This Photographer Sees Things in Bird Swarms

This Photographer Sees Things in Bird Swarms Photographer Ariel Leshinsky of Beersheba, Israel, has spent a couple of years photographing starling murmurations, those mesmerizing, swarm-like flocks. But Leshinsky adds a dose of creativity: he aims to capture and select moments when the random swarms look like recognizable things… like the “seal” in the photo above. Here are some other “intricate shapes” Leshinsky has seen in murmurations: A cat walking away with its tail up An exclamation mark A donkey (or moose?) A paw print (or sideways surprised face?) A person’s side profile A dinosour “A...

Wedding Photographer Posing Guide: Poses That Work

Wedding Photographer Posing Guide: Poses That Work Do you often struggle when posing newlyweds, not knowing what to do next? Shooting under pressure, you then ask the couple to kiss while neglecting their body positioning, posture, hand movement and facial expression. The ingredients to a good portrait include: quality of light, composition, exposure and a flattering pose. To not properly pose your client is similar to missing a key ingredient in your meal. Something just doesn’t taste (look) right. When glued together, you no longer see the facial elements (eyes, nose, lips). All you see is the back of someone’s head covering the other...

Why I Switched from Profoto to Godox

Why I Switched from Profoto to Godox It was time to upgrade my entire lighting system. My Profoto Compact heads (in perfect working condition) we coming up on their 10th anniversary. In my Profoto arsenal, I had two 300 w/s heads, one 600 w/s head, and an AcuteB600R. Advances in flash technology in the past years have brought HSS, TTL, and (wireless) radio triggers into the mainstream (no more need for Pocket Wizards) and portability and long battery life in the form of Lithium-Ion battery packs. Only two years ago Godox was still taking baby steps in the strobe arena. Today, they have, in my opinion, the most affordable and...

Are $5 IKEA LADDA Batteries Identical to $20 Eneloop Pro Batteries?

Are $5 IKEA LADDA Batteries Identical to $20 Eneloop Pro Batteries? Do you use Eneloop Pro rechargeable batteries in your photo equipment? You may be able to get the same performance at a much lower cost. This interesting 7-minute video from Matthew Eargle of AirborneSurfer looks into whether these relatively expensive batteries ($ 20 per pack of 4) are actually identical to the much cheaper IKEA LADDA batteries that cost just $ 5 per pack of 4. Noticing that all of these rechargeable batteries are made in Japan, Eargle guess that there must be some overlap in the supply chain. There’s probably not that many battery factories pumping out...
