone can enjoy hours of boating through Chicago in about 3 minutes.



Great Photos Taken With A Long Exposure And Sparklers

Von Wong, a photographer who has been featured on Fstoppers many times already, has created yet another great BTSV. In this edition Von Wong uses a long exposure and some sparklers to create some really killer images. We have all probably taken long exposures of sparklers but with a little creativity, you can create a real portfolio piece with anything.



Photographers/Videographers, Need Motion Graphics? Swell.tv Will Deliver

When Patrick and I started Fstoppers.com we needed someone to create the Fstoppers animation for the beginning of each of our videos. We had over 30 animators create mock ups for us and only 1 of them created quality work. That one agency was Swell.tv. If you need any motion graphics work done (video intro, animated logo, special effects) Swell.tv will create world class quality animations for an insanely reasonable price. Dan from Swell has become a great friend of mine and I simply cannot recommend him enough. Check out his new demo reel below.
