How To Choose The Correct Softbox For Each Picture

How To Choose The Correct Softbox For Each Picture
last week Jay P Morgan showed us exactly what softboxes do to light sources. Each softbox shape can be used to create a unique look and in the video below Jay shows us how he chooses the correct size to light a specific shot. Keep in mind that if you don't have enough money to buy multiple sofboxes, you can change the relative size of a single box by moving it closer or further away from your subject.

Peschak is a Fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers, a contributor to National Geographic magazine, and was recently named as one of the 40 most influential nature photographers in the world.

Amazing Tilt Shift Timelapse Video Taken With A Cell Phone

Amazing Tilt Shift Timelapse Video Taken With A Cell Phone
Believe it or not, the video below was taken with a cell phone. Stu Kennedy from kakepipe.com created a really cool timplase video using his Samsung Galaxy S2 cellphone. After filming the video it was edited using Vegas 10 and the tilt shift look was added using After Effects. This video looks better than what a pretty expensive video camera could have shot 5 years ago... and it was shot on a cell phone people!

LeBron James Photographed For GQ Magazine

LeBron James Photographed For GQ Magazine
Recently LeBron James was photographed for GQ Magazine. The video below is really just a promotion for that magazine but if you keep a sharp eye, there is some really good information to be learned. The lighting for most of the shots appears to be pretty simple; a single light above the camera. The size of the light changes from shot to shot from a huge parabolic reflector to a simple bare bulb held by an assistant.

This 3D Printer Can Print Objects With Moving Internal Parts

This 3D Printer Can Print Objects With Moving Internal Parts
If this video had come out in April I would have thought it was a prank. I've seen 3d printers before but nothing with this much precision. What is most impressive is the fact that this thing can somehow "print" internal moving parts. This printer may not be directly related to photography but it's so versatile, it could be related to anything. I recently lost my lens hood for my 24-70mm lens . It would be nice to print another one and save $30. Maybe my kids will have that luxury.

Today "The iPhone Fashion Shoot" Is 1 Year Old

Today "The iPhone Fashion Shoot" Is 1 Year Old
On July 4th last year Patrick and I published "The iPhone Fashion Shoot" and we wondered if anyone would like it. At the time Fstoppers.com was reaching about 700 photographers per day. To our surprise, websites around the world started sharing the video immediately and on July 5th we got over 23,000 visitors. Fstoppers was actually getting so much traffic that we couldn't edit anything or make a new post for 3 days because our server kept crashing. Although we made this silly video half as a joke, it really made Fstoppers.com what it is today because the popularity from this single video was enough to gain thousands of loyal readers. It's fun to look back but it also makes me wonder.... what in the world can I do to top it?

Photographer Fights Copyright Infringement With Photography

Photographer Fights Copyright Infringement With Photography
Photographer Ryan Doco Connors recently found one of his images being printed on a t-shirt without his consent. Sugar Factory , the company selling the shirt, claimed that since the image was changed 40% (I have no clue where that number comes from) it was no longer considered his photo. Instead of suing, Ryan fought back with a few new photos and lucky for us, he shares all of the lighting details. This is exactly how The Stolen Scream story started... Hopefully this isn't the beginning of something much bigger for Ryan.
