19 Images of Home Made Halloween Costumes

19 Images of Home Made Halloween Costumes

Need a costume for Halloween but don't think you can knock one out of the park DIY style? Ossain Brown created a collection of terrifying vintage photographs of costumes of the past. These costumes are mostly homemade and have a back woods horror more spine tingling than the Deliverance banjo. Honestly, what are nightmares made of if not a child in a burlap sack mask...Warning: images not for the feint of heart.

The Terry Richardson You Don't Know

The Terry Richardson You Don't Know

After reading the comments on the Miley and Terry article I wrote the other day, it made me realize how many people are in the dark about Terry Richardson's talent. I am a huge fan of Terry, mostly because he has an 'I don't give a damn' attitude but he turns out some pretty glorious images when you aren't paying attention. Most people when they hear the name Terry Richardson they think creepy, old, incredibly lucky photographer who gets to see a lot of boobs. But in reality he is highly talented and brought in millions last year for doing much more than mediocre white wall shots.

Fstoppers Interviews Fashion Photographer Paul Phung

Paul Phung is a fashion photographer based in London, but to call what he does just 'fashion' is a gross oversimplification. Paul has the gift of being able to photograph a feeling. He can capture emotions on film. His images dance all over the line that vaguely separates fashion images from fine art. It's no wonder his work has been featured in magazines such as Dazed and Confused, Intern and Nasty.

Want to Know What it is Like to Shoot for W Magazine?

Want to Know What it is Like to Shoot for W Magazine?

We've all seen behind-the-scenes videos before right? Most are quick little tidbits showing how much fun a shoot is and how amazing the life of a photographer is. Some of them even give you some amazing insight into the techniques used by some of the top pros working today. Well, this is NOT that kind of BTS video. This 16 hour (yes, you read that right) marathon of a video is by far the BEST BTS that I've found that really shows you what the elite in the fashion world actually do to make those amazing editorials we all love.

How to Make a High Fashion Specular Reflector

How to Make a High Fashion Specular Reflector

I've got a fun little DIY light modifier for you today. I call it the High Fashion Specular Reflector or "shiny board" for short. In my travels, I have to carry a LOT of gear. Especially when the trip is on my own dime and I don't have a budget to rent the cool toys I want to have. I came up with the idea for this reflector through experimentation and just obnoxious luck. I wanted to create a very hard light (in addition to the sun) to use on my model while on location.

Urban Hippie Is A Must See Fashion-Short That Is Full Of Life And Energy

Urban Hippie Is A Must See Fashion-Short That Is Full Of Life And Energy

Urban Hippie is an award winning fashion-short film that is also a Vimeo staff pick. I was immediately engaged by the visuals that depict a girl's journey into her imagination. There is so much energy and life in the video that it's a must watch. The way each moment was shot was meticulous and every frame could be a photograph of its own. It recent won the the best experimental film at the LA Cinema Festival and the best visual effects award at the La Jolla Fashion Film Festival.

Fstoppers Interviews Fashion Photographer Kesler Tran (NSFW)

Kesler Tran is a photographer based out of Los Angeles and New York specializing in fashion, editorial and beauty. Of the three, one will probably find his beauty work resonating the strongest; it teems from every pore of his images. His eye for light and shape, as complex and trained as it is, seems effortless when one browses through the images on his tumblr. With the sheer amount of content, it's also hard to imagine him ever taking a break. Thankfully, he took one for us.

He returned to his love of fashion photography about four years ago and is here to stay.

What We Can All Learn From The Beautiful World of Cinematographer Mattias Koenigswieser

Whether we shoot stills, video or both, better utilizing light is probably the single quickest and most effective way to boost the quality of our work. I recently came across the beautiful work of cinematographer and DP Matthias Koenigswieser. If you love to shoot natural or ambient light and want to see just how beautiful applying lighting to achieve a natural light look can be, you’re in for a treat.

Using Shot Lists Will Make You a Better Photographer

Using Shot Lists Will Make You a Better Photographer

When I first started shooting, I would spend absolutely no time planning my shots. I would focus tons of time and energy into every other aspect (location, wardrobe, mood, etc) but in some weird turn of events, it must have slipped my mind that the end goal is "The Shot." How that slipped my mind still baffles me. Instead of putting in the effort to plan what my actual finished images would look like, I found a model, found a location and showed up on shoot day with a plan to wing it.

A Peek Behind the Scenes with Peter Lindbergh and Amber Valletta

A Peek Behind the Scenes with Peter Lindbergh and Amber Valletta

Peter Lindbergh is one of my all-time favorite photographers. I often refer to his work for inspiration not only for the technique but for the amazing beauty that exudes from his work. Not too long ago I found this little clip of Peter shooting Amber Valletta (a legend in her own right) for Vogue Italia. What I've found interesting about this video is the level of production that goes into a shoot like this, when the final image appears so effortless.
