No matter if you’re a hobbyist or you’re paid for your photography, I’m sure you’ve come across all sorts of unpleasant situations. In this video, Daniel Norton reflects on some of the situations that we’ve all been through. Snobbism and vanity are something we’ve all encountered. To be honest, we may even be vain or snobbish to some extent, and maybe we’ve done some of the things he mentions. This video is a bit of a rant, but it’s an important reminder of what not to do and how to be a better human being.
360° cameras have become much more readily available over the last couple of years and most of us own or can get our hands on at least one of those these days. Both types of camera offer a lot of versatility, but they’re not always that easy to film with, especially if you’re used to bigger cameras. But they both can offer some great advantages.
In this video, Jordy at Cinecom takes the Insta360 ONE R out for a spin with both the 4K action camera module and the 360° module, to show us nine creative filmmaking techniques you can use to step up your game when shooting with small cameras.
Irix has recently expanded their cinema line of lenses by the addition of a new wide-angle lens, the 15mm T2.6. We have received one of the first batches of this lens, and we started putting it to the test. The results so far are very promising.
As of right now, IRIX has 3 Lenses in their cine-lens lineup. They have the 45mm T1.5, which we reviewed here, the 150mm T3.0, and their 11mm T4.3. With the addition of their new 15mm T2.6, we see that IRIX is slowly building quite the portfolio of lenses. At first, I wondered if the 15mm would maybe be a little too wide and close to the 11mm. However, after some thinking, I thought that this lens would have a lot of use-cases for super 35 and my Blackmagic P4k.
Retouching hair in Photoshop requires a lot of patience and skill. Thankfully, there are amazing tutorials out there to help you master it, and this one comes from Pratik Naik.

We all run into issues during the course of our shoots, whether they be for photos or video. We pick up little tricks here and there to help us with our future workflow going forward. Caleb Pike is no exception, and in this video, he tells us his top ten “hacks” to help make his life a little easier when shooting video.
It’s been long-awaited and after a development announcement in March, Pentax has now officially announced the HD PENTAX-D FA★ 85mm F1.4 SDM AW, ahead of its original “late 2020” target. This is the second fixed focal length lens added in Pentax’s newest “Star” lens series, adding to the 50mm f/1.4 released in 2018.
There was some speculation that the Pentax 85mm was simply a rehoused Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art, but now that the optical formula for the new 85mm f/1.4 has been released, I think it’s a pretty safe bet to say that it isn’t.
Architecture is an art form, it is a branch of science, it is a business, it is the architect’s personal expression as well as that of the commissioner. So, it is not surprising that I see architectural photography as overlapping various forms, kinds, branches of photography.
This post will help me crystallize my ideas of architectural photography as I get ready for another round-table discussion at the Film Photographers Association.
Have you seen those “Bingo cards” going around Instagram lately. I’ve done one for readers, one for travelers, and Brandon Woelfel now made one for photographers. It contains all those terrible things we’ve done and those that have happened to us, but there are some cool ones too. In this hilarious video, Jessica Kobeissi goes through the Bingo card, “confessing all the terrible things she’s done as a photographer.” Follow along and see if you’ve done them too.
We’ve heard of nightmare photographers before, but here’s one of the most bizarre story I’ve heard so far. Three months before he was supposed to get married, Justin Montney’s fiancée suddenly died. Since the wedding was not going to take place, he asked the wedding videographer for a refund. But what he got was public bullying, “Life’s a b**ch, Justin” and “We hope you sob and cry all day for what would have been your wedding day.”
