The Bright Flashes During NBA Games You May Never Have Noticed

The Bright Flashes During NBA Games You May Never Have Noticed Here’s something you might not be able to “unsee” if you’ve never noticed it before: during an NBA basketball game, whenever there’s some exciting action around the rim, there’s a good chance you’ll also see a bright flash of light illuminate your screen for a split second. These are the powerful strobes installed high overhead by photographers. What you can do with these strobes was featured prominently after the recent Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers. The NBA shared a gorgeous set of photos by...

Why You Should Try Soaking 35mm Film in Ramen Soup

Why You Should Try Soaking 35mm Film in Ramen Soup Submerging your film in liquid might not seem like a good idea, but when done properly it’s a photography technique that can garnish unexpectedly beautiful results. Without any post-processing work, you can get a distorted effect with vivid streaks of color and interesting textures. Editor’s Note: This post was originally published in Format magazine, and is being republished here with permission. Photographer Polina Washington is an expert in these “film soups” and describes the process as a risk that could destroy your work. “But, if even one image turns out well, it’s...

SpaceX Sonic Boom Shakes Camera (and Cameraman) from 6 Miles Away

SpaceX Sonic Boom Shakes Camera (and Cameraman) from 6 Miles Away Thinking about shooting a SpaceX Dragon landing? Let this video by Kerbal Space Academy serve as a lesson: you’re gonna need a SERIOUS tripod. K Space Academy’s Das Valdez set up his camera about 6 miles away from the Landing Zone—just outside the CCAFS Gate at Port Canaveral—to capture the SpaceX CRS-11 Launch and Return to Launch Site (RTLS). But even knowing that the landing rocket was going to deliver double (or is it triple?) sonic booms, Valdez and his camera were not prepared for the force of the blast. “We’re gonna need a bigger tripod. And new...

How to Prep Your Photos for Print in Photoshop

How to Prep Your Photos for Print in Photoshop If you have never printed your own work before, you might not know that some careful preparation is needed to make sure the colors in your print match what you see on your screen. This 20-minute video from photographer Michael Woloszynowicz will teach you how to print your images with confidence. Getting an accurate print is not straightforward because of the complex variables involved. Firstly, your computer’s monitor uses a different color space (RGB) than your printer (CMYK), so your image needs to be converted to the correct color space.

Testing Nikon’s New 28mm f/1.4 Lens in Morocco

Testing Nikon’s New 28mm f/1.4 Lens in Morocco Last year, I was fortunate enough to earn a Nikon ambassador badge. I took this as a recognition of my work from a the institution I admire for making the best tools to meet my creative needs. A few months later, going through my work on a Shotkit article, Nikon representatives asked me to shoot and test the new Nikon Nikkor AF-S 28mm f-1.4E ED. I took on the challenge and, about a month later, found myself getting lost in the souks and surroundings of Marrakech. Searching for great light to emphasis on the qualities and trying to find weak spots of this new member of my gear bag was fairly...

10 Important Lessons I’ve Learned as a Professional Wedding Photographer One thing I’ve realized over the past few years as a professional wedding photographer is there are not many people, guides, or information out there on how you should approach a career as a pro wedding photographer. I consciously made the effort to assist as many photographers as I could to ensure I could learn the trade and industry before I took the leap to becoming self-employed. Even after all that experience I still take time to step back and think ‘wow, I wish I’d known that before I started my own business’; so, for those of you who are interested and willing to...
