The DELTA test | How does an IQ180 cope with the most extreme conditions?

| | 0 comments



Phase One IQ series digital backs - http://www.phaseone.com/IQ
At DELTA they help ideas meet the real world. See how the Phase One IQ camera system overcome their test.

DELTA exposes the product to everything it could be exposed to in real life. Watch our camera system go through electromagnetic compatibility testing where DELTA checks whether it is disturbing other equipment around.

Then the IQ digital back continues to DELTA's Highly Accelerated Lifetime Testing chamber. Here, they can do anything to try to find weak points in the IQ before the customer does.

In the test, the chamber goes down to minus 80 degrees Celsius with a vibration level of 10 G. Then it goes up in temperature to plus 80 degrees Celsius and up to an even higher vibration level.

Even with vibration peak levels of up to several hundred G's and very fast temperature change rates there's still contact with the IQ and it's still working!

Finding Oregon: compilation of six months of timelapse photography across the state of Oregon

| | 0 comments



Finding Oregon is the compilation of six months of timelapse photography across the state of Oregon, punctuated by a 1600 mile road trip in September. We've filmed the Columbia River Gorge, Mt Hood, Mt Jefferson, the Southwestern Coast, the Alvord Desert, Leslie Gulch, Blue Mountains, Crater Lake, Eagle Cap Wilderness, Deschutes River, and more. We're proud to have touched all four corners of the state; however Oregon is the kind of place that the more you see, the more places there are to still discover.

The greatest challenge with this project was being in the right place at the right time. Night timelapse sequences particularly have an unexpected number of requirements to get the bright, stunning payoff. First, the moon should be around the New Moon phase (no moon) so as not to compete with outshining the stars, so that means we get about 5 days a month window. Next, weather must be cooperative with a dependable expectancy of cloudless skies. Here in Oregon, only the Summer months have good chance of clear skies, so only 1/4 of the year offers good chance of clear skies. So that means, we have three months in the year, with a 5 day window each month to plan with fingers crossed for epic star shooting conditions. That's only 15 days in a year. Then, you hope that something doesn't come up in regular life to pull you away to other obligations on those few days. It is a maddening challenge getting all the factors to line up to be in the right place at the right time. But, when it does happen- it is such a satisfying feeling!

Which is the better studio light equipment?. Broncolor Scoro vs Profoto Pro 8 Air. By Bron Imaging

| | 0 comments



This video examines the Broncolor Scoro and the Profoto Pro 8 Air in a shootout for accuracy of flash duration, shooting at F-16.

With 1 pack and 2 heads, Julian and Amber test both broncolor and Profoto for sharpness of the image in a photo shoot utilizing a freezing motion technique with water.

The broncolor Scoro clearly outscores the Profoto pack with how sharp the water is (with no streaking) and the accuracy of the color temperature.

Behind the scene video from my latest free project called THE BLACK LIGHT WARRIORS. For my lightning I used two 400Watt UV spotlights from left and right in front of the models and one 500Watt hot light with red gel from behind. All pictures were taken with the Nikon D3S and the Nikon 85mm f 1.4.

The video footage was filmed with another Nikon D3S and a Nikon D7000. Here we used the 24-70mm f 2.8 and the 50mm f 1.4.

Executed from concept to launch in-house by our NY Digital team, it is a rear projected, 5’x 3’ interactive touch screen panel made entirely of switchable glass. ( Text by themill.com )

Balancing strobes with day light by Jay P. Morgan ( TheSlantedLens )

| | 0 comments




In this Slanted Lens Lesson we are going to show you how to balance strobes with daylight. When I shoot on location I usually use the ambient light {Sun or Shade) as one of my light sources in the scene and then bring in strobes to make that light more interesting.

Using strobes and daylight together is most successful when I control the ambient with the shutter speed and the strobes with the aperture. I use a low ISO and then pick an aperture based on how much I want in focus and how much power I can get from the strobes.

If my strobes can give me f8 then I know that I need to adjust my shutter speed up and down to balance the sun light with the strobes at F8. The strobe is constant so the aperture is constant but the sun is changing so my shutter speed will be changing.

This is a successful process that allows for the constant changing of the sun. If I want the sun as the rim light then I will lengthen the shutter speed to allow the sun to be one stop brighter than my strobes. With practice this process will make more sense and become very intuitive.

This was a great shoot that we did out at Universal Studios Back lot that illustrates this principle.

David Hobby interview with Catherine Hall and Leo Laporte ( TWiT Photo 33)

| | 0 comments



Hosts: Catherine Hall and Leo Laporte.

Lighting guru and author of Strobist.com David Hobby joins Leo and Catherine in the Brickhouse to share his lighting secrets for everyone from beginner to pro. David reveals the special place in his heart for DIY lighting techniques, and explains how he is still inspired by the images in life after so many years of shooting.
Guest: David Hobby
Don't miss a chance to watch or listen to your favorite photographers -- download and subscribe to TWiT Photo podcast on iTunes for free.
David's Tips

1) A little fill light from right near (or on) the lens axis can allow you to get away with almost anything else, lighting-wise. Think of it as a "legibility dial" which does not bring a new lighting direction into the frame. Turn it up or down as much as you like, depending on the legibility you need. I think of it as my "CYA" light.

2) When shooting in an iffy location, it is always easier to apologize than to get permission.

If someone in authority is not actively telling you "no," go ahead and try it. If you get busted, act sincere (even if you don't mean it) surprised and ... not particularly smart. Then apologize and be on our way. This works best when combined with a little advance planning / scouting and quick, efficient shooting.

3) When planning a photo, start off by thinking about what you want to accomplish with the photo. That will point you toward many good decisions on subject, location, lighting, etc. Think "big picture," and work backwards to the details.

How to be a funny but professional wedding photographer like Joe Elario

| | 1 comments



One more time, we discover an amazing behind the scenes video with this funny and professional wedding photographer Joe Elario.

To be a wedding photographer is a hard job, and sometimes a undervalued profession, but with Joe teaches us to always be motivated with this making of.



There is nothing like a behind the scenes video! Whenever I have the chance to watch something behind the scenes I’m all about it. Thats why I love sharing with you all what it’s like on a wedding day. I can’t thank my buddy Jason Valentine enough for capturing this for us. Jason is obviously a master behind his lens and one hell of an editor. I mean how do you take a day that was roughly 11 hours and get it into a video thats just under 7 minutes? That takes talent! I couldn’t be happier with this video and can’t wait to hear what you all think of it. Thanks to Tanya & Dylan for letting us film our behind the scenes at their wedding. So sit back, relax and check out An Elario Wedding, by Jason Valentine.

I am sure this will be another hit.

The making of "The Stratos-Sphere Project" by Edouard Janssens

| | 0 comments



Project Stratos-Sphere is a photographic fine-art project created and launched in 2011 by the belgian photographer Edouard Janssens to shoot the curve of our planet and the thin atmosphere we’re living in, from the best possible point of vue, 33 km high, deep into the stratosphere. For real-time status updates, follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

Here is the project description in a nutshell :

  • We launch big meteorological balloons filled with helium 
  • A capsule with cameras (photos & video) is suspended to the balloon 
  • The cameras are programmed to take pictures every 7 seconds, during 2.5 hours 
  • The balloon goes up to 33 km high, deep into the stratosphere, where it explodes after 1.5 hour 
  • A parachute slow down the capsule back to Earth during a 1 hour fall 
  • Three GSM and satellite tracking devices inside the capsule helps us to recover the whole thing, 2,5 hours later, around 50 to 100 km from the launch base. ( via stratos-sphere.com )

The only way to succeed as a photographer by Aaron Nace

| | 0 comments



One day you will want to quit photography. It is not your fault, it may be hard to see coming, but eventually you won't care. I am here to prevent that from happening to you.

Photography is a lot like any other art or passion. In the beginning we get into it because we think it is fun. That flirting turns into love. If we are not careful it will turn into hate.

Somewhere we are realize that in order to get better at something we care about, we have to devote so much time and energy into it that it can consume your life. The constant need to push yourself to outdo yourself. The desire to please others. It becomes very easy here to lose sight of why we stared this in the first place.

By working with an end goal of just being "BETTER", we doom ourselves to failure without knowing it. Basically we are starting a road trip without a destination. If the journey is the goal, you will succeed. If the end is the goal, you will fail trying to find it.

Creating Background Motion: A new Lighting Lesson by Jay P. Morgan

| | 0 comments



In this Slanted Lens lesson we are going to show you how to create background motion by moving the camera and subject together on something with wheels.

I was shooting at a warehouse for one of my clients, trying to come up something different, when putting the camera on the fork lift load came to me.

Its hard sometimes to come up with something fresh when your shooting the same location and subject over and over again. I placed the camera and lights on the fork lift and took shots as we drove around the warehouse. It turned out great and my client was very happy.

Take look at this photographic technique.

Good luck and Keep on click'n!

The Edit: How to be a photographer on film in a digital camera world by Ed Wargin

| | 2 comments



I am a still photographer and I am photographing on E-6 film to tell the story of the Great Lakes landscape before the cessation of film in the next few years. 

I had just finished photographing my way around the Great Lakes and I sent the film off to the lab for processing.

Waiting for film to come back from the lab is the closest thing to being a kid again, kind of like waiting for Christmas so you can rip open that one special present to see what is inside.

Well, three weeks later and the film has arrived. So I thought I would try to capture a little bit of the experience on video - just for fun.

How to create photo art with Magnum Ice Cream and explosives by LOLA Madrid

| | 0 comments


DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME
It was in 2007,when Diver & Aguilar first started exploring the realms of high speed photography and special effects with their projects “light Mode Phantasm” & “Explosions” . 
Working with Detonators, Small explosives, High Speed  trigger and Flash Photography at speeds of up to 1/2000 of a second.The calculations can be fed into the computer to predict the exact moment and therefore depth of the explosion or effect they wish to generate.  

The results,Unique infinite permutations from a world of chaos that paradoxically  could only be created through very precise and technical calculations.The concept of Chaos has already had a lasting effect on science,It is only 50 years since Edward Lorenz first experiments on sensitive dependence and yet many academics  believe that twentieth century science will be known for only three theories: Relativity,Quantum Mechanics and Chaos.
The Campaign was the brain child of Lola Agency in Madrid and the visuals will run as an all media print & digital motion campaign in over 20 countries.

The final images: here
