The Bugatti Glamour 2009 Backstage

Our website is finally working again as the traffic from the iPhone video slows down. We are going to get back to releasing 1 BTS video every day. Friday night we had an Fstoppers get together in NYC and it was a big hit. About 22 photographers showed up including Tkae Mendez. Tkae just sent this great BTS video over to me. Enjoy…


Lee Morris Has A Phone Interview With Your Mac Life

If you hate reading as much as I do then you probably don’t want to read my previous post; it is really really long. Luckily there is another option for all of us lazy people.
A couple days ago I did a phone interview with “Your Mac Life” the most listened to Mac broadcast.  The interview is about 30 minutes long but you don’t have to read a single word! Click here to hear things from my point of view.

Lee Morris Responds To The iPhone Fashion Shoot

Wow, the iPhone fashion video has really blown up over the past few days. The video has been viewed by almost 300,000 people as I write this. My 3 websites have been completely crippled for the past 2 days. So crippled in fact that we couldn’t even login to create/edit posts.

As with anything controversial brought into the lime light there will be people on both sides. I have received countless comments and emails thanking me for this video but this video may have gotten even more negative comments. At first I tried to respond to everyone individually but that quickly became impossible. Last night I read a very well written post on macgasm.net named “Why the 3Gs fashion shoot is misleading” by Joshua Schnell.

In this post I will comment on every point I have read brought up about my video.

NYC Photography Get Together In 2 Days

On Wednesday Patrick and I are flying to NY to shoot our next Fstoppers original BTS video. This video is going to be huge… so huge that I don’t want to talk about it because I still fear it may not happen. While we are up there I wanted to grab drinks with Peter Hurley but then I thought: “why don’t we instead grab drinks with a bunch of photographers!” So we are going to open this up to any and everyone. This Thursday at 7:30 we are going to meet up at “The Ainsworth” bar at 122 West 26th Street NYC. I will be there with Patrick Hall, Jerrit Pruyn, and the talented but unstable Peter Hurley.

As many of you know I am a talented artist and so I created a illustration of what the night might be like.

Anyway, if you are in the area and interested in hanging out then please add me to facebook and warn me that you are coming. We hope that everyone will come and hang out; as you can see by the picture it’s going to be a good time.

The iPhone Fashion Shoot By Lee Morris

A few weeks ago I did a full fashion photo shoot with my iPhone 3gs. I posted a few of the images and asked people to critique them (never exposing that they were shot on my cell phone). I couldn’t help but laugh when a few of our readers claimed that these were “the best images I had ever taken.” Nobody ever claimed that they were too grainy, too soft, or lacked detail.

Critique My Shot

A few weeks ago we created a post that showed a few shots from what I believe will be our most popular Fstoppers video yet. I am currently editing the video and I hope to have it finished some time next week. Until then I thought it would be fun for you guys to critique my favorite shot from the shoot and then when the video launches we can see if your opinions change. Please visit the new critique section of our forum here and let the bashing begin.

Joseph Watts Shoots Tom Anderson

Joseph just sent this BTS video over to me. The video is lacking but the images are so good that I wanted to post this anyway. It is pretty amazing what you can do with a small softbox on a stick. You can view more details about this shoot and the final images here.

Chase Jarvis: “Backup Your Pictures”

Chase Jarvis has apparently figured out the secrets of creating a viral video. I think he released this video 3 days ago and it already has 50,000 views. I don’t mean to keep posting CJ videos but they are all really good so here another. Check it out!
