Here is a very simple video of a very complicated photoshoot. I have trouble posing 1 subject but Douglas has to pose 7 guys, a truck, and a hovering helicopter. After turning day into night with Photoshop this is one successful shoot.
A few days ago I posted Patrick’s video of his friends jumping on a trampoline in the desert… I just ran across his skim boarding video on vimeo and I am once again smiling while I watch his work. You want to know how he did it? Simple; he put a GoPro HD Hero on a monopod and threw it around in the ocean. Love it!
I am currently up here in NYC and Patrick Hall is coming up on Monday. Our goal was to come to the city to create our next Fstoppers video and the photographer that we had planned to feature doesn’t have any big shoots lined up for next week. If you happen to to be, or know of a great photographer in NYC that will be doing a shoot on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week please give me, Lee Morris, an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or a phone call (843.697.4282). We would love to feature you/them free of charge. At this point we are looking for a product/car photographer but since it is so last minute any cool photoshoot will do. If you happen to live in NYC and simply want to party with us feel free to call or email too :)
In this video Patrick Lawler explains how he shot his fantastic short using the 7D, a trampoline, and a little special effects. Many of our readers have video equipped DSLRs. We should all be out creating unique art just like Patrick. View the full post to see the finished product and get inspired.
Check out Andres doing his thing and then the actual tear sheets from the magazine he was shooting for. After you check out his video you can head over to his website here.
Here’s a really cool video of Oscar Van De Beek shooting a new car. What better way to show of the new car than with fire and explosions. You can check out Oscar’s amazing portfolio here.
This video is a bit old but I know many of our readers may have never seen it so I thought I would post it. You can check out the finished images at Dave’s website here.
A couple of weeks ago I posted a killer video of Simon Gerzina behind the scenes shooting fashion. Well he is at it again and we love his video and finished product just as much as the first one. After you watch him work check out his other photography here. If you live in NYC don’t miss out on his April 10-11 workshop.
I just recieved a tip from one of our readers to check out Aaron’s blog. I am so glad I did because not only is his photography fantastic; his behind the scenes videos are also interesting and informative. Check out his last shoot in the woods and then head on over to his website here.

Many of you have already seen this but if you haven’t you should check it out. Zacuto (the company that makes add-ons for DSLR video) has put together the most extensive video quality test I have ever seen. You can check out this weeks video at http://www.zacuto.com/shootout . Below is just a trailer since the full video is not able to be embedded any longer
This is the is what Fstoppers is all about. National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore has created a book that will feature portraits of endangered species. To go along with his book he created a quick video promo. This video is the behind the scenes of that promo. View the full post to see the extraordinary finished product.
Lars Franzen shows us how to take amazing pictures outside with only small battery powered strobes. If you want to see more of Lars’ amazing photography check out his site at: www.larsfranzen.com
Here’s a clever idea: Create a campaign without showing the product… Watch this quick video of my good friend Caesar Lima doing his thing and then read all about this interesting marketing idea and the technical side of this shoot in the full post.
I love this video because it is so different. After you learn how to shoot people peaking from behind a curtain you should check out Espen’s amazing portfolio at www.heiaespen.com
Before Fstoppers.com launched I was in NYC at a scuba store preparing for my trip to Belize. I was talking to the store owner about underwater photography and Christopher Lynch walked up and joined in the conversation. Chris explained that he was a professional commercial shooter and after some great advice he gave me his card and went on his way. I went to his website later that night and found some fantastic behind the scenes footage. I have a hard time setting up shoots in small towns, he does it on the streets of Manhattan.
