Lindsay Adler Explains Creative Photoshop Techniques

Lindsay Adler Explains Creative Photoshop Techniques

Let's face it, as much as we want to believe great photographs are created "in camera", every single image you see published has been manipulated in Photoshop in some way. When it comes to producing attention grabbing photos, having a strong grasp on post production goes a long way. Oct 30th - Nov 1st fashion photographer Lindsay Adler will be setting down the camera and teaching everything she knows about retouching in her creativeLIVE workshop Retouching and Creative Photoshop. If you have a few spare minutes, be sure to tune into her free video stream. The full workshop description is

FishLove Works To Promote Sustainable Fishing By Posing Celebs With Fish (Totally Naked)

FishLove Works To Promote Sustainable Fishing By Posing Celebs With Fish (Totally Naked)

In an effort to raise awareness of overfishing in the Atlantic Ocean, a coalition of photographers in Europe came together to work on a project known as FishLove. By showing how much these celebs love fish (enough to get naked with them!) they're hoping to bring attention to the plight of many overfished species. While the photos are certainly attention grabbing, I think I much would have preferred video of naked celebrities trying to pose with live fish. In case you were wondering, this post is definitely NSFW and, while I'm at it, not safe for schools, either.

Detailed BTS Video of Powder Shoot

Detailed BTS Video of Powder Shoot

Inspired by Thomas David Photography's shoot earlier this year, CEB Imagery decided to put together a "Dance Powder" photo shoot and filmed a detailed behind the scenes video to "pay it forward." The video is well done as he explains the setup, process, tips, what he learned and even shows his first few photos which he humorously captioned, "WTF YO? That sucked."

Reverse-Engineering The Work of a Master: Creating A Portrait In The Style Of Dan Winters

Phlearn.com just released this behind-the-scenes video which shows how to light, shoot, and process a shot in the style of Dan Winters. By reverse-engineering the light and color that Winters uses (and using a little Photoshop magic), you'll be able to replicate one of his most well-known shots of actor Tom Hanks. I don't know about everyone else, but whenever I look through a magazine, I guess at the lighting setups

Insert Here: Sensual and Artistic Portraits of Sex Toys [NSFW]

Sam Kaplan, a New York-based product and still life photographer, was inspired to create a series of photographs of an object that is often enjoyed in the bedroom rather than on a gallery wall. Sam decided to change all of that, and his series 'Insert Here' takes the taboo and transforms it into an exploration of line, form, and color: Dildart, if you will. It goes without saying that you might want to be careful where you open this post.

Gravity Defying Ads Shot In A Simple DIY-able Set

Gravity Defying Ads Shot In A Simple DIY-able Set

Peter Lundstrom shot the look-book for Courtrai Apperal in a featureless room that they built out of 5 basic walls and painted them all white for one look, and all black for the other. The final shots look great and leave the viewer looking at the image for a few extra seconds, which hopefully leaves them remembering the clothing a bit better than another brand with a model standing straight up. Below are some of the shots before they were cropped tight for the look-book as well as a video showing how they built the set and shot the book. Enjoy!

Fstoppers Exclusive: How Marek Glaser Made the Insane BMW M5 Bullet Commercial

What does it take to turn a blue BMW M5 into a bullet? A little of this, and a little of that, but mostly it takes a team of talented individuals with a dream and the know-how. With a limitless imagination, impeccable understanding of light and meticulous attention to detail, photographer/director Marek Glaser and Big Block digital productions took the imaginary and made it reality.

Super Sad: Super Heroes and Celebrities From The Walk Of Fame

Most of us have seen, either on TV or in person, the characters that dress up in Hollywood, CA as celebrities and super heroes hoping to make a few bucks as a sidewalk attraction. Photographer Nicolas Silberfäden has taken it upon himself to shoot a series of these unemployed "entertainers" as a statement of the current economic crisis that much of America is experiencing. I must say, this sure is a sad crowd of super heroes. Super sad :( Enjoy!
