A few weeks ago I got a friend request and a nice message from Travis Harris, a shooter out of Miami that I had never met before. 4 weeks later he was on a plane to assist me and hang out for 5 days. Travis left yesterday and just a few minutes ago he wrote a kind and inspiring post about his trip on our forum. Travis took a big chance and I think we can all learn from him. Check out his story here. Please feel free to join in the conversation and add your own messages to the post.
Well it took a few weeks but we have finally received our first contest submission. Dave Gruentzel Photography of Photofide.com has created a solid BTS video of their latest underwater shoot. If you would like to ask questions or make comments feel free to leave them below or head over to our forum where they posted the video here.
Today we shot what I believe will be our biggest video yet. It isn’t going to be big because we featured a famous photographer because I, Lee Morris was the photographer. We did something very different today; something I believe has never been done before. It will take us a few weeks to edit down the video but until then you can see a few shots from our shoot and try to guess why this shoot was significant. Check the full post to see 3 more images.

If you saw the BTS video of the movie Avatar you will enjoy this.
When I think of underwater photography I think about fish and coral. Mark Tipple thinks about shooting waves and swimmers from below the surface. Check out this very quick clip and then head over to his beautiful website here.
This video does not have the most informative behind the scenes video to go along with it but it is so good that I wanted to post it anyway. View the full post to see “the making” of this fantastic short.
We finally got our forum up and running and we hope that everyone that visits Fstoppers will also take part in the community we are trying to create. Patrick will be releasing a video soon that is directly related to the forum but until then I wanted to show you a little bit of what you are missing out on. College student Thomas Woodson has created a thread taking us through his car photography techniques. Want to know what gear he is using? A D40, 1 Vivitar flash, and a sheet. Check out the thread here. If you appreciate what we are trying to do at Fstoppers.com then please do both yourself and us a favor and take part in our new forum at www.fstoppersforum.com.
I was just about to throw up a new post and I got this video in an email and decided to change things up. Check out Dave’s fantastic BTS video and then head over to his website here.
Here is a quick timelapse of one of Pete’s latests commercial gigs. It is a bit difficult to see what he is exactly doing in terms of lighting but I am simply impressed by the complexity of this shoot. Look how many people are on the set! After you watch this video head over to his website and be prepared to be blown away. Check the full post to read a message from the photographer.

Ray Demski, Marcel Lämmerhirt, and Chris Stadler were all commissioned by Red Bull to shoot their cliff diving event in Hamburg. Shooting the event was no easy task but luckily for us Ray Demski was kind enough to share how they did it.
I actually just stumbled upon this and was really impressed. View the full post to see the behind the scenes video.
