Today I’m out here with Chanda AM, and Chanda will help me illustrate how to balance ambient light with strobes. I love shooting in this situation with ambient light and strobe light. I want to be able to combine the ambient light here in this beautiful area with strobes. So the way I generally do this is:
The GoPro Hero 9 Black was just officially announced only 9 days ago. But as usually happens, one gets into the hands of a lucky individuals few rather quickly (sometimes before it’s even been announced). One such individual is YouTuber the daniel life. He hasn’t posted a review of the camera yet, but he has posted is a mammoth long tutorial going over the Hero 9 Black’s feature set.
He’s actually done two videos – one in English (above) and one in German (below) – and each is over an hour and a half long going over just about every topic you can imagine. It’s designed to help everybody from complete beginners through to those who are a little more advanced and just want to find out more about specific features.
Light has many properties that we need to learn if we want to control it and improve our photography. One of them is light falloff: the property of light to become less and less bright the further it travels from its source. Most of us know this feature as the Inverse Square Law, and it involves quite a lot of math. Well, at least too much for my taste.
If like me you also don’t really like math, you’ll love this video from Adorama. Photographer Gavin Hoey will show you what light fall off looks like in the real world, and his demonstration is visual rather than mathematical.
The Thing is arguably one of sci-fi’s finest masterpieces, of that there is no doubt. Released in 1982, its creators didn’t have access to even the most modest of modern CG tools that can run on just about everybody’s desktop or laptop computer today. They had to do things practically. For real. In-camera.
Amongst those things shot practically is the initial opening title sequence. After initially seeing a ship hurtling towards the earth, the words “THE THING” are burned into the screen. But how exactly was it done? In this video, Tommy and the team at InCamera walk us through a recreation, sticking as closely to the original techniques as possible.
If you use a Sony camera for video work, you may not really like the colors that it produces. Luckily, there are ways to fix it and make those skin tones look natural. Caleb Pike of DSLR Video Shooter shares some tips and his picture profile settings to help you nail those colors the next time you shoot a video with your Sony.
When you set up to shoot an interview, the angles and frames you choose can make or break the video. In this post, we will go over ten different angles that you can use when shooting interviews. You can think of it as a personal cheat sheet for interviews. Some of the ideas are for your A-camera, and some are for B-cam. We used a RED Dragon on a Manfrotto 645 FAST and 504x head as our A-cam, and a BMPCC 4K on a Manfrotto 635 FAST and an old MVH500AH head.
Face swapping apps have been quite popular and can create quite fun results. But for the sake of your creative project, you may want to turn it up a notch and make it look more realistic. For this, you will need more advanced programs, but don’t worry, it’s not as complicated as it sounds. In this video from Adorama, Pye Jirsa will show you how to swap faces in three simple steps using Lightroom and Photoshop.

Product photography can be a lot of fun, especially when you start to experiment with light painting. In this video, photographer Mark Duffy shows us how he does his long exposure product photography using the new KYU 6 LED lights and Godox MS300 strobes in the studio on a pair of trainers (or “sneakers”, for those of you in the US).
