An Amazing Look into National Geographic’s Wildlife Photographers

Over the last 100 years, National Geographic has brought us some of the most iconic and incredible images of wildlife spanning across the globe. Though on rare occasion, we’re able to actually see the work that goes into capturing these images. Some of these amazing photos take days, or even weeks to capture. The film posted above is a great look into all the images that National Geographic captures during a migration period for various animals. [more]

The Underwater World of Nick Pugay

Living in the desert, I don’t see a lot of water. And while I lived on coastline, I never really played with water for shoots other than the occasional beach photo. This is why I became fascinated by Nick Pugay’s work when I first saw it. That’s because Nick Pugay takes your wedding photos and engagement photos, underwater. [more]

Oops Olympus! Justin Bieber’s New Music Video Was Also Shot With GoPros [UPDATED]

A couple of nights ago a close friend of mine, Jesse, gushed over Justin Bieber’s new music video, ‘Beauty and A Beat’. How it was entirely shot with the new Olympus TG-1 (a point-and-shoot camera) and how I should write a post about it for the site. So, taking his lead I went ahead and did some research on Justin’s new music video. [more]

Freewheeling – Self Propelled Underwater Wheel Chair

This has to be the most interesting thing I have seen in a long time. This idea, created by Sue Austin, was for the 2012 Cultural Olympiad in which she, in her self-propelled underwater wheel chair, explored the underwater world in order to generate a widespread public debate about the nature and value of contemporary arts practice shaped by the experience of disability.

How To Fake An Underwater Scene In A Pool

For over a year and a half now, David Reynolds has been filming his “budget” series of short films called The Underwater Realm. Each week he and his team release a behind the scenes video on how they overcome some technical aspect of filming (previous Fstoppers posts here). This week Eve explains how he tackled the challenge of making a small diving pool appear like an infinite ocean using something other than green screen. If this is what is required on a budget, I can’t imagine what the full blown productions look like!

Interview With Underwater Photographer Elena Kalis

Elena Kalis’s underwater photos are incredible. I have seen many photographers try this and it just never seems to turn out right. There is always something about the shots I wont like but that could easily just be me being picky. However, when it come to Elena Kalis’s underwater photography, I cant look away. [more]

Fisherman Captures Amazing Footage Of Dolphins Underwater With Gopro

One thing I love about the Gopro Hero 2 cameras is that normal, everyday people can record amazing footage that has never been seen before. Such is the case with Mark Peters who thought he was just going to film some albacore tuna during his fishing trip. Little did Mark know what his GoPro would capture inside his homemade underwater torpedo. [more]

Emma is a 14-foot long tiger shark living in the Bahamas. And she steals expensive cameras. While a film crew was shooting a documentary called Shark Obsession, Emma swiped $15,000 worth of equipment. Fortunately, she dropped the 30 pounds of gear soon after and it remained undamaged. Unfortunately, her camera wasn’t rolling at the time.
