But, camera makers realized the potential in photographing at 360 degrees, they’ve started making dedicated 360 cameras. This means that instead of 3D printing (or worse, buying) a 360 rig, you can buy a small camera like the Theta S and only use one camera.
Good morning guys! JP here again with another image breakdown. I’ve been friends with Mario for quite some time now and his recent work just blew me away, so I wanted to get in touch with him and get a step through of his some of his latest work.
Today he’ll be sharing how he blended CGI into his composition to make an album cover for the artist Carlos Contra. Take it away Mario! *points to Mario*.
Grand Teton National Park is in the northwest of the U.S state of Wyoming and it’s an eye candy. The park “boasts an awe-inspiring array of pristine wilderness, glacial lakes, winding rivers, diverse wildlife, and the magnificent Teton Range. Journey with More Than Just Parks as we explore a land dominated by towering peaks, apex predators, and majestic beauty“.
Videographers Will and Jim Pattiz spent about a month at the park shooting vast amounts of timelapse footage.
Have you ever seen an f/0.7 lens? Stanley Kubrick used one regularly.
If you are lucky enough to be in San Francisco right now, you can pay a visit to the Stanley Kubrick Exhibition (it’s curently playing at the contemporary jewish museum). If not, former Mythbuster Adam Savage takes you on a filmed tour.
Many of us wish we could give up our jobs to go and follow our passion. For a very lucky few, our job is our passion. Romanian photographer Mihaela Noroc quit her job to follow hers in 2013.
Since then, she’s travelled the globe to capture the beauty in diversity around the world for an amazing project titled The Atlas of Beauty.
The web have been sizzling with Kaveret’s drone footage of a bride walking the aisle. It is a gorgeous cinematic footage of a wedding at Pelican hill at Newport beach, California.
The footage was taken using a Phantom 4 and it is quite different from any drone wedding video you have seen to date. We sat down with Adam Rubin, Kaveret’s CEO and drone operator to break this shot down.
Portfolio. Gosh that can be a scary word. When you have to compile a greatest hits of your photography life and future commissions and your career can depend on it, getting it right is a big deal.
There is a lot of advice out there. But which advice should you take and what should you jettison? I’ve read through the books that I own (by authors and photographers including Demetrius Fordham, Haje Jan Kamps, and Lara Jade) and trawled the net and put together a summary. You can think of it as a portfolio of portfolios, if you like.
A question I get asked often is, ‘where do you find the great locations to shoot at?’ Or ‘how do you find the cool looking location images you use in your composites?’
Well the answer is easy. I get out of the studio and I explore!!!! I recently purchased a compact Sony A5000 camera especially for my little adventures. My main shooting camera, I felt is too heavy and cumbersome for my location scouts. I needed something small, easy to carry and something that still shoots in RAW.
This weekend I went to visit my Grandparents in the coastal town of Scarborough in the UK. Scarborough is a town on the North sea, in North Yorkshire. It was founded in the Viking times, and has had a colourful history. With its castle sat proudly on the limestone cliff, it was the UK’s first seaside destination. I’ve been coming to (my Grandparents) Scarborough for over 25 years, it holds many precious memories. Tales I like to tell my son as we walk along the beachfront. I would claim to know every street in Scarborough or so I thought.
Sometimes, when you’re out making photographs, you have a bad day. Other times, you have a really bad day. This seems to be the latter after a photographer allegedly drove a $350,000 Lamborghini Aventador through a car showroom window.
The Lancashire Evening Post reports that a man, believed to be the photographer, got behind the wheel of the Aventador in order to reposition it slightly for a better shot during a shoot at Amari Supercars in Preston, England.
Stabilising small cameras such as GoPros can be tricky. Their light weigh makes them particularly vulnerable to things like wind or fast movements. There are commercial handheld options out there to give you smoother footage, like the Lanparte HHG-01 or the Ikan Fly-X3-Plus, but they can be a little pricey.
While it’s not going to give quite the steadiness you’ll get with either of the options mentioned above, this solution from Product Tank is a very cheap and extremely accessible alternative.
