After a brief explanation of the science behind how a gun fires, Destin from Smarter Everyday, delves right into the science behind capturing gun fire with a camera. What makes it even cooler is that some of these guns have multiple feet of muzzle flash pouring out of their barrels along with a bullet traveling […]
What is cooler than getting to see one of the first Lamborghini Aventadors that was shipped to North America? Just ask Blair Bunting, who was fortunate enough to photograph it. The shoot, which took place in Scottsdale, Arizona, is a perfect example of getting the job done right with minimal equipment. Of course, the term […]
With all the amazing time lapse videos that have been making their way to the interwebs lately, you start to wonder if there is even an room for improvement anymore. Then a video like this surfaces and we become awestruck all over again. Meticulously crafted together using over 170,000 still photographs, take a moment and escape to Rio for a Carnaval celebration like no other. A motorized head assisted with most of the pans and tilts, however, all of the travelings were whipped up in post along with a handful of focus point adjustments.
Black and white photography may appear to be simplistic but, the art of taking a monochrome image is a bit more complicated. The following clip gives a few pointers on how to create effective, high contrast images. To create that contrast, Morgan calls on his Hensel Porty Pack to power a key light which is used in combination with a softbox. He also hangs a silk to filter the ambient light, thus softening the hard sun. Morgan also prefers to blowout the background, resulting in sharp silhouettes. To light the model’s faces, he brought out a beauty dish and placed a grid on it which allows a controlled light output from the strobes.
There have been quite a few timelapse videos making an appearance lately and Randy Halverson’s, Temporal Distortion, might just be one of my favorites. His timelapse takes us into remote areas in the United States and shows us what the night sky looks like sans light pollution. It’s magical and if you don’t believe me, have a look for yourself in the following video. Halverson notes that much of what we see in the video is not able to be seen by the naked eye. Halverson called on his Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 60D to capture thousands of images, with exposure times anywhere from 15 to 30 full seconds each.
Professional photographer Jay P. Morgan delivers a pair of information packed video tutorials, this time showing viewers the in’s and out’s of using light reflectors, then combining the reflectors with strobe lights and natural lighting to deliver perfectly lit scenes. In the first tutorial, Morgan discusses white, gold, soft gold, and silver reflectors and explains in which scenarios each color should be used in. The importance of using the sun as a rim light and reflectors as key lights are also stressed in this tutorial. Take a look at the first video and we’ll recap the key points.
Nineteen years later, Ripple experienced a moment much like the one Beilmann endured. Mark swam out to a surf break one afternoon with his 11-pound camera in tow, as he dove under water to avoid being smashed by a wave, he pulled up his camera and fired off a shot of his fellow swimmers. The picture perfectly captured the contorted faces and would be the beginning of a Ripple’s series of photographs, “The Underwater Project”. To hear Mark’s take on the project, take a look at his amazing niche of photography here.
When aviation photographer, Justin De Rueck, takes to the skies, he is usually wielding his Canon 1D Mark IV. During a recent assignment to photograph an L-39 aerobatic team over Cape Town, South Africa, he outfitted his camera with a Canon 24mm f/4 lens, later switching out to a 16-35mm, and strapped himself in for the ride of a lifetime. By the looks of the video, being an honorary member of the aerobatic team is equally stunning and nauseating, as the photographer is forced to work through G-force, rapid twists, sharp turns, and at points flying upside down.
When shooting an animal themed photoshoot at Ray of Light Farm, photographer Adrien Broom called on a PocketWizard MiniTT1 paired with the PocketWizard AC3 ZoneController to provide her the flexibility of controlling her multi-flash setup directly from her camera. The AC3 Zone Controller gave Broom the ability to adjust the zone levels up to six stops and turn her Elinchrome Digital 2400 and Einstein E640 on and off without ever having to touch the speedlights beyond initial setup. It is interesting to observe the setup and process taken to capture these unique photos.
