Photographers

Over at A Photo Editor, there’s an interesting interview with Vincent Laforet concerning the future of photography.  In it he discusses where these photo and video cameras are heading, including how new technology will affect the vision required to capture “the decisive moment.”

Here’s what’s important, if you can shoot 120 frames or 96 frames per second at a high resolution, it removes one of the single most difficult aspects of being a photographer, which is to capture the “decisive moment.”

Head on over to A Photo Editor the the complete interview.

Paul Nicklen is renowned Arctic and Antarctic wildlife photographer. Has a passion for these regions and the wildlife within, which is demonstrated by both his photography and words about life there.

In late-2009, I passed along a short video about his encounter with a leopard seal in Antarctica.  While it was only less than 2-minutes long, it was a very powerful video, featuring Nicklen’s world-class photography and a very cool story. [click to continue…]

They say adding motion to a timelapse is the way to make it really shine. The folks at Beepshow used an Air France jet as a 5000 mile dolly to capture this cool timelapse on an 11 hour flight from San Francisco to Paris.

The timelapse was captured with a Canon 5D Mark II and 16-35mm f/2.8 lens.  Audio was mixed on an iPad and the whole thing was edited in iMovie and After Effects CS5.

Yet another reason to always get the window seat.

If you’ve got half an hour to spare, the above video features a great casual conversation between Chase Jarvis and Vincent Laforet.  There are lots of little nuggets of wisdom in here, and it’s just fun to hear the guys talk shop for a while.  You can find the full 2-hour version on iTunes as a podcast.

If you want more of the nuts and bolts of HDSLR technique, check out the recent creativeLIVE course taught by Laforet.  It’s about 20 hours of content for $149.
