Hey everybody, it’s Jay P. here. I’m down in Pasadena. We’re doing a little walkabout with the new Sony a6700 (buy here). A lot of great features with this camera. Let’s explore them. Let’s see how it works. Let’s see some images. And let’s just see exactly what’s new on the new Sony a6700.
Many photographers occasionally (or often) find themselves outdoors having to shoot a portrait. We don’t want to lug a ton of light gear around, so we rely on the available natural light to give us what we need.
Usually, it feels like the sun has a vendetta against us, though. In this video – a video whose title does not do it justice – Jay P Morgan shows us four ways we can shape natural light using just a single modifier. The 5-in-1 reflector.
Getting your camera low or in a small space unlocks new shooting opportunities, but it can be challenging. Jay P. Morgan has some great DIY camera rigs that will raise your photo and video game to a new level.
In this video, Jay P. shows you how to build these three simple and cheap rigs from scratch. You don’t need fancy tools, lots of bits and pieces, or too much time. Plus, you only need around $10 to make each of them, if not less – since you may already have some of these items at home.
In addition to glass, shiny metal is one of those materials that are very tricky to photograph. Metal objects require specific lighting to bring the best out of them and make them look appealing and not overly bright and reflective.
If you want to learn how to properly light metal items, Jay P. Morgan comes to the rescue. In this video, he gives you some useful tips and guidelines on lighting and photographing that tricky, shiny metal like a pro.
Reflectors are one of the most valuable tools a portrait photographer can own. And we’re not talking about monetary value, but usefulness. Their cost is relatively inexpensive, but the value they can bring to your images can be pretty immense. But what if you’re just starting out and don’t want to buy one or several reflectors of varying sizes? Or what if you just don’t have the size and shape of reflector you need in an emergency?
Well, here’s Jay P Morgan from The Slanted Lens here to save the day with three DIY options that you can repurpose for use as very effective reflectors. You might already even own one or all of the things he shows off in the video and not even thought about using it as a reflector before.
Hi, this is Jay P Morgan. Stop shooting on manual. This is when you should use auto ISO. That really comes into play when I’m doing sports, I want to stop children, I want to stop something that’s flying around really fast I go to auto ISO.
Photography and video conferences. Are they dead? Are they going to happen this year? Is it kind of the nail in the coffin for conferences? Because they were sliding before. Where exactly are they at? What’s going to happen and what can you expect coming in 2021 and 2022?
A probe lens like the Laowa 24mm f/14 open up a whole new world of creative possibilities. But this world costs around $1,600 and you may not be in the position to afford it right now. If this is the case, Jay P. Morgan has a video for you. He will show you how to made a rig that gives your videos a very similar look to a probe lens, but at a much lower cost.
Hi, this is Jay P. Morgan. Today on The Slanted Lens I’m back out here where we photographed last week. We photographed this little pizza cart called Dracari’s Pizza. It’s a great little cart with neon lights on it. I’ve been shooting food trucks for the last little while and have really enjoyed it. I still have the Hasselblad X-1 D. So I was not happy with the image I got here last week, it looks strobe-lit. The lighting was not integrated with the scene. And I felt like it kind of missed it. So tonight, I’m going to take that same image.
The Sony a1 checks about every single box I could possibly want in a camera. In this video, we compare the Sony a1 camera vs the Canon R5. Does Sony leave the Canon R5 in the dust? And what about price? Is the Sony a1 Worth It? Or would you choose the Canon R5? Who would pay this much and why? Let us know if you would choose one of these and why?
