I always love Johnnie Behiri’s behind the scenes looks at how the kit we used is made. He recently treated us to a look inside the Fujifilm factory to see how they make the GFX 100 (and Part 2), but now he’s gone back to Japan to see how Sigma builds the Sigma fp – the world’s smallest full-frame mirrorless camera.
This two-part video series from Johnnie Behiri at Cinema5D covering the creation of the new Fujifilm GFX100 medium format digital camera has been absolutely fantastic to watch. In Part one, Johnnie met with the folks from Fuji to talk about the design and concept of the camera and the challenges faced during that process.
Now, Part 2 has been released which shows the first production run of Fuji GFX100 cameras actually being built. It’s a wonderful insight into the birth of a new camera.
News of Fujifilm working on a 100-megapixel camera has been around since Photokina 2018 last September. Finally, only last month, it was unveiled. The Fuji GFX 100 is Fujifilm’s latest flagship mirrorless medium format camera. The folks from Cinema5D got the opportunity to travel to Japan to see the birth of this new camera and monitor its development.
Naturally, they shot video so the rest of us could take a peek. This is just the first part of a two-part series on the making of the GFX 100. Part one deals with the design and development of the camera, while part two will see the factory where the camera is actually made.
A while ago I got myself a new camera bag. I was looking for something smaller to carry around my Sigma dp cameras and I stumbled across this little beauty from Cosyspeed, which has been a great addition to my kit.
Since shooting products is something I love doing, I could not help but create a photo of the Streetomatic bag and I want to share the steps I took to create it.
For most of us, no matter how much fancy kit we buy, no matter how good we think we’ve got it, something comes along that just makes us feel totally inadequate. The iconic dolly crane from Saturday Night live is such a thing. And it makes the cranes that most of us might use in our own productions look like toys.
Where I am in the UK, each year, there’s a big battle between the supermarkets over who makes the best Christmas ads. Much of the population waits for them to appear in order to praise or criticise. It’s a bit like the Superbowl commercials in the USA. But UK supermarkets aren’t the only ones making great adverts at Christmas.
Although Christmas may seem like a distant memory for many of us now, Artlist has just allowed us to go behind the scenes on how they made their Christmas 2018 commercial. It took a very talented group of people, a lot of ingenuity, and a whole bunch of passion to bring the vision to life.
Swedish photographer Erik Johansson is known for his dreamy and surreal images. This time, he decided to depict the change between day and night. As always, the artist of great imagination took a lot of time and effort to turn his idea into a photo, and in this video, he takes you behind the scenes of his latest project.
If you didn’t know better, you’d swear this almost-two-minute sequence from new TV show, Kidding, was multiple takes with motion controlled cameras and some nifty cutting. But thanks to Episode 3 director Jake Schreier, who posted the final clip side-by-side to his Instagram with an overhead view of the stage, we do know better.
I’m a documentary photographer. I work really closely with families, business and professionals and I create candid unposed images that show love when comes to families, and passion and hard work that comes with it when it comes to professionals. No posing, no smiling, no lifestyle images that pretend to be real. Pure photojournalism. Street photography principles taken inside.
It all started as a joke. When watching Vikings (History channel’s hit show on HBO Nordic) together with my wife, I pointed out several times that she seemed to share both the looks and a similar attitude with Lagertha -surprisingly similar considering that the other one is a scientist / mom from Finland and the other one a shieldmaiden from 13th century.
