This topic may not be strictly related to photography. But, deals with an important aspect of our lives photography can affect – relationships. If you’re a portrait or fashion photographer, your significant other might feel uncomfortable when you’re photographing someone from the opposite sex. And in this video, you’ll hear some thoughts on overcoming this problem. Photographer Manny Ortiz and his wife Diana share their story in this honest, personal video. They both dealt with jealousy, and they share how they managed to overcome it. So if you and your partner have the same problem because of your photography business, this video can be helpful.
Despite picking up a little in popularity in the last year or two, wet plate photography is still quite an alien process to many photographers. More and more information about it pops up onto the web every day. What I’ve not seen, though, until now, is an entire start to finish video or article which details the entire process.
Thankfully, photographer Markus Hofstätter has done exactly that, in this video. So that you don’t miss out on any of the process, he shot the whole thing in 360° with his Insta360 camera for the complete surround experience. So, throw on your headsit, sit back, and have a watch.
Drone timelapse has started to become quite a popular thing lately. But it’s only very recently that people seem to be really experimenting with it. The short film, Low Earth Orbit, from Hong Kong based Visual Suspect really kicks things up a few notches.
It was shot over Folegrandos Island in Greece, using a mix of manual and automatic flight modes. They call the technique “orbital drone-lapses”. They’re a great way to really show off the landscape and give a good sense of scale while still allowing you to focus on a point. A very cool result.
You knew it was coming. It was inevitable. A new iPhone is released, so somebody has to go and do a photo shoot or make a short film with it. Well, that short film is now here. Called “Made in Paris”, it was shot by Ryan Earl and Nick Arcivos of AmnesiArt.
Wedding photography doesn’t often offer the creative opportunities photographers would like. The venues aren’t always that spectacular, you’re often working to a pretty strict time schedule, and some couples just don’t want to get all that creative.
For photographer Christine Diaz, though, there’s always time for inspiration to strike. With the outfits of the bride and groom, mixed with the beauty of the San Francisco City Hall, Christine was indeed struck. DIYP got in touch with Christine to find out a little more about that inspiration and how the image was made.
We haven’t featured all that many timelapse films on DIYP this year. I think it’s mostly because there were so many amazing ones last year. It’s quite difficult for them to compete for peoples attention now with the bar being raised so highly. This one, though, stood out to us.
Created by Will Pattiz and the team at More Than Just Parks, Rocky Mountain takes us on a journey spanning the seasons. Will tells us that the film took a couple of years to actually shoot. And watching the film, you can understand why. There’s so many different scenes and locations, that trying to capture an entire season in just one cycle can be difficult.
You know those videos you watch and think: “No way is this real, it must be some kind of magic?” A short movie Box by Bot & Dolly will make you feel this way. It’s an awe-inspiring video created with robot-powered projection mapping on moving objects. It transforms two moving flat panels into all kinds of optical illusions, bending, flying and teleporting across the stage. And as for the interaction of the actor and the illusions – there’s no CGI, but everything was captured in-camera.
Photographer Ed Verosky admits in the opening line of this video that he’s not a creative genius. But then, very few of us are. Just coming up with something creative out of thin air isn’t easy. We need inspiration. And I’m not suggesting we copy. Just something that inspires us, gets us thinking and starts those creative juices flowing.
Different things inspire different people. What might inspire me may not inspire you, and vice versa. For me, it’s often movies and music, but I can be inspired by all sorts of things going on around me. Ed talks about what inspires him in this video. Maybe it’ll give you some ideas you hadn’t considered.
Of course, it’s not really floating, it’s an optical illusion. Painted on a road in the fishing town of Ísafjörður in Iceland, the crossing appears to float in the air. At least, that’s how it appears to drivers coming up the road. It’s sure to make those who haven’t seen it before think twice before speeding through it, especially if people are waiting to cross. Well, many of them, at least.
