When shooting action sports or car races, there’s always a risk that someone will get hurt. As a photographer or filmmaker, that’s the risk you have to take. But as this video shows, sometimes an accident can be prevented if you only keep a safe distance from the subject.
It’s always an interesting experience to see things from a different perspective. So far, Lithuanian photographer Andrius Burba has shown us animals from below, which is definitely not the most common way of photographing them. But the latest series of his Underlook Project doesn’t include cats or dogs. This time, he decided to give it a shot with something less fluffy and cuddly – bicycles.
This project took Andrius to Netherlands, where the bikes outnumber people. So he shot all kinds of interesting bikes from below, which, you’ll agree, is not the most usual way we see them or take their photos.
There are plenty of fantastic DIY softbox solutions, but this one is definitely something I haven’t seen before. To make it, you’ll need an old bicycle wheel. It doesn’t only make a great softbox, but it looks really cool, too. So, if that old bicycle is just collecting dust in the garage, maybe it’s time to repurpose it. In this video, Prickly Sauce will show you how.
With the expansion and increased availability of action cameras, we’ve seen tons of different videos. Many of them are really epic, fun or so stupid that they cause some kind of a reaction. Because of this, our criteria rise and it’s not that easy to get impressed and amused anymore. But then, something like this comes up.
Dušan Vižnik was filming a bicycle ride through the woods in Slovakia when suddenly, a bear showed up running towards the cyclist in front of him. It’s scary as hell, and definitely an action cam video that will grab your attention.
Irresponsible and incautious use of drones can cause many harms and problems. From crashing it into a building, to smashing someone’s head (or your own) with it, drones are definitely far from useful and fun if you’re not careful.
This time, some genius flew a drone near the cycling race. The drone smashed into a bicycle, causing one of the cyclists to fly over the handlebars and severely hit the ground.
Remember that guy in the truck who tried to kill that photographer and eventually got charged with felony? This is kinda the same, only instead of a guy, it’s a girl, instead of a car it’s a golf cart, and instead of the guy trying to kill the photographer, it’s the photo crew almost killing the girl!
Other than being “that guy” for the rest of his life, the unnamed photographer who caused a massive crash at The Giro d’Italia (Tour of Italy) will likely face several lawsuits following Thursday’s crash during the Giro d’Italia.
Daniele Colli, the cyclist whose mangled arm made headlines worldwide, was said to file a complaint with local police on Saturday, with his team and the competition organizers filing their own suits.
Luckily for spectators, the organizers and team owners are inclined to keep the action close to the crowds and focus on educating viewers rather than distancing the racers.
