Famous Photographer’s Mirror Portraits

If you take a glance at facebook or any other social media site you’re bound to come across the dreaded “Mirror Portrait”, mostly it’s just a bunch of 15 year olds holding their cell phones up so they’re far from dignified. That being said though, I was surprised to know that some of the most famous photographers around have taken their own version of this all to common shot. They’re a little more interesting though than your standard mirror picture though.

Phillip Bloom Shoots Pick Ups On The Set Of “Red Tails”

This is a cool little video from Phillip Bloom documenting some of the pick up shooting for the movie Red Tails. This is an awesome look at some of the great DSLR rigs they have for professional film production. Also, take a look at that $700 3D rig! That’s the highlight of the video for me.


[Video] Burned Out On Photography? This Will Make You Smile

I feel like everyone gets burned out on photography, or anything that they do for that matter, after a certain period of time and you just need something to pick you back up, this very cute video might just do that.


[BTS] Building A Car Composite

This is a very cool video from the guys over at Aesonica, they’re shooting an Audi A4 with only a single light and a whole lot of post work. Just goes to show that you don’t need a ton of money to make a great shot of a car.

Well, you’ll need plenty for an awesome car to shoot, but that’s not important right now.

[Interview] Framed Interviews John Keatley

This is a really amazing interview with John Keatley, a celebrity and editorial photographer by Framed. This is a long interview, but it’s definitely worth the time, every member of his crew gets interviewed and includes a breakdown of some of his shots with his retoucher.


[BTS] Brett Warren Shoots “Wooden Heart”

This is another cool behind the scenes video from Brett Warren as he shoots his series “Wooden Heart”. Brett interned with Annie Leibovitz, and you can definitely tell with his work, they’re lit very similarly and the processing is very reminicent of Annie’s work, but it’s still very cool.

[BTS] Annie Leibovitz Shoots Meryl Streep

For the January 2012 issue of Vogue, Annie Leibovitz shot the incredible Meryl Streep and the members of a team of women focused on building a women’s history museum in Washington, D.C. While it talks a lot about their cause, you can definitely see all of her lighting set ups in the shots which are surprisingly simple.


[BTS] Michael Thompson Shoots Rooney Mara

This is a really cool video of a shoot that Michael Thompson did for Allure magazine. I’ll warn you, it talks almost exclusively about makeup and hair, but I loved the simple sets that they built for the shoot AND you see how the photographer used two big silver reflectors to shoot with natural light.
