After two months of editing and waiting for David Bergman to get off tour, I am proud to unveil a behind the scenes video on Tour Photography featuring rock icons Bon Jovi at the New Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey. Many of you may know David Bergman from his Sports Illustrated photos or his gigapan image of Obama’s inauguration, but David’s primary focus these days is shooting live events through his company TourPhotographer.com . David discusses his previous work, reviews his equipment, and takes you on an all access preview of what it is like shooting for one of the biggest rock and roll bands in the world! Click the full post to read more about our unbelievable experience filming this as well as a full list of all of David’s recommended gear.
Annie Leibovitz is perhaps the most well known photographer in the world and her work always stands out from the crowded world of photography. While her Louis Vuitton campaign with Sean Connery is a few years old now, there is still a lot of great information to be gained from the beach shoot. Using nothing more than a Photek Softlighter, Annie balances her ambient light well with her soft broad lighting to create a really awesome series of images.
Try to figure out how this image was made and then watch the BTSV in the full post.
I have been on Vimeo for probably an hour going through one terrible BTS video after another. There is so much talent out there but so many of these videos have no details and are so boring. That all changed when I ran across Patrick Boivin’s “AT-AT Day Afternoon.” The BTS video has no talking but it is still totally informative. The finished video is in the full post and it is AMAZING.
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.

I’m a big fan of Annie Leibovitz’s photography (who isn’t), and a few weeks ago I was admiring this photograph she did of Keith Richards for Louis Vuitton. I was really happy when I found a short behind the scenes video of it via Strobist even though the quality is really poor. Click the post to view the final image and hopefully you can see how relatively simple this photoshoot was in lighting. It’s the overall production and attention to detail that really makes this image so awesome.
“Can we make a transparent car?… Of course, we can do anything given the time and the budget”
I actually just stumbled upon this and was really impressed. View the full post to see the behind the scenes video.
Last month Patrick and I had the unique opportunity to follow Todd and Reese of King Street Studios around as they shot Charleston Fashion Week. Not only did they get the standard runway shots, they also setup a small studio backstage and shot amazing portraits of the models right before they were rushed onto the runway. You are about to be blown away by what is possible with a single light.
When I first saw this video I was completely blown away. Using timelapse and high speed photography, Tim Shepherd and David Attenborough produce some stunning footage of plants growing over the course of 2 years. Check out this crazy video produced by the BBC
Dave Lehl is one of the best snowboard photographers in North America. Luckily we are good friends and were allowed to tag along during one of his photoshoots in the back country of Vail, Colorado. In Dave’s own words, what you are about to watch is “pretty typical”…Click the post for another video of Dave talking about his career.
Today I am featuring a video that has hands down been the most important bit of information I credit in my own personal success as a photographer. Watch as Chase Jarvis encouraging young photographers to continue being creative and how to build success around your photography.
I have a few blogs that I go to each day. Today both Gizmodo and Strobist had posts about this video. This is exactly what Fstoppers is all about!
Zimtstern, a clothing company needed a new commercial so they decided to advertise their snowboard apparel in a completely new way. Watch the behind the scenes video below and then the finished product in the full post.
Sometimes when filming a commercial you need to step back and view the large picture. Other times you need to view it small…. 1/10th scale small! Check out this video of the new Nissan as the entire crew show you how it was created and click the post to view the final commercial.
