Let's Grab Lunch (With Lee Morris) In NYC Update: Booked

Let's Grab Lunch (With Lee Morris) In NYC Update: Booked
Update: Every day has been booked. I am back up in NYC for the next 10 days and next week my schedule is totally open every day (April 18-22) from 1pm-5pm. I'd love to have lunch with anyone who is interested for absolutely any reason. You by no means have to be an established photographer or even want to talk about photography. If you are interested, simply send me a Facebook message and let me know the location (Brooklyn and Manhattan only please) and the time and I'll be there. In some cases I may be able to meet 2 people per day. Last time I did this I met 7 incredible people including Frank Zurita who now produces original music for us and Noam Galai who you all now know. I can't wait to see who I will meet this time.

Photoshop Remote For The iPad Looks Promising

Photoshop Remote For The iPad Looks Promising
When the iPad was announced I laughed. I thought "this is just an over-sized iPhone that can't even make calls." I then figured out how to tether my DSLR to it and now I bring it on every shoot. Don't get me wrong, it does have some annoying quirks but when it does something well... it does it very well. Adobe may take the iPad to the next level and make this "toy" an even more powerful tool for photographers. In the video below Shawn Welch shows us a quick run through of his new iPad app that will work directly with Photoshop on your computer. Hit the full post to see 2 videos of Adobe's work in progress. Maybe one day the iPad can will be able to compete with this.

The First Ever Digital Camera And Its Creator

The First Ever Digital Camera And Its Creator
This is by no means the most thrilling video but it is really interesting. I've always wondered what was officially the "first" digital camera, and I guess I now know. Steven Sasson claims that he invented digital photography when he created this strange looking camera. The camera could shoot stills and record up to 30 of them on a digital tape. It's amazing how far we have come in such a short amount of time.

Lakai Blows Up Skateboarders To Sell Shoes

Lakai Blows Up Skateboarders To Sell Shoes
You may remember a post that we did months back of Lakai shooting a video with skateboarder jumping over huge flames... Well I believe this video is actually older but I like it more. This time the shoe company used explosives to ramp up the excitment and I love it! Usually we post the BTS on the front page but the finished product is so cool I'd rather you watch it first; then you can hit the full post to see all of the "mistakes" that actually made it into the finished product.

How To Shoot A Super Hero Action Shot

How To Shoot A Super Hero Action Shot
I know a couple of Fstoppers that go by the names of Tiffany and Gianna that are going to love this one... Jay P. Morgan is back again with a really unique concept. In this video Jay explains how he created a super hero concept from nothing and then shows us every minuscule detail that goes into making that image come to life. As always, Jay does an incredible job of packing his video with priceless information that every photographer can use, even if you don't ever plan to shoot Wonder Woman.

Make Any Camera Shoot Ultra Slow Motion

Make Any Camera Shoot Ultra Slow Motion
We have posted about Twixtor before but today I was sent 2 great examples of it being put to use. Instead of simply slowing frames down, Twixtor actually can create as many frames as you like for super smooth ultra slo mo. Obviously nothing beats actually shooting at 1000fps but this program is quite good in most cases. We used it on every frame for the intro of The Wakeboard Studio Shoot. Check out the full post for a second video.

DC Creates An Epic Skateboard Commercial

DC Creates An Epic Skateboard Commercial
Skateboard and snowboard companies have really been pushing their advertising budgets to the limits over the past decade. In the video below we can see exactly what goes into creating amazing 10 second clips of individual skateboard tricks in super slo mo. The concept is simple but actually making it happen is another story.

GPP Shoot Out 2011: Zack Arias VS Joey L

GPP Shoot Out 2011: Zack Arias VS Joey L
Each year Gulf Photo Plus takes place in Dubai. During part of the show they pit 2 or more photographers against each other in a surprise photoshoot. Last year the shoot out involved Zack, Joey, and David Hobby of Strobist but this time Zack and Joey were the only shooters. This years subject was quite a surprise and a bit more difficult to shoot than the beautiful women they had last year. I'm not a huge fan of the finished images but I'm not sure what other options these guys had. Check out Zack's blog to read about his thought process while he was shooting.

More Proof That Expensive Gear Does Not Equal Good Pictures

More Proof That Expensive Gear Does Not Equal Good Pictures
I created the iPhone Fashion Shoot to attempt to prove this point. 50% of the people who saw it "got" it and the other 50% claimed that it only looked good because I used $10,000 worth of light. Well I've always said "light is light" and all those expensive light modifiers do is make the light source bigger or smaller. Don't believe me? Bert Stephani will take over where I left off shooting with these work lights (the same ones that I used for part of the iPhone shoot) and a shower curtain.

Photographer Travels To The Most Remote Part Of The World To Give Away A Portrait

Photographer Travels To The Most Remote Part Of The World To Give Away A Portrait
I'm sure many of you are familiar with Help-Portrait, an organization of photographers who shoot free portraits to share their art and enrich others lives. Most photographers shoot free portraits around their communities but Sasha Leahovcenco wanted to shoot people that may never get the opportunity to have their picture taken at all. Sasha and his crew traveled to Chukotka, Russia and produced an amazing video of their experience.
