Photographer Greg McCown had a lifelong dream to capture a rainbow and a lightning in a single image. This may seem crazy but if there is one place in the US where the weather is crazy enough to pull this off, it has to be Arizona.

The iPhone wow-ed us all when it first came on the scene in 2007, and over the years we have seen how photographers, both amateur and professional, have used it to create some pretty stunning images. Even as far back as 2010 the guy at FStoppers amazed us with their iPhone fashion shoot using a 3gs.

Planning a fast paced, action sports photoshoot in which there is only one cameraman trying to capture multiple angles, is true test of any photographers ability to pre-visualize and plan a shoot. A skill which is priceless when you’re commissioned to photograph high energy sports and once in a lifetime moments similar to the exciting challenge Brett Wilhelm took on when he decided to photograph a champion freestyle mountain biker pull of a world record breaking flip.
Take a look at some of the behind the scenes action as Wilhelm shows you how he played the part of three photographers at one time.
GoPro has some cool time lapse features, but they are somewhat restricted, especially the interval between shots parameter which is limited to 60 seconds. If the camera is close to a computer though, you can get total control over the camera by issuing simple HTTP requests.
Those commands control everything from waking the up the camera; through
Most photographers have a mix of gear from many different brands.
For example, it is not uncommon for a photographer to have both Canon and Nikon camera bodies, a mix of Canon and Nikon speedlite strobes, maybe some third party speedlite strobes like Yongnuo or Nissin and studio strobes.
If that is you, you will want to check out the new Cactus V6 wireless flash radio triggers. According to Cactus:
The Cactus V6 is the World’s First wireless flash trigger that works ON ANY CAMERA (with a standard hot shoe or PC Sync port) to control power output, wirelessly, of Canon, Nikon and Pentax’s system flashes ALL AT THE SAME TIME.
We put the Cactus V6 triggers through their paces – read on for our review of the Cactus V6 wireless flash radio trigger system.
