Recently, I was reminded that most folks have no idea how to behave around horses. Too often, people assume they are gentle, docile creatures and many are. But, wild or domesticated, horses are half-ton animals who are built to bolt and, if needed, defend themselves with extreme prejudice.
Even when power and workspace are readily available, backing up footage can be a real pain. Technically, the process is deceptively simple; just drag and drop your footage from your CF or SD card to your external hard drive. When the first copy is done, repeat the process with the another external drive. Surely, the process is so simple that software could not possibly improve it. Right? Wrong!
It is not often one finds someone willing to traipse around the chilly Alaskan countryside, looking for moose. But, that is precisely what I found when I met Clemens Vanderwerf last spring. At that point, I knew I had met a kindred spirit; someone I wanted to shoot with again and someone I wanted to talk to more about our craft.
GoPro created the action camera segment. Many others followed but, with the exception of Sony, all have met with limited success. With today’s announcement at CES, Nikon enters the fray and brings something entirely new to the table … 360 degree video.
Joel Grimes’ work is instantly recognizable. From powerful, dynamic posing, to a rich, yet desaturated, HDR look, to masterful compositing which is both surreal and firmly grounded in reality, his photography is iconic. His work has such intensity that, when I met Joel a few years back, expected him to be equally intense and, perhaps, aloof. Instead, Joel is easy-going, approachable and generous with his time and knowledge.
A little over year ago, I stumbled across an amazing image on Facebook that someone was passing off as a production still from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. Knowing how closely J.J. Abrams protects his mystery box, I was dubious and started digging. That search lead me to Matthew Callahan and the toy photography project that would come to be known as Galactic Warfighters.
Today, the FAA formally announced plans for the registration of small unmanned aircraft (UAS), better known as “drones”. Reaction to the FAA plan has been mixed. Many understand the need; some see it as unnecessary governmental intrusion, especially hobbyist pilots.
Lately, I have been researching studio configurations. Jeremy Cowart’s Triptik Studio Walkthrough got the juices flowing; especially the rolling backdrop that doubles as storage for bounces, flags and other gear. My space is an open floorplan and I already have
This morning, BenQ announced the SW271C to its family of color accurate professional monitors. This 27-inch 4K monitor features USB-C connectivity, as well as HDR10 and HLG video support. Featuring AQCOLOR color accuracy technology, the SW271C covers 99% of the
While the printed photograph is the final expression of a photographer’s vision, making inkjet prints is problematic and expensive. That’s why there are still labs printing photos. There is a printer company that offers affordable, ink-free prints for photographers to
Thinking of getting into stop motion photography? One of the first things you have to familiarize yourself with are the different frame rates you can use. Your choice will influence how your results will turn out, so it’s important that
Been saving up for a new camera and think it’s finally time for you buy one? There’s no problem with that if you’re in urgent need of an upgrade, especially if you’re a professional photographer. However, you may want to
