This is the video of the first day.

Create a setup with continuous light by Chris Collins

| | 0 comments



This is a quick behind the scenes video of a lighting setup we used for a Chevy Volt spec commercial. We got this night for day setup done with a small, energy efficient lighting package. We used Filmgear lights from Birns & Sawyer. The fluorescent lights are very similar to Kinoflo and the tungsten fixtures are very similar to Arri fresnels. However, these units fit better within our budget and worked just as well. Check out how we got it done!

This was a great fun shoot. I couldn't take that much equipment due to the location but as there was plenty of natural light running around all I needed was my camera, good models and plenty of coffee!

Go on set with Bry Cox and see in detail how he uses the PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 for Nikon to overpower the sun and create some fantastic portrait photographs.

Quote: “One of the great things I like about the new mini and flex system is that I don’t have to bring a whole bunch of gear. Normally I’d have to bring a leaf shutter and studio gear to really overpower the sun but with this I can keep my nice, simple set up, no need even for a commander flash, just put the mini on, [then] the flex, shoot at really whatever shutter speed you want to completely overpower the sun, and just really have a ball being creative and creating some fantastic photographs.” (read more..)

Slow Photography camera for Iphone by Dave McCourt

| | 0 comments



The purpose of the Slow Photography camera is to provide a natural stepping-stone between using a mobile phone as a camera before taking the plunge into professional grade digital photography.

The Slow Photography camera has been designed as an alternate route in modern photography and requires the photographer to consider traditional photographic principles such as framing, composition and lens selection. The Slow Photography camera establishes that a mobile phone does not simply have to be a rudimentary point-and-shoot grade camera and takes a literal stance on a mobile phone applications for photography such as 'Hipstamatic'.

A short context video of my the Slow Photography camera, designed as a stepping-stone between photography on your mobile phone and professional grade DSLR photography.

@Neil_vN and @PocketWizard

New Jersey photographer Neil Van Niekerk uses the PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 for Nikon along with the AC3 ZoneController to create dramatic photographs on set.

Quote “AC3 controller there was essential. It helped me in not having to run around like a mad man changing the settings on my three groups of flashes. I could do it all from my camera’s position; I could switch them on and off, I could change them between TTL and manual and change their power ratios all there from the camera, making me look very cool!

Burn and Dodge With Lightroom by David Ziser

I was a JPEG shooter for most of my digital shooting career switching to RAW with the introduction of the Adjustment Brush in LR2. I finally had a way to "Burn and Dodge" the image they same way I did as a custom printer. I was hooked.

Today's tutorial shows how I took a fairly standard room image and transformed it with the magic of Lightroom. The Adjustment Brush and Gradient tools now give the digital control over my images that I had with the darkroom processes I had back in the film days.

The Capital City Garrison is the Eastern Ontario chapter of the 501st Legion, an all-volunteer international Star Wars costuming organization with more than 4,000 members representing more than 45 nations. They lend assistance to charities and provide smiles to those most in need, offering support at charity events, fund raisers, and social functions by appearing as film-authentic Star Wars characters.

I'd been approached by Jody Haucke of the CCG with the idea of helping them create a poster they could sell at their charity events.

Cliff Mautner was recognized by American Photo Magazine as one of the top 10 wedding  photographers in the world. He’s been recognized by WPPI as “one of the top photographers and educators in the world”

Quote: "As a Nikon user, one of the things I’ve been itching for and yearning for is a system that can give me the capability of getting everything off the camera but having the line of sight not be a limitation. I can be a distance away from my subject and I don’t have to be within the line of sight of my transmitter and receiver with this system and I can also now control the output of my speed light…I’ve got a system here that is very lightweight, very user friendly, and very, very accurate. If you’re looking for a speed light solution, and you’re a Nikon shooter, this system is for you. (read more)"

The Mountain by Terje Sorgjerd

| | 0 comments


This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide.
Spain´s highest mountain @(3715m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.

The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. Having been here 10-11 times before I had a long list of must-see locations I wanted to capture for this movie, but I am still not 100% used to carrying around so much gear required for time-lapse movies.

A large sandstorm hit the Sahara Desert on the 9th April (bit.ly/​g3tsDW) and at approx 3am in the night the sandstorm hit me, making it nearly impossible to see the sky with my own eyes.

Interestingly enough my camera was set for a 5 hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds. The Milky Way was shining through the clouds, making the stars sparkle in an interesting way. So if you ever wondered how the Milky Way would look through a Sahara sandstorm, look at 00:32.

A Simple 3 Hard Light Setup: A Lighting Lesson

| | 0 comments



Jay P. Morgan Photography.
In this lesson we will look at lights that don't have any soft boxes or light modifiers. I used heads with reflectors only. In the right setting and with the right subject this can look very good. We did cheat and use 3 pieces of foam core and one umbrella, but looking back now we could have not used the umbrella and been fine. We were shooting Katie Lohmann for a different shoot and she suggested the super Girl outfit. At first I was a little reluctant until I looked at some comic book art and started to see the shot. Things came together and the thought of shooting with hard light was very appealing to me. I was very happy with the outcome.
The video was shot on the Canon 5D, 7D and using Red Rock micro rigs.

:: Behind the Scenes of Royal Romance shoot ::

| | 0 comments



In the town of Ruiel-Malmasion, France sits the Chateau de Malmaison, a mansion which once belonged to the Bonapartes. In fact, Napoleon was away at war when Josephine purchased the manor, much to his dismay because they spent years restoring it, but it eventually became a beloved home to the Bonaparte family. The love story of Napoleon and Josephine is not generally focused on, yet Napoleon was truly a romantic at heart with his lengthy love letters and affections for his wife.

This is the scene that the vendors of Hill City Bride have portrayed through a stylized photo shoot. Much like the deteriorating chateau, our City of Seven Hills has its own array of buildings that are long past their prime yet need some love and attention.

Napoleon’s time was filled with rich colors, opulence and a regal feel, all of which is conveyed through this editorial. In much the same way, brides are able to ponder different eras for ideas and translate them into workable elements for their own wedding day. Whether a wedding is a full rendition of a theme or merely has hints and flairs, it is a couple’s day to transform and make their own.

VISIONS OF VISIONARIES WITH DAVID LACHAPELLE

| | 0 comments



We sat down with legendary photographer David La Chapelle during his stay here in Berlin and really had some time to talk about various aspects of life and his sudden resignation of the commercial magazine world a couple of years ago. I remember meeting David the first about 4 years during an exhibition here in Berlin. The more surprised I was seeing him again and how much he has changed. His whole attitude and aura seems to be so much more calm and balanced. Just normal. No diva attitude, no superficial party mood. It was great listening to this guy, his thoughts, his story, who he was, who he became and why he is how he is.

Havana Brown behind the scenes footage from her photoshoot with Randall Slavin for "WE RUN THE NIGHT"

FORENSIC SECTION

One of the things that distinguish Randall´s style is the use of gels to get unusual colors in his pictures.

In this session, Randall uses a reflector to separate with a blue gel the Havana´s figure from the background(on the right). Probably for the main light, Randal uses a big reflector with an orange gel (long shadow on the left).
