While offering similar specs to their C100 Mark II camera, including a full frame 35mm sized sensor, the ME200S-SH strips out many features such as the LCD, viewfinder, and memory card slot, in order to save in space and weight.
This is one of those topics that can become extremely complicated very quickly, but if you have a love of macro photography and a passion for electronics, this could be just the project to get you fired up.
Using a process called “Reflectance Transformation Imaging” (RTI), whereby light is studied hitting the surface of an object from multiple angles to produce a sequence of images, we’re suddenly able to see a lot of detail that would otherwise be missed in our normal macro photography.
Watch and learn as fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski takes us on a journey from concept to completion of a photo shoot on the streets of New York City.
While the video does build on the foundation of a magazine shoot, almost all of the tips and suggestions mentioned can apply to pretty much any session you might shoot, whether it’s a commission for a client, a personal project with friends, or a professional collaboration to pad your respective portfolios.
Petzval lenses are nothing new, but that’s kind of the point. Dating back as far as 1840, Petzval lenses offer a unique look to our images that other lenses simply can’t match, and while it may not be to everybody’s tastes, one can certainly see the allure.
HDR tonemapping is the Marmite of photography. It’s something people either love or they hate, but even if you hate it, when used subtly it’s a technique that can still help to bring back some shadow and highlight detail where you need it.
This quick tip from photographer and YouTuber Jimmy McIntyre shows you a method for creating an fake HDR-like look from a single exposure within Photoshop, that you can easily adjust and tweak to suit your image’s needs.
When it comes to the unlikely and improbable, few overcome it better than The Impossible Project. It seems hard to imagine that we’d be seeing the launch of a new film camera in 2016, but that’s exactly what’s happened.
Of course, the new I-1 camera does contain some very handy and modern features, not found in the other instant alternatives, such as a built in “advanced ring flash”, autofocus, and BlueTooth connectivity for full manual control from your mobile device.
Known around the world for their self-assembly furniture and a range of products you can repurpose for photography, Ikea wants to help you with your photography, by slowing you down and helping you to get the one shot that matters.
Literally, one shot, that’s it. Titled “Klikk”, the Ikea Belgium app aims to force photographers to think more carefully on the composition, light, and timing of their photographs, rather than firing off a few dozen, picking the best and running it through some crazy filter.
When it comes to the names of those that have changed the photography world over the years, fashion photographer David Bailey is often one of the first that comes to mind. Leading the fashion photography of the 60s with cohorts Terence Donovan and Brian Duffy, they captured and created the “Swinging London”, and set the stage for things to come.
Coming back to today, we have John Rankin Waddell (aka Rankin), a high profile fashion photographer based in London, who in 2008 made a documentary entitled “Seven Photographs that Changed Fashion” in which creates his own tributes to iconic images by Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, David Bailey, Guy Bourdin, Cecil Beaton, and Erwin Blumenfeld.
Selfies are just a part of our culture today, whether stills or video, but they have been known to land people in hot water a time or two. Sometimes the consequences are simply a little embarrassment, sometimes very severe (and rightly so).
In what seems more suited to ridicule on America’s Dumbest Criminals, California resident Wayne Allen Huntsman captured a video selfie with the beginnings of what would become known as the King Fire, a wildfire that scorched over almost 100,000 acres of land in El Dorado County, California in 2014.
