I’m a huge fan of the Profoto gear. When I came across this behind the scenes video on Profoto’s blog, I just had to share it with you guys. To kick off the “Year of the Horse” Tokyo-based photographer Irwin Wong came up with a creative shoot in the middle of the forest. [more]

Photographer Surprises Father With Dream Car For Christmas

This year for Christmas I wanted to surprise my father with his dream car, an original Chevrolet Camaro convertible in hugger orange with white rally stripes. Being that I’m a photographer I decided to photograph the car and give my father a framed print of the car before I revealed that I am actually giving him the car.

If you’re a fan of listening to photography podcasts then you’re probably no stranger to Jared Polin’s (Fro Knows Photo) RAWtalk where Jared and buddy Stephen Eckert (an incredibly talented concert photographer) chat about all things photography. The podcast is also recorded for Youtube and is actually a pretty extensive setup. [more]

The Classic “Bullitt” Chase Sequence – Then And Now

Given access to a time machine, where and when would you choose to go? For some reason, I always seem to think about 1960s San Francisco, and I don’t think it’s (just) for the sex, drugs and rock and roll. I think it’s because I saw the classic Steve McQueen movie “Bullitt” at such a young age that it left an indelible mark. If you’ve ever wondered what Bullitt (and specifically, the amazing car chase sequence) would look like if it were filmed today, you need to check this video out. [more]

Secrets to Crafting Top-Quality Beauty Portraits: On Location Lighting

I am continuing my series of articles about creating stunning Beauty portraits and I would like to talk about on location lighting today. Please note that not only are we talking about advertising Beauty photography, examples of which you may see in the cosmetics section of a department store, or in fashion magazine ads, but we are also talking about simple female Beauty portraits that many of you are probably often hired to photograph for your female clients locally.

Stunning Graffiti Artwork Video “Limitless” BTS And Interview With Creator, Selina Miles

I’ve just had Selina’s answers back for this interview and feel sick. Some numbers – 80 hours shooting, 7000+ stills, 40+ hours of rendering, sleeping in shifts to meet deadlines. I thought my current project was tough – compared to her’s, I feel like I’m sat on a beach drinking a piña colada. Her video “Limitless” has had 6+ million views in 2 weeks, so all her hard work paid off. Read on to find out how she put this beautiful video together. [more]

Peter Turnley’s Love Letter to Paris

There are photo books and then there are photo books that you go back to repeatedly over time. Peter Turnley’s new self-published collection “French Kiss: A Love Letter to Paris” is one such publication that begs to be savored. A monochromatic study of Paris captured over 40 years on the streets, the 138-image hardcover is an homage to the romance of the City of Lights captured with a reverence for the aesthetics of famous French street photography.

The Aviator Travel Jib: A Portable Jib For Video Shoots In Hard To Reach Places

My passion is shooting outdoor lifestyle and documentary projects, and those shoots often require me to be on the go and in remote areas. Historically, getting an expensive jib or crane in those locations was not possible. With the Aviator Carbon Fiber Travel Jib, taking a jib into the field is not only possible, but easy for everyone.

What Will Your Next Personal Project Be?

Tadao Cern is a photographer who has a particularly interesting approach to developing his projects. His latest body of work, “Comfort Zone” is a whimsical look at how we can all – for whatever reason – seemingly leave our physical and psychological inhibitions at home when it comes to sunbathing on the beach, and be happy to “let it all hang out”. We’ll take a look at Comfort Zone, and how Tadao approaches ideas for his work, which we can probably all learn a little something from. [more]

Corey Rich Explains How He Captures Both Still And Motion In The Field

Corey Rich’s work spans both photography and video, often using Nikon DSLRs to capture both. His projects take him to hard to reach places, and being able to manage his gear in both modes quickly, enables him to come away with great images. In this video, Corey explains his choices for gear and shooting style on a climbing trip in Pakistan. [more]

Optimizing the Light in the Caribbean

Having just returned from the Caribbean on an assignment last week, I thought it might make a nice subject for my first post here on Fstoppers. Photography in the Caribbean (and really any tropical island locale) presents a few challenges – or opportunities depending on how you look at it. Namely balancing good light with good water color.
