Wednesday Rundown

The Wednesday Rundown 10.13.10

Howdy and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. I have been trying to figure out how many photographers I was going to have to get together to rent some studio space in NYC. A couple days ago we posted a write up on www.studioshare.org. Well I signed up with the free code posted on fstoppers the other day and found some dirt cheap studio space. In fact I found one place in Brooklyn for $130 a day! So watch some videos and get some ideas then go find some cheap space to shoot. contactfstoppers@gmail.com

Hello everyone and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. I have been playing around with my flash a bit this week and forgot about the sync speed for a second (just a split second). I know of the 1/250 sync speed and understand the basic idea,  but do you? We have a great video that goes into detail of how the camera and flash sync.  Also we have a video sent in by Julien from Canada, thanks again for the videos! contactfstoppers@gmail.com

The Wednesday Rundown 9.29.10

Hello everyone and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. This week I was wondering why people use filters on their lenses.  The main purpose I have seen is protection, but after stumbling across some amazing IR images I thought I would try to discover the other options. Most of the techniques are for landscape photography but don’t let that stop you from trying some stuff out.   contactfstoppers@gmail.com

The Wednesday Rundown 9.22.10

Hello everyone and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. Happy first day of Autumn, I cannot wait to see the leaves start changing up in the northwest. This week I have a line up of videos on natural lighting.  So many times we try to complicate a shot when we can just use some controlled natural light and have some amazing photos pop out. contactfstoppers@gmail.com

The Wednesday Rundown 9.15.10

Hello everyone and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. This weekend I learned one of my weaknesses, being able to give direction. Wow, this is something I got the chance to learn while shooting a friends engagement shoot. While working as a second shooter the main photographer directs everything and makes it look easy. I finally got the ball rolling a bit and with some more practice I will feel more at ease while helping couples or even just a model strike a pose. I have found a couple videos on posing for photographers and models. contactfstoppers@gmail.com

The Wednesday Rundown 9.8.10

Hello everyone and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. What an amazing long weekend in NYC, the weather was perfect. This week we have a couple of car shoots. One breaks down the lighting very well. We also have a themed bad to the bone shoot that gets a little crazy. Send in your behind the scenes video to fstoppers. contactfstoppers@gmail.com

The Wednesday Rundown 9.1.10

Hello everyone and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. Where has summer gone, where has these beautiful women at the beach I was going to do a photo shoot with go? As reality hits and the days start to shorten I remember my goals to reach this summer and well notice I have fallen short. I have booked some gigs but to really go out and shoot things others have not, well that is one many of us do not achieve. This week I feel like I have found a video or at least a prospective I love. Hopefully next weekend I can attempt to shoot like this rock climbing photographer and get back in one piece. I hope the best for my gear also. contactfstoppers@gmail.com

Hello everyone and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. Another wedding weekend for the crew here at Fstoppers. With a three day weekend coming up and no gigs set for that weekend my mind has started to think where should I go. camping, maybe some rock climbing? Check out the rock climbing shoots I found on the net. It always amazes me all the different photo shoots people have done.  contactfstoppers@gmail.com

Hello everyone and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. Thanks to everyone that came out to the second fstoppers meet up. It is really cool getting to know the community here in NYC. This week I have found a video on creating an action to stamp your logo and add a border to your photos. Pretty interesting stuff if you have not done an action in Photoshop.  contactfstoppers@gmail.com

Hello everyone and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. This weekend all of us here at Fstoppers got out on the open road and got away for a couple of days.

Hello everyone and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. I finally booked and shot my first gig on my own. Yeah! I am a pro now right? Honestly everything in life is a learning experience and this shoot only brought up more questions. Check out my post on the forum on vintage effects on wedding photography. I would love to hear your feed back! We have some videos showing how to create the vintage effect from scratch and even one with Lindsay Lohan. contactfstoppers@gmail.com
