Making The Most Unbelieveable Basketball Trick Shots With After Effects And Some Creativity

Making The Most Unbelieveable Basketball Trick Shots With After Effects And Some Creativity

This video reminds me of my college days– spending time working with a friend while having next to no budget, but coming up with a fun idea for a short video that would allow us to flex some creative muscle. Corridor Digital may have a (small) budget for these, but what I enjoy about them is that the fun and creativity feels authentic, which you often only get when no agency or corporate sponsor is pushing creative decisions. In this video, you'll see the final clip, with the behind-the-scenes video inside the full post.

Photographer Brings Back the '80s Glamour Shot and They're Totally Rad

Photographer Brings Back the '80s Glamour Shot and They're Totally Rad

Robbie Augspurger is a professional photographer from Portland, Oregon with a grand affinity for the generation of "Back to the Future," big hair, and stone washed jeans. He's started an ongoing '80s glamour shot series that began when a friend asked him to take his actor headshots. To prepare for the shoot, Augspurger bought a 30 year old Photogenic FlashMaster light kit and asked his roommate to pose for some shots in a three-piece tweed suit. With inspiration from photographs found in an old shoe box, or on the dashboard of his dad's pick-up truck, he had a concept in motion: creating vintage thread clad characters for the portrait series "Glamour & Headshots".

Surf Photographer Makes Friends With Tahitian Waterfowl

In another display of animals doing interesting things for the camera, one tropical bird makes a perch out of a surf photographer's head. Morgan Maassen was swimming and photographing the famous wave at Teahupo'o when he ran into this flighty local out in the water. The black noddy was flying around the lineup landing on surfers and boats until it found the safety of Maassen's head. "It was hilarious," Maassen said in an interview with HuffPost. "He had a firm grip, with tiny claws on his webbed feet that poked into my head."

What It's Like Being a Pretentious Cinematographer

What It's Like Being a Pretentious Cinematographer

Our lives as photographers and videographers can be tough, but let's be honest - it's fun to be creative! We get to work with amazing gear and produce compelling visual content for the world to enjoy. However hard we work in our creative fields, I feel it's best to never really take ourselves too seriously. If we do, let's hope that one of our peers will put together a parody response like the one Adam Khamis created above to help check our egos and bring us back down to Earth.

Kids Try to Use Film Cameras For The First Time and Unsurprisingly Have No Idea How They Work

Remember those days when you totally forgot what ISO/ASA film was inside your camera, or when you just had no idea if the photos came out until you went somewhere to get them developed?

Five Photography Related Answers To Five Photography Related Questions Part One

Over the last several years, I’ve been fortunate enough to grow an audience wider than I’d ever thought possible. From the days of taking photos of whatever was in front of me, to speaking at the Phase One Stand Out Photographic Forums this October in LA and San Francisco, it’s been, to the say the least, quite an adventure. All that would not be possible, however, if it wasn’t for the Google and, more importantly, a core group of photographers who, at one point or another, shared with me the answers to questions that had been burning so bright in my mind, that I literally couldn’t sleep until I’d found a satisfactory answer.

And the Drone Save Of The Year Goes To...

And the Drone Save Of The Year Goes To...

If you are a quadcopter owner like I am, you know how frustrating it can be when you are in the middle of a great flight and those red lights start flashing that warn the pilot of low battery. Usually the pilot will return the aircraft safely to their side before the impending doom occurs. Unfortunately, YouTube user Redphive didn't notice the warning lights while flying over the lake behind his home. All of a sudden, you see the drone start falling and the pilot start freaking out.
