Shooting portraits in the middle of a road isn’t something that many photographers do. Some roads, though, are worth it, especially when they have such good looking surroundings.
Knowing what to shoot and learning how to tell a story in your videos can be a challenge. It’s something you pick up with over time with experience, but where do you begin?
Rob Nelson’s latest video on Rob & Jonas’ Filmmaking Tips helps get you started with some solid story telling advice. While the primary subject is video footage, the same principles also apply to telling stories with a series of photographs, too.
Essentially, they’re digital AlienBees, but smaller, and with a few cool new features. Photographer Nino Batista got his hands on the first two off the production line and put together this video to test their limits and offer up his review on how well they perform.
According to their website “Prisma transforms your photos into artworks using the styles of famous artists”. District 7 Media have taken it to the extreme by re-shooting timelapse of China using the Prisma app.
I will say, right off the bat, the photography itself is pretty amazing, but this video recently released by Canon is eerily similar to a D500 & SB-5000 promo video Nikon put out with Keith Ladzinski back in April.
Canon’s “The Shot”, with Krystle Wright takes some speedlights and mounts them on drones in order to be able to get the flashes where no light stand can go, just like Nikon did. In fact, the videos are so similar they even used the same company, Falkor Aerials to fly the drone-mounted speedlights.
Not long ago, we showed you an amazing 12K timelapse from Joe Capra shot on the Phase One XF IQ3 100MP camera. Why shoot in 12K if there’s no platform which supports it and no devices capable of playing back that resolution? For more creative zoom options in post.
The final timelapse video was output and uploaded to YouTube in 1080p, but in this new behind the scenes video, Joe talks to us about the how and why of creating the video from initial concept to wrapping up the post production.
At some point or another, most of us that shoot video have to create a clip sliding past, or moving around some kind of static object. Perhaps something small, like a pair of rings for wedding shooters, or it could be something as large as a car.
Recently, The Try Guys at BuzzFeed were Photoshopped to produce their ideal male body types, as a way to explore how the world of Photoshop and retouching affects men. With such an overwhelming experience and response, especially from women, they started thinking about how the process female subjects, too.
In their new video, they recreate several famous magazine cover shots involving Kim Kardashian, Madonna, and others to see the kind of retouching that goes into producing images of women for magazines and advertising compared to what’s actually even possible in the real world.
There’s no question that Sony make some ridiculously good cameras (don’t tell Udi I said that), but one of the things that seems to have let them down is their flash capability and interoperability with third party flash units.
It’s one of the things that stops people switching to Sony, and it’s one of the biggest complains I hear from Sony users. Now, Phottix, are here to fix the situation with the release of their new Odin II TTL triggers for Sony.
