My Travel Camera Setup :: Manfrotto BeFree Live  

I've recently started using the Manfrotto BeFree Live as part of my travel vlogging camera setup. I've used Manfrotto tripods for years but I've never had one that travelled well - until now. The BeFree Live folds down extremely well - you can fit it easily as a carry-on for airlines, but it still has the height and durability to use in standard photography applications. If you want one of the best tripod options available for travel and vlogging, this is it.

Casey Neistat Ended The Vlog  

Casey Neistat is probably the most successful vlogger of our time. Starting in 2015 he decided to make a video every day for… well until he got bored. Over the next 18 months he exploded to over 5.8 million subscribers and over 1.2 billion views. Casey has been an enormous influence on the work that I do, but more importantly he completely changed the entire scope of inline video. This is just a quick thank you.

How To Get Audio With The Sony RX100 V  

The most asked questions that I've had - "are you using the mic's on the RX100 V" or "does the RX100 V have a built in mic input". The answer to both is no, but I will share a little secret. I present to you, the Sparrow Mach I… a run-and-gun shooting rig that I have built for the RX100 V.

Some questions from Photo Assignment #1 and a little motivation.


Some questions from Photo Assignment #1 and a little motivation.

Photography Assignments 1 :: Variations  

The first in our series on photo assignments deals with the concept of variation in photography. Objective: it expand your capacity for creative thinking. Edward De Bono suggested that often we develop habits based on our minds ability to store equations to solve problems. If we want to do X – our brain selects a way we know how to do it. So how do we change this and force new “equations”? This is what we will discover in this assignment. Edward De Bono :: Lateral Thinking http://amzn.to/2fk1Dp6

Sony RX100 V :: WOW!  

The Sony RX100 V is the latest compact camera in the sony lineup. Building on the success of the RX100 IV, Sony has added a redesigned stacked sensor and DRAM chip. The camera now features 315 phase-detection autofocus points and supports continuous high speed shooting at up to 24 frames per second. The RX100 series has been one of the industry standard cameras for vlogging and on the go shooting. Sony RX100 V at B&H: https://goo.gl/J3dksK Sony RX100 V at Amazon: http://amzn.to/2enb3BQ

The Skotographs of Madge Donohoe :: Halloween Special 2016  

So its that time of the year – time for a special Halloween edition of the Art of Photography. In this video I have a special guest and we’ll be talking about the “skotographs” of Madge Donohoe (made between 1921 and 1939). Her vintage photographs of the occult personified the darker side of the roaring 20’s and paved the way for experimental “thought photographers” of the 1960’s. This video is sponsored by Squarespace.

The Challenge of Cheap Cameras  

As we move into Photo Assignments I want to suggest getting creative with old cameras. Modern cameras offer most photographers more options than they will ever use. A GREAT photographer should be able to create GREAT images on any camera. This is where creative thinking comes into play. The limitations of dated equipment force you to change your approach. It often spawns creativity. The Amateur Photographer's Handbook :: http://amzn.to/2eaMrv2

Sony RX100 V Preview :: What To Expect  

Sony announced the new RX100 V compact camera last week. I have been a huge fan of the series having owned the Mark III and the Mark IV and have been using them for the last few years. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V :: https://goo.gl/73y9r0 Major improvements are announced with the autofocus speed and tracking as well as other improvements to 4k video and HFR slow motion shooting.

Color Photography of Jacques-Henri Lartigue  

Jacques Henri Lartigue is one of the great photographers of the 20th century – known for his whimsical, action based black and white work. Many people are not as familiar with his color photography. Beautiful and engaging, it is very different than the Lartigue we’re familiar with. Book: Lartigue, Life In Color – http://amzn.to/2d4yFej Lartigue’s color photography was done during 2 different periods. The first was his use of Autochrome plates from 1911-1926. Autochrome had a specific look used by photographers such as Heinrich Kuen. Lartigue went back to color a second time in the mid 1950’s with film as by this time he was shooting 35mm with his Leica’s and 120 format with his Rolleiflex. The work from this period is absolutely wonderful and rivals many of his contemporaries doing color work at the mid-century such as Saul Leiter.

Epic Boosted Board Fail  

Yeah, I ate it riding Sara Dietschy's Boosted Board. But otherwise it was a great trip to NYC! In fact, the Boosted Board was sheer fun all the way to the pavement.

Launch Event :: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV  

Sponsored by Canon :: Canon invited me to the Canon 5D Mark IV Launch Event at the Whitney Museum of American Art! Canon worked with 4 photographers who were given the 5D Mark IV and 24 hours to make something. The resulting photographs and video were released at the event as the first images made on the Canon 5D Mk IV. I also had an opportunity to talk to Technical Specialist Drew MacCallum about some of his favorite aspects of the 5D Mark IV including touch screen focus, burst rates, 4K video recording, why the chose to do a cropped 4k and the Motion JPEG codec.
