I've never been too impressed with the job of an "actor." I guess I've always thought that most people are capable of acting (pretending), they've just never tried it. I just ran across Benedict Cumberbatch's motion capture performance for the Hobbit and I have to say I was impressed.
I fly with photo/video gear a lot and most of the time I am forced to check at least a portion of my equipment. I usually try to carry on my most fragile gear (cameras and lenses) but sometimes even that isn't possible. After watching this video I might have to throw a fit the next time they tell me that all of the over head bins are full.
Jason Paul and Pasha Petkuns teamed up with Red Bull to produce the most unique freerunning video that I've ever seen. They begin at the upside down house in Germany but quickly move to perspective/depth of field tricks that any of us are capable of reproducing.
Photographing The World BTS episode 6 is finally here and this is the one many of you have been waiting for. At this point in the series I had flown this drone in 7 different countries in snow and rain, and I even crashed it into the side of an ice cave but it kept on working. The streak finally ends in New Zealand when I have my first and only serious crash.
Last week I made a list of 10 of my favorite photographers to follow on Fstoppers and a few people complained that too many of them were "portrait" photographers. I've scoured the community again and today I've created a new list with 10 incredible, additional photographers who shoot much more than your average portrait.
The GoPro Hero 4 is a Marvel of human engineering. Waterproof, ultra wide angle, and incredible 4k footage all built into an amazingly small package. I would hate to live in a world without the GoPro; we would be without this amazing footage of a fish jumping out of the water just to bite some guys nipple.
I remember meeting Peter Hurley for the first time. I walked into his studio and saw him shooting a client's headshot with 4 Kino Flo hot lights (normally used for video). I asked him why and he said "The quality of light is just better than strobe. It fills the pores on a human face differently." At the time I was intrigued, but I no longer believe it.
Photographing The World Behind The Scenes Episode 5 is here. In last weeks episode (episode 4) we spent our last day in Iceland, and our photography guide went on a rant about photographers that is so hilarious, his rant has more views than the entire episode. In episode 5 we leave Siggy behind and fly to the opposite side of the world, New Zealand.
We currently own 4 Canon Photo printers and they are the best printers I've personally ever owned. They never clog and they simply work every single time. Right now you can get a brand new Canon Pro-100 photo printer for just $50 from B&H with a little trickery. Let me show you how.
Yesterday Time Magazine released a screenshot of its newest cover. The cover instantly started trending around the internet because the majority of people find it hilarious/just plain bad. Now, Time Magazine has actually joined in the fun and is sharing the hilarious memes created from that cover themselves.
I've always considered Time Magazine to be a pretty high quality publication. Getting your photograph featured on the cover would be a lifetime accomplishment for most photographers. That's why the current cover with Oculus Rift inventor Palmer Luckey is particularly shocking.
Have you every attempted to take a photo or video through glass? What about shooting through a fence or a tree branch? These common obstructions can easily ruin our footage but this new software can completely clean the scenes with just a few reference frames.
