Buy A Nikon D7000 Get A $450 Epson R1900 Free


We usually don’t post good deals on the front page of FS but this is one of the best deals I have seen. Right now, if you buy a Nikon D7000 body (it literally just started shipping a couple days ago) and an Epson R1900 photo printer, you will get a $450 rebate, which is the full cost of the printer. Deals like this do pop up but never with a camera this new.

I just got a chance to play with the D7000 at the photo Expo in NYC and the ISO performance is up there with the D3 and it has more mega-pixels and it shoots 1080p video and you get all of that for just $1100. If you needed an excuse to buy this camera, you’re welcome. Details at BH here.

NYC Photographers Meetup Tonight, Friday Oct 29th


Last night I thought I was getting together with a few photographers that I know in NYC to play a friendly game of poker. We sent a few texts out and about 20 photographers showed up including a few big names like Zack Arias and Peter Hurley.

Tonight, Friday October 29th at 8:00pm we are meeting at Swift Hibernian Lounge at 34 East 4th Street. If you are considering not coming because you don’t know anyone or that you won’t fit in; don’t worry, this group of core photographers are some of the most welcoming people I’ve met in NYC. I will personally introduce you to every single person there. If you have questions or any trouble getting there you can contact me, Lee Morris, directly at 843.697.4282. You never know who might show up :)

Update: Peter Hurley claims he will come dressed in a full suit of armor and I am heading to the Expo to invite more.

How To Directly Tether Your Camera To An iPad By Lee Morris

Are you a photographer and an iPad owner? If so, you are really going to love this. Are you a photographer who swore you would never buy an iPad because it’s just an over-sized iPod Touch? Well you are about to change your mind.

We have recently figured out that with nothing more than a jailbroken iPad and an Eye-Fi Pro X2 card, you can wirelessly tether the two without the need for a separate network.

This “hack” is so useful that we have decided to give away a free iPad randomly to one of our twitter followers. Please read the full post to learn more.

Wedding Photography Tip: Fight For Your Artistic Vision

Today, it is pretty common for a couple getting married to hire both a wedding photographer and videographer. When I meet a videographer for the first time I usually try to feel him or her out and figure out the best way that we can work together as team. In most cases we can both work to create great memories for our clients, but, if the videographer happens to step into my shot and ruin a picture, I have no choice but to begin to punch him in the face. If he attempts to fight back I am then forced to smash his video camera. This may be a little hard to understand so check out the video below for a great example.

Let’s Grab Drinks Tonight And/Or Next Friday


I wasn’t planning on doing a meetup this month but now, due to popular demand, we are going to have two. Tonight (Friday 22nd) we will be meeting at 79 North 11th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211. I know this is really last minute but I had 8 people today tell me they wanted it tonight. If you can’t make it, don’t freak; we also plan on doing another get together in Manhattan Friday night after the Expo. I’ll give you more info on that early next week. Call me if you can’t find us: 843.697.4282.

Let’s Grab Lunch In NYC: Update

This weekend I shot Travis Harris’ wedding in Vermont and now I am back in my second home, NYC. In case you didn’t know, Oct 28th-30th is the PhotoPlus Expo and I plan to be there all three days. If you are looking for a group to go with, we would love to have you join ours.

Until then, I thought it would be fun to meet some new people around the city. I am completely free on October 20,21,22,25, 26, and 27 and I would like to join YOU for lunch. If you are interested, simply send me a note on Facebook with the day, time, and location where you would like to meet and I will show up (Manhattan and Brooklyn only). I don’t care what you do for a living, or what you want to chat about, I’m really up for anything.

Also, if we get a big enough group interested I will be happy to throw another FS get-together one night. Let me know if you would be interested in that in the comments below.

Update: So far I have been booked for lunch every day except for Tuesday the 26th and Wednesday the 27th. If you are free for lunch either of those days let’s meet up!

Update 2 All of my free days have been booked up and I am now double booking days. If you can do a really late lunch let me know. Otherwise let’s meet up at the expo.

Diana Deaver Shoots In An Empty Church

To help raise money for the AIDs foundation, Diana Deaver did a photoshoot in a nearby church that was being renovated. Diana set up the shoot, did the models hair, made the models dress, and shot all the pictures with nothing more than some natural light and a little on camera fill. If that isn’t enough to inspire you, I don’t know what is.

Transformers 3 Behind The Scenes

Let’s get one thing straight; I hate Transformers. I actually thought Transformers 2 was so bad that I walked out on the movie and since my friend actually wanted to continue watching it (and he had the car) I walked home 3 miles in the middle of the night… That’s a true story.

That being said, I can always appreciate a quality production and Michael Bay never fails with that. Check out this home made BTSV of Transformers 3 in the making. Fast forward to 2:15 for the good stuff.
