Kevin Russ: New Interview Details His Inspiration and Techniques For Traveling And Shooting With Only An iPhone
We recently featured Kevin’s work here at Fstoppers, but in this new video Kevin talks about his inspiration, techniques, close encounters with wolves, bison, and moose (those iPhones don’t zoom that much, after all), sleeping in his car, his post processing methods, and how you can get started on your own similar journey.
While on one hand my mind is blown, on the other, I’m somehow not surprised to see something like this: I’ve long been a proponent of the mantra ‘the camera doesn’t matter’ and not only is this living proof (his images blow me away) but seeing this stuff inspires me to get out and perfect my vision rather than longing for the latest piece of gear. Need I remind any of you guys of Lee’s iPhone fashion shoot? It’s quite incredible what patience, vision, and knowledge of light can get you even with a mediocre camera. I could keep drilling it into your heads (see: David Hobby’s adventures in Hong Kong) but I think you get where I’m heading with this. In case you wanted a quick refresher of Kevin’s work, check it out below.
Kevin’s tumblr (his main website, actually) is also a great source of information for those seeking some more in-depth answers to questions that he frequently receives. I don’t have to mention the awesome photography that you’ll find there, either!
What more can I say – his work makes me feel inadequate. Kevin, if you’re reading this, fantastic stuff!
