After cruising out to the West Coast from Pennsylvania in his VW Bus for a photography internship, James Barkman has set his sights on living on his own terms. For him this means perfecting his craft by hunting down photo-ops full time in his Westfalia with Surfboards on top and a Dual-Sport Motorcycle in tow.

James, 22, might not be as conventional when it comes to his living arrangements, but creating a space to be creative in the form of his Westfalia, has pushed him further than he ever thought he'd go.

Stop paying hundreds of dollars (and hundreds of hours) hunting down rustic barn doors for your food photography backdrops. With a 14.46€ sheet of galvanized steel (purchased from your local hardware store) and a handful of easy-to-find tools and paints, you can create stunning, perfect-sized sheets for your shots.



When trying this at home, Brooke Lark recommends working in the sun on a warm day. Your paint will dry so much faster. And, as mentioned in the video: this is an art, not a science. Use these basic techniques and start playing. You really can't mess these backdrops up.



Wondering about the bleach spray? She sprays a light bleach-water rinse between layers to create a variety of textures on my backdrops. Water or water+salt solutions work, as well. No matter what you use, always work outside, in a well ventilated area. And don't forget the mask and plastic gloves. (She  didn't wear gloves and had stained hands for weeks. Damn! There were no syrup-pouring shots for days!)

We can often overlook how much films deliberately use sound to communicate information, story, and tone-- and not only that, we often take for granted how sound fills in, expands and transforms the film beyond the frame, outside of what we actually see.



In this video RocketJump Film School show you how off-screen sound (things we can hear, but aren't directly shown) can shape your story, and the ways you can use it to your advantage.

If you want to know what movie that clip was from, turn on Closed Captioning!**

Hasselblad's new X1D is the first mirrorless camera with a medium format sensor. It shares many attributes with the full-size H6 system, but it's compact enough to go out of the studio and into the real world. It will be available later this year for $8,995.




Today Caleb Pike upgrades his camera bags and cases with new zipper pulls. Seems simple, but these new zipper pulls make a big difference.



Here is the paracord he used for this easy project: http://geni.us/paracord1
