Vince Vaughn and Other Hollywood Actors Pose for Hilarious Stock Photos

We all know and love (and hate) those stale stock images that any and every business looks to use on websites and print material. Some of us create these images and sell them to the stock agencies, while others might even purchase a few of them when a client can’t afford something original. Enter Vince Vaughn and the cast of “Unfinished Business,” who teamed up with iStock to re-create some of their own “stock...

Behind the Scenes of Blair Bunting’s Fashion Shoot for Lowepro

Lowepro wanted something different, special for their Echelon bag release. The Echelon series is different from anything they had made before, and therefore the images needed to “pop” in ways that would separate them from past photo shoots. With this in mind, they asked Loweprofessional Blair Bunting, a personal friend of mine, to shoot the campaign in a way that would highlight the new line. Blair decided to try his hand...

Photographer of the Day: James Weber and his “The Road Less Travelled” Wet Plate Collodion Series.

We recently went to a WOWTalks event in Brooklyn, where we saw James Weber talking about his career and the phases he has been through as a photographer in the game for almost 2 decades now. Weber has been creating photographic art for over 19 years in a variety of photographic mediums including wet plate, film, polaroid and digital. He specializes in fashion, beauty, portrait photography and much more. Creating beautiful images is...

Affinity Photo Review by High-End Retoucher Pratik Naik

Pratik Naik isn’t just one of the best retouchers on the planet, he’s also an incredible teacher with a vast knowledge of how the programs we use in this industry actually work (like, at an algorithmic level). In short, he understands the what, and the why. This makes him uniquely suited to evaluate new platforms like Affinity Photo, the Photoshop competitor product that is currently free to download in its beta...

Photographer of the Day: Liza Van der Stock and her ‘Paradi$e Lu$t’ series.

Photographer Liza Van der Stock lives in Antwerp, Belgium. She studied sociology at the University of Ghent in Belgium and photography at the School of Arts nearby. Her documentary work is a blend of these two passions. It falls under the category of visual sociology, meaning she studies society through the use of images. Liza integrates her sociological background into photography to make photo documentaries that focus on relevant...

Lowepro Echelon Series Review: Don’t Just Get Somewhere, Arrive.

We spend thousands of dollars on cameras, optics, microphones, memory cards, rigs, computers, hard drives and tripods. We look at the latest from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, Phase One, Hasselblad and Panasonic and can’t wait to spend our dollars on the equipment and yet, increasingly, we carry around these thousands of dollars in frightening ways. I’ve seen cardboard boxes, tote bags and in extreme cases, plastic grocery bags. Sure,...

The Profoto B2 Review: Portability Maximized

The Profoto B1 might have been the best selling light for the company in their entire history, most certainly the best selling strobe in recent memory. But though the B1 freed photographers from the cord, it didn’t give them the true mobility that many were seeking. To answer that call, Profoto announced the 250 watt/second B2 battery off camera flash strobe, a light with at least four times more power than the top-of-the-line...

Nikon’s New Coolpix P900 Has a Ridiculous 24-2000mm Lens

If you wanted a point and shoot with preposterous zoom, then the Coolpix P900 might be for you. It has a ridiculous 83x optical zoom (24-2000mm equivalent) NIKKOR ED glass lens with the ability to reach 166x using Dynamic Fine Zoom and a super extra-low dispersion (ED) glass element. That element makes this camera ideal for capturing sharp images and videos from extreme lengths. Though not a particularly large sensor, it is a...

Nikon Has a New Wireless Lav Microphone

Along side the D7200 announcement tonight, Nikon quietly also announced a new wireless lavalier microphone: the ME-W1. It’s a weather resistant little bluetooth microphone powered by two AAA batteries that can wirelessly record audio in mono or stereo (when connected to the ME-1 stereo microphone) from up to 164 feet (50 meters) away.This is a curious addition to the lineup, as we generally don’t think of Nikon as a sound...
