[BTSV] Contest: Digital Light Sculpting with a Projector

[BTSV] Contest: Digital Light Sculpting with a Projector
"...One projector (the one I used was less than 200 bucks used) can replace many traditional strobes + modifiers for a fraction of the cost. Using this technique I can create more elaborate plates for composite images with less lighting gear... I guess the end goal for this technique would be a developing a projector that used a flashtube... thus creating the ultimate light modifier.”

[Contest] Black Rapid Facebook Group Contest Results

[Contest] Black Rapid Facebook Group Contest Results
As expected, this was an awesome contest. As we have tried to prove time and again (starting with the original iPhone Fashion Shoot), it's not about the camera. With our Black Rapid contest, we wanted you to help us prove that point, and prove it you did. Of all the stunning entries, I had to narrow it down to my top six (seen in full post), and finally my overall favorite. To be honest, there has been one entry that struck me from the moment I saw it. And that was... [read full post]

[BTSV] Contest Entry: Man on Fire (literally)

[BTSV] Contest Entry: Man on Fire (literally)

I have to give some love to fellow Canadian photographer Benjamin Von Wong, a prolific and dedicated shooter. His BTS video shows something you don't often get to see. Disappointment and frustration... (Oh ya and a man getting set the fuck on fire!) It's a common occurrence for good creatives to come up with an idea in their heads only to be really hard on themselves when the final image doesn't quite live up to their expectations. Knowing that being 100% happy with your work means you aren't growing makes Benjamin's dissatisfaction the mark of a true artist. Cause let's be honest, the shoot and the finals were pretty cool. Well done Benjamin. And if you win, you better split your loot with Felix... aaaannd maybe the dude who put him out too. :)

December 31st is the last day for contest entries. Do it! Do it now!

[BTSV] Contest Entry: Queen of Spades (how it should be done)

[BTSV] Contest Entry: Queen of Spades (how it should be done)

This is how you get a great shot. You start with inspiration and you carry it all the way through. In this case Stanislav Stepanov, like so many old school photographers before him, drew his inspiration from classic movie lighting (film noir in particular/ "White Heat" specifically). Good luck Stanislav and don't apologize for you English, your process speaks for itself. December 31st is the last day for contest entries. Get on it.

[BTSV] Contest Entry: "Broken Reality" (well produced)

[BTSV] Contest Entry: "Broken Reality" (well produced)

Big props to photographer Kevyn Bryant and film maker Xavier Burgin for submitting a video that covers all the bases. For being one of their first BTS videos, these guys did a good job at laying it all out there for us. And gosh darn it, there is a quality to these guys that just makes us want to like them. We haven't seen awkward southern charm like this, since the likes of one (green) Lee Morris and one (wet behind the ears) Patrick Hall first took to the BTS camera, way way waaaay back in 2010. Nice work on the editing too Douglas Dillingham and good luck to you all. T minus 3 days and counting to get your contest entries in (that's Dec. 31st 2011).

[BTSV] Contest Entry: The Creek (dedication/party geekness)

With less than a week to go, the Fstoppers 2011 Behind the Scenes Contest is quickly drawing to an end. So, we are spending a lot more time looking over and posting user submissions. This latest entry may not have the best final image out there but I really dig the adventurous/road trip vibe. And what really got me was recognizing myself in the final seconds of the video. You know what I'm talking about... being hunched over your laptop, running through your selection process, while the party rages on around you. It's never very hard to spot the photo geek in a crowd. Best of luck Matthew. Last minute reminder: $21,000 worth of gear is nothing to sneeze at so get those contest entries in damn it. tick, ticK TICK!
