If you have a TLR camera you can try this simple trick, that can help you to focus more easily. And if you like, you can share this content with your friends.
I just love seeing a clever use of household items for filmmaking and photography. But did you know that Amazon Prime show Hand of God has some awesome DIY solutions in certain scenes? The show’s director of photography Rasmus Heise used a simple salad bowl to create a “door spy hole” effect, and he shared with us a couple of BTS photos from the shoot, as well as the end result.
Colour space is one of the most confusing topics in digital photography. Every day I see questions popping up on social media about them. The most common one being something along the lines of “Why does the colour on Facebook not look like it did in Photoshop?”
Well, here to demystify colour spaces and talk about LAB, Adobe RGB 1998, ProPhotoRGB and sRGB is Aaron Nace from Phlearn. He breaks down the differences between them, tips on how to choose which colour space to work in and which to use when exporting your final images.
Back in June 2017, a photo of Donald Trump crashing a wedding at his golf course resort went viral. Jonathan Otto took the photo, shared it with a wedding guest, and it quickly got all over the internet – and ended up in the media. After Otto found it out, he filed a lawsuit. And recently, the court ruled that media using a snapshot from someone’s social network doesn’t constitute a fair use.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Olympus when it comes to their higher end bodies. The last big announcement, really, was the OM-D E-M1 Mark II back at Photokina 2016. But now it looks like they have a new one on the way. The Olympus OM-D E-M1X. And the first photos of it have leaked via 43Rumors.
A few days ago, a photo “debunking” protest fires in Paris appeared on Twitter and it quickly went viral. It shows two images side-by-side “proving” that the fire was actually harmless, but only shot from a low angle so it appears huge. However, when this “fact checker” was fact checked, it turned out that it was actually fake: reportedly , the two photos weren’t only taken on different days, but also in different parts of the city.
Windows users thought this day would never come, but finally, Adobe Premiere Pro can now export Apple ProRes files on Windows. Yes, you heard that right. Apple ProRes export. On Windows.
It comes as part of the new 13.0.2 update for Premiere Pro CC, along with HEIF import for files created on iOS devices and ProRes HDR import. It also offers improved performance with Canon Cinema RAW Light on multicore processors.
This is one of those things that’s definitely going to split people up into two camps. In one, there’s those who’ll think it’s awesome, and in the other, there’s those who believe that the types of locations to which this app allows access should remain secret.
You guys can discuss the camps to which you belong in the comments, but let me introduce you to Forgotten, a new mobile app for iOS and Android. It’s an app to help you discover new place to shoot or “sell” your locations. It’s the latter part of that which Forgotten says makes them different from similar apps and services that have popped up in the past.
Whether you’re for or against smartphone filmmaking, you can’t deny that some creators make the best out of camera phones. On its YouTube channel, Apple has recently published a wonderful short documentary shot entirely on iPhone XS. It tells a story of Japan’s “decotora” or “decoration trucks” and it was shot by Jiro Konami.
