Recently, Caleb Pike showed us his studio on a stand. Now, he’s back with a new video, showing us how we can set up something a little more permanent for YouTube or other content creation by setting up a complete studio on a desk. If you’re regularly shooting at the same location, perhaps doing tutorials, or even just spoken pieces to camera, having a more permanent, efficient setup often makes more sense than one you can wheel around.
Everything leaked early yesterday, but Tamron has now officially launched their new 20mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M 1:2, 24mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M 1:2 and 35mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M 1:2 lenses for Sony E Mount. All three of the new prime lenses have a maximum aperture of f/2.8 and offer 1:2 macro capability. All three lenses are the same size, weigh around the same (215g-ish) and feature the same sized 67mm filter thread.
Smartphones are getting smarter with every new generation, and so are their cameras. But when you combine a good photographer and a good smartphone, the sky is the limit. Quite literally. Zach Honig of The Points Guy recently shot magnificent Northern lights with nothing but his iPhone, handheld at a 3s exposure. He shared his experience and some photos with DIYP, so let’s see how he did it.
We teamed up with the leading brands in the world to give you a killer sweepstakes. We’ll be giving away over $1,500 of goodies to two lucky photographers.
Graduated ND filters will help you get perfect exposure in-camera when shooting landscapes and cityscapes. However, the area they cover sometimes just won’t cut it for the scene you’re trying to capture. Of course, you can sometimes fix it in post, but why not try getting it in-camera?
In this video, Karl Taylor demonstrates a simple, but effective technique of dodging and burning in-camera, relying on the old darkroom method. It will help you nail the exposure, preserve details in highlights, and it could save you some post-processing time.
I don’t know about your country, but people in mine often wear a seatbelt only in order not to pay a ticket. However, being financially fined is definitely not the worst thing that can happen if you don’t buckle up. In fact, wearing a seatbelt can make a difference between life and death. Clemenger BBDO Wellington, a New Zealand-based creative marketing and advertising firm, decided to point it out in a series of moving, powerful portraits of crash survivors.
Teaming up with the New Zealand Transport Agency, Clemenger BBDO Wellington created a series of powerful portraits named Belted Survivors. It’s followed by stories from the people who wouldn’t be here if there weren’t for a seatbelt.
Travelling with gear can be a major pain. Usually, I tend to travel with gear to cover events, so I have to pack a lot of it. But when I’m just travelling for myself, perhaps to visit friends, I generally pack pretty light with my camera gear. It’s easy to overpack, though, if you’re not careful. We often want to take all the gear we own, “just in case”.
In this video, Robby Serrini at TravelClast shows us how he travels with camera gear as a professional travel writer, and the extra items he takes with him to help make his life a little easier while he’s away.
We’ve heard many stories of people doing all sorts of stupid things with their drones. But thankfully, there is also a different kind of people, those who use their drones to do something good. Aerial photographer Steve Fines is one of them. He recently used his drone and a thermal camera to help find a missing six-year-old boy and his dog. Thanks to him, the boy and his pet were located and brought back to safety.
Fujifilm announced the new X-Pro3 camera during the Fujifilm X Summit in Shibuya, Japan last month. The camera is now officially out and ready for preorders, and it brings some improvements over the previous models. But, it also comes with the redesign which relies on old film cameras and combines them with modern digital photography.
