"Jamel Shabazz: New York Street Photographer" Documentary Trailer


 by Kenzo Digital

Jamel Shabazz has been documenting the ‘Urban Life’ for over 30 years. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY he picked up his first camera at the age of 15 and proceeded to record the world around him.

Jamel has drawn inspiration from the great James Van Der Zee, Gordon Parks, Robert Capa, Chester, Higgins and Eli Reed.

The author of 3 monographs, ‘Back in the Days’, ‘The Last Sunday in June’ and ‘A Time Before Crack, Jamel is presently working on his fourth book, entitled ‘The 90’s'. (via jamelshabazz.com )

Jamel Shabazz has been cruising the city for over 30 years. He uses his camera to capture the love and the smiles.


“He did with pictures what rappers did with words,” said Bill Adler, a hip-hop historian and photography aficionado. “He made these folks visible the way rap made them audible. He took everyday people and turned them into icons. Nobody told him to do this. He just went out and struck gold.”

A day in the life of a memory card of runwayphotographer Peter Stigter in New York


Let's follow this memory card of Peter Stigter on his journey through New York City. This digital memory travels from show to show and finally ends up in the hands of photo-editor Lisa Klappe.

It's a hectic job, being a runwayphotographer. Racing through the city, meeting editors, dragging your box up and down the stairs, getting you equipment ready. And then, finally the show starts. Suddenly everything becomes quiet.

Could any photographer be a "street photographer"? | [FRAMED] Seattle Challenge


Street photography. How hard can it be? All you do is stroll up to a random stranger on the street and snap a photo right? Nuh- uh. Street photography takes people skills, confidence, quick thinking skills and the ability to capture a photo before that subject passes you by. Today, we're taking three different talents who have never taken street-style photos to allow them to experience art in a whole new fashion.

Three photographers, with three different styles, jumping out of their comfort zones. Even though they don't know what they're getting themselves into today, these three groups of photographers are up to the challenge.

Behind the scene video from our photo shoot for the debut cd of a r'n'b singer called "Junior" at the club TO-12 in Stuttgart (Germany).

We had the opportunity to shoot at different places in the club. I used two Profoto D1 strobes and most of the time the soft light reflector. Most shots were done with the 24-70mm 1:2,8G and the 85mm 1:1.4G on the Nikon D3s.

Setup to get Matrix effect with 48 Nikon D700 : The 360 Project - ( PART II )


“The 360 Project” is an exploration into the crossroads of photography and motion pictures. It is a study of peak dance movements, captured simultaneously by 48 cameras aligned in a circle.

There are two components to “The 360 Project” – “Ballet 360” features ballerinas from Canada’s National Ballet School, “Krump 360” features dancers from Northbuck Krump. The two styles of dance represent polemic perspectives in both technique and origin – one is beauty, the other beast.

The resulting images resemble a type of digital statue – a frozen, peak moment, embodying the essence of each dance form in 360 degrees.

Cool photo shoot with Alexandra by DREWSHOOTS and LightenUpandShoot


Sooo Mike(y) from LightenUpandShoot.com stopped thru Fort Lauderdale again and I called up Awesome Alex and she was like "of course I'll meet you tomorrow morning at 6:30am on a beach that's 30 minutes from my house after I do my own make-up and hair with no notice".


Mikey did some shooting and shot some video, as did I. My sleep patterns were all messed up and I really kinda didn't sleep before this shoot. I was almost in rare form, but I think I work well in such circumstances. When we left the beach and went down Las Olas the sun was higher and we were becoming human toast. We had our fill, and called it a day!

Creating Great Landscape Photographs using a light meter


Many of us are passionate about landscape photography, but many have difficulty capturing an image that successfully conveys the beauty and feeling of a place. We all take these images because there is something about what we are seeing that inspires us and causes an emotional response.

What makes for a great landscape photograph and what distinguishes it from a snapshot? What are the composition issues that can make or break a shot? Why are you taking the picture in the first place?

Light, geography, the time of day, and the capabilities of your camera will all contribute to a great landscape photograph. Knowing the limitations and learning your tools will help end the frustration of missing a great shot or ending up with a poorly exposed image beyond rescue. One of the tools we’ll use is a Sekonic L-758DR handheld light meter. This meter offers a combination of incident and spot-metering capabilities to give us all the information we need to get the best exposure possible. It can also provide the exact exposure information needed for the best results when compositing high dynamic range (HDR) images.

Join us as we explore many of the aspects that can make for a great landscape photograph. Learn to create an image that tells a story, invites you to linger and explore, and engages all of your senses as you are drawn into the place—that’s what makes for a great landscape photograph.

How to build a relationship with your clients before a portrait session..


Todd Kustman, owner of KenMar, donated three days during his busy season to teach me photography/lighting principles when I decided that I couldn't fit the courses into my schedule. I, in tern, offered to shoot some promotional footage for him to help potential high school seniors prepare for their senior portrait experience, while also aiming to build my own professional film portfolio.

I was photographed by Todd Kustman back in 2008 for my senior photographs and I remember that I was not fully prepared for all the things I could potentially do during my photo-shoot. Todd builds a strong relationship with each of his clients before he photographs them, in this way he not only captures their appearance but their personality as well. I'm proud to call him a friend and I was more than happy donating my time in editing in producing for him.

John Keatley Advertising and Editorial Portraiture


John Keatley didn't find photography, it seemed to find him. Utilizing his love of humor and sense of comedy, Keatley found his honest approach and artistic style. John settled in Seattle by way of northern California, trading steady sunshine for sun-breaks. By starting his work at a local media group, he found himself taking photos of some of the most prestigious business professionals and biggest celebrity names in the industry. One close to our photography home, the one and only Annie Liebovitz. But that's just the beginning of his long list of names to add to his extraordinary resume.

John specializes in advertising and editorial portrait photography but has spent time worldwide with his incredible charitable work. Even though he has worked with big names and possesses an extraordinary talent, his down to earth nature and giving-back stance makes us admire him even more.

Japanise rock star Tsuyoshi Nagabuchi: photo session with photographer LESLIE KEE


The Singapore-born and Tokyo-based Leslie Kee has a thick resume, photographing such uber-celebs as Ayumi Hamasaki, Zhang Ziyi, Kumi Koda, Choi Ho Jin and Beyonce among countless others for magazines, books, posters and commercials.

Kee was born in Singapore to a prostitute mother who died when he was 13, leaving him to be raised by his grandmother and aunt. Japanese entertainment, especially music idols such as Seiko Matsuda, appealed to Kee and he came to Tokyo as a student to learn Japanese and photography, working two, sometimes three part-time jobs at a time to survive.

“Those were the hardest years of my life. I came from a home in Singapore that subsisted on the roots of sprouts that were cut off to be prepared for the elite class. I was the first in my family to attend college. The hardest part was always wondering if I would be approved for a visa or not,” says Kee.

Strobist: Two Speedlights to get professional pictures by Damien Lovegrove


Damien learned his trade as a cameraman and lighting director during 14 years at the BBC, working on programmes such as the Clothes Show, Top of the Pops and Casualty. Days off from filming were often spent taking photographs for a variety of top name clients including Peugeot, Motorola, and Adidas. Then Julie made an entrance in his life and he realised that photography wasn’t the only thing he was passionate about! She comes a very close second (yes, that is a joke) and anyone who has met Damien can’t fail to be inspired and motivated by his enthusiasm for his second career. So much so that once you get him started on a subject it’s hard to shut him up…( read more here )

Shooting with flour X-System


On the occasion of the 50th Series had something special today after asking me a lot, shoot a flour. The idea is not new and is also not mine, but the image results are quite impressive and I must say this gigantic mess was worth it.

A few more details about the colors I wanted to make as compatible as possible for dei models and have used only natural colors: spinach powder, beetroot powder and ultramarine chalk ( http://www.colores-nativi.de/tag/ultramarin/Ultramarinblau-Pigment-1kg.html ) Except for the ultramarine the flour, however, was only very weakly stained. Nevertheless, I would do it again so as long as the flour has only a color cast, it is easily possible to adjust the image processing, the desired color.

The flash system again came the new X-System of multiple flash is used, which due to its short flash duration to freeze the flour is perfect clouds in the air.

Using a Crane: A lighting Lesson by Jay P. Morgan.


By Jay P. Morgan.

I have been working on a pilot pitch reel for a company here in Los Angeles. It's about a man who has a near death experience and ends up in a morgue.

I used a Kessler crane with an ikan monitor to get some of the more dramatic shots of the piece. There was a very deliberate reason that we used the crane.

We did not use it because we had it or it seems cool (Which it is by the way). Cool or not it's not a good enough reason to use one. We used it because in an interesting way we were able to redirect the viewer to the things that we thought were the most important in the shot. We used it to create dramatic effect and show how lost in a large world our man was.

We used it to create surprise. When used correctly cranes are a very powerful tool. Cranes use to be too expensive for most people but that is no longer the case. They are reasonable to rent and not too expensive to buy. In this video you will gain a few tips on how to use a crane.

Keep the cameras rolling! Jay P. Morgan

Drewshoots and Lightenupandshoot photoshoot with Julia (Part II)


I got together with Mikey from lightenupandshoot.com and we shot around Fort Lauderdale with Julia. Besides the 100ºF + heat it was a fine time.

Julia is an actress/model and lives in Brooklyn, NY. She's pretty wild and has a lot of energy. If she were so inclined, she would swim to the bottom of a reef and spear dinner for you.



One more time, the true is you really do not need an expensive camera to get amazing pictures. Drewshoots uses sometimes an old Nikon D40 and a D7000 ( a great camera ) with Nikon 35mm 1.8G.

The final images:


Camera: Nikon D40 | Exposure:1/400 | Aperture: f/6.3 | Focal Length: 35 mm | ISO Speed: 200

Julia Collier BTS

Camera: Nikon D7000 | Exposure:1/250 | Aperture: f/10.0 | Focal Length: 35 mm | ISO Speed: 100

beauty dish
vagabond mini


Camera: Nikon D40 | Exposure: 1/800 | Aperture: f/5.0 | Focal Length: 35 mm | ISO Speed: 200

 Met up with Mikey from lightenupandshoot, and brought Julia along for a sweltering shoot under the hot Fort Lauderdale sun. It was really freaking hot.


Camera: Nikon D40 | Exposure:1/400 | Aperture: f/6.3 | Focal Length: 35 mm | ISO Speed: 200

Genus ND Filter and use an aperture of 1.8 in full sun


 The newest addition to the Backpacker Studio, a neutral density "ND" filter. ND filters reduce the amount of light entering the camera's sensor (like putting on a pair of sunglasses for your camera). Why would you want to do this? Imagine if you could shoot with an aperture of 1.8 in full sun or have a long shutter speed of 30 seconds in the middle of the day. The Genus ND affects the exposure from 2 -8 stops of light without changing color.

Clinton Tudor - Anatomy of a photoshoot - BMXlife magazine


Bertrand and I were asked to come and film what was happening behind the scene of a photoshoot for an australian BMX publication.
So, Clinton Tudor, the photographer was kind enough to give us an interview that we used as a backbone to drive the whole narrative through the three locations we shot in.
We were fortunate enough to have rider Liam Marshall and his mates as they were pulling some nice tricks right under our lenses.

On a more technical side, it was shot with a Lumix GH2 with some Pentax lenses and the Canon 550D with a 10-20 zoom lens and and a 50mm prime.

Photohgrapher: Clinton Tudor
Rider: Liam Marshall
Shot and edited: Bertrand Remault & Nicolas Plaire

Here's a quick clip that Juan Pons and I shot during the making of our DVD on how to shoot HD videos.

Yes, the clip jumps during Juan's fancy two-step - but I did that on purpose... after being inspired by the Gregory Brothers' "Backin' Up" song.

Hey, this video is just for fun.

Joel Grimes Composite Photography


Joel was first introduced to photography his freshman year in high school and from the very beginning it was a perfect match. By the time he began college, his passion for the photographic process was all consuming.

After receiving a BFA degree from the University of Arizona in 1984, Joel served a three month assisting stint in LA and soon after set up a commercial studio working out of Denver Colorado.

For over 26 years he worked with many of the top advertising agencies across the globe for clients such as AARP, Abbott, Arizona Office of Tourism, AT&T, Febreze, Discovery Cannel, Goldman Sachs, Hewlett Packard, Honda, Hyatt, Phillips 66 Aviation, Pfizer Qwest, Sony, Sturm Ruger & Co, Visa, Volvo, Xcel Energy and most recently Red Bull. Over the years his assignments have taken him to every state across the USA and to over fifty countries around the globe.

In 1990 he produced his first coffee table book, 'Navajo, Portrait of a Nation' which received a number of photographic and design awards as well as an eighteen-month solo exhibit at the Smithsonian American History museum.

Joel considers himself an ambassador for the photographic creative process by teaching workshops and lectures across the globe. "I feel that by being an open book with my process I have an opportunity to inspire others to follow their dreams and passions to create".

Currently, Joel resides in Pasadena CA with his wife and his two boys. He is widely known for his amazing digital composites, and today, he shows us just that. Plus, he sings a song or two and shares his wisdom, his life, and his passion as we enjoy his amazing success in celebrating light, art , and talent....all while being color blind.

Homemade "remedies" for light reflection and diffusion by Tri-Digital Group


Outside the Softbox: Week 9

Lets face it, photographers are everywhere. The cameras are so incredible now days that it's easy to think that we can run a fantastic business, take amazing photos, and charge pennies for hard work. It's so easy to follow the trends of what "the other guy" is doing and we lose focus on learning simple business tactics or expanding our creativity.

Outside the Softbox is an educational discussion or tutorial with various artists that help us all think "outside the box" when dealing with our photos, creative light or our photography business.

This week we'll hear from the Tri-Digital Group. Greg Sims, Jim Armstrong and Matt Hagler are known for their large commercial clients with over 20 years of experience in the industry, plus their zany personality of experimentation with all of their shoots. This week, Matt explains several different homemade "remedies" for light reflection and diffusion.
