Last year, the Fstoppers team joined Joey Wright in Curacao to film one of our best tutorials to date, Swimwear Photography - Lighting, Posing, and Retouching. Not only was the location and team incredible, Joey's photography techniques and ability to work with models produced some of the best photography information I've learned in years. Every lesson spans well beyond the genre of swimwear and can be applied to any shoot involving a model. As a tribute to the tutorial, we are releasing a free excerpt from one of the best lessons on posing I've ever watched.
A few weeks ago, I wrote an article on my favorite camera, the Mamiya RZ67.

Well, in celebration of May the 4th, KEH, a used camera gear reseller, is having a fantastic sale on Mamiya gear.
We're always on the lookout for good camera deals and this definitely caught our attention. There is currently a highly rated eBay seller providing brand new Sony Alpha a7R II Mirrorless Camera Bodies for only $2,199.99. That's $500 better savings than any other major camera distributor is providing online right now. Usually we give a little caution with gray market cameras but the seller says these are direct import cameras and they come with a one year US Warranty through the seller. That's a hard price to beat. The cameras come in a limited supply so make sure to act quick.

The Sony a7RII has been out for over a year now but it is still an incredibly competitive camera with it's solid dynamic range, high ISO, and solid video performance.

This means it's possible you may run into issues that you wouldn't have purchasing through a standard distributor. That said, Fstoppers has purchased many of it's cameras through gray market purchases without issue. In addition, this eBay seller seems to have a very high rating which makes us more comfortable recommending the purchase. Check out the deal HERE.
