The above video, shot by the Bui Brothers, gives a few minutes look into the behind the scenes of the epic fashion photography of Drew Gardner. You can read more about the video, the photo shoot and how you can get a little deeper into Drew Garner’s method over on the Bui Brother’s blog.
This is one you don’t want to miss.

White House Chief Photographer, Pete Souza, will be doing a live Q&A session this Thursday, October 28 at 7PM ET. He’ll be responding to questions asked over Flickr and Facebook.
More details over at WhiteHouse.gov.
I had decided to sit this one out . . . but there sure has been a lot of name-calling, face-making and side-taking, so I thought I would try to clear the air a little bit by offering up my opinion on the matter.
While I am a lawyer, I am not your lawyer and this is an editorial commentary on newsworthy issues rather than legal advice. Remember that one too – unless you’re paying a lawyer, you aren’t really getting legal advice, and what you are getting on blogs, forums and, for that matter, Twitter is worth just what you paid for it. Seriously, remember that the next time you want to rely on someone’s advice on a forum. The judge won’t be too keen on a printout of a blog post when you hand it to him as “evidence.”
Ok, with that out of the way, let’s dig into this Twitastrophe. And, if you’ve made it this far, and don’t know what I mean when I say the word “Twitter,” feel free to skip this post altogether. ;-) [Read more…]
I am always inspired (and humbled) as a photographer as I cull through the Photography Bay Flickr Group each week. As I was checking out some of the additions to the group this week, something stood out a little more than usual.
If you have read any photography websites this week, then you have probably seen this poster already. I first saw it over at Carlos Miller’s Photography is Not a Crime blog.
Somehow, the TSA has managed to take a general warning for everyone to “be on alert” and depict photographers who photograph planes as terrorist suspects. Newsflash to TSA: planes are fun to photograph. Ever hear of Airliners.net?
Maybe you’ll be ok though if you don’t wear a hoodie.
It’s time for our weekly break from the gear for a few minutes so we can enjoy another round of reader photos from the Photography Bay Flickr Group.
One of the things that I really enjoy about these sifting through these photos every week is seeing all the different kinds of cameras that people use – from point and shoots, to iPhones, to DSLRs and medium format cameras. This all just goes to show that it’s really not about the camera. That lightning photo at the top from sumoetx? Shot with a compact Canon PowerShot A720 IS.
As much as we all love cameras, lenses and other gadgets, it’s not about the gear.
Check out the rest of the photos below. [Read more…]
Flickr user, powerpig, responded to those questioning whether the above photo, and his other chipmunk photos were all just Photoshop. Well, they’re not, and the video below is proof of how he captures these remarkable chipmunk images. [Read more…]
As a follow-up to the buzzing story from earlier in the week, a California woman has come forward with a rather convincing claim that her Uncle Earl Brooks shot the $200 million+ Ansel Adams negatives in 1923.
She has original prints in her possession that are strikingly similar to negatives from the Ansel Adams garage sale collection.
